Starting this past Monday I had go get Drivers License on my calendar. It kept getting moved as other seemingly more important things came up.
Today, after 3 moves, I went!
The ladies at the Information Desk, once they could take a break from their jokes and conversation, and after inquiring if I had my comprabante de domicillo, my immigration documents, my passport, was I renewing or getting a new license… informed me that the system was down and that I should come back on Tuesday, or the 21st, or maybe the 28th, they were just having a hoot! Ni Modos!
Since I had already driven 30+ minutes to get there – and since there was a big book fair going on I decided to step in. Today must have been school group day. I enjoyed looking around, I enjoyed all the books and displays. Sometimes I enjoyed being gawked at by the kids.
I bought a few books – three 7-10 year old level stories that used some verb tenses I’m not so good with, might help, you never know! I bought a small libretto named “Leyendas de Yucatan”, again, trying to increase my conjugation level. And I purchased a book “Testimonios de Mujeres Mexicanas”, which is frank and sincere confessions of women, mostly how they tried freeing themselves from bad relationships, lack of schooling, poverty, etc. I actually was reading some in Volume II, and was understanding it, so decided to buy but then bought Volume I, because it must be good if they made a volume II; and I do tend to be an optimist.
I drove around in some areas of town I am unfamiliar with, drove a good ways on the Periferico, which was great fun, and stopped for lunch.
So anyway, I’ll try to get my drivers license next week, and now I have something to read while I wait!
