Early morning, Raul and I get up and headed down to the town hall, so Raul could get paid for a job he is doing for the Governor. It was kind of funny to see the looks on all the town hall people seeing a gringo inside. I don’t think that’s a normal event round here. The day was slow going, but as the day wore into the afternoon, Raul’s friends started to show up. In the evening everyone started playing rock and roll music, then some Mexican songs. More people showed up and the drinking began. It seemed that the whole family was partying together to the early hours of the morning.
