Last...huff, puff, pant, pant...edits are in on Flirting in Spanish. The book is now in galley form, ready to send to reviewers. Publishers Weekly wants to see it! El Sol (http://www.solliterarymagazine.com/), an online magazine based here in San Miguel, wants to run an excerpt.
Big wheel keep on turning...
Things are happening!
Back in Momlandia, I woke up crabby yesterday that I had to drive to Queretaro for a school trip. I don´t like to drive! I didn´t want to leave my cozy little business (http://www.jasminedayspasma.com/) where I sit with my computer when I am not doing massages! But there I was at 10 A.M. passing the new Presidencia and the glorieta and heading toward Highway 57 on our way to Santa Rosa Juaregui with, why, five laughing teenagers in my car. What a nifty day it was indeed...my 14 year old and her friends squished in, talking about school and friends and boys, music playing, elbows out the window in the sun!
Parque Bicentenario is the deal of the century. (http://www.parquebicentenarioqueretaro.gob.mx/)
You pay a 35 peso (about 3 dollars) entrance fee and then everything except the paddle boats is free. A giant tiled pool with skyscraper slides. Roller coasters, bumper cars and more rides. Tubing down a river that goes through a dripping tunnel. A skateboard park, green areas, kiddie rides. By the end of the day, I had exhausted, happy teens. But not exhausted enough. Later, with all the money they saved by going to Parque Bicentenario, they gathered at my spa at around 6 pm, and headed up to the movies.
