I got back early wed morning from my 4 day trip to Leon, Gto Mexico. Its a city about 4 hours away from Mexico City. The flight was pretty good going there and back. Customs back in LAX sucked though. It seemed like they had only 1 person working when there was tons of people in line. Most of my mom's side of the family lives in Mexico, so it was great to see everyone again after a few years. Lots of cousins, aunts/uncles and my grandma. We stayed at my family's ranch near a town called Jesus de Monte, where a festival was going on. It was my first time at the festival and I really enjoyed it. I also got to visit Guanajuato, which is the capital of the state that I was in. Its a very old city with tunnels all around the city that you can drive, park and walk through, beautiful buildings/churches dating back hundereds of years old. I got to visit a monestary which used to be a torture like facility, an old mine, a museum filled with mummies and a delicious candy shop! None of my relatives there speak english so I realllly got to practice my spanish there. I understand more than I speak it but could easily communicate with them. I'm going to try and practice more so that I can get even better. Here are some pics of the Temple of Valenciana in Guanajuato and of the town. The temples and old monuments are soo beautiful. I hope to visit again soon!
One of the stations where I work at, had a paranormal society come check our station building for ghosts and spirits. Im not sure if it cost anything, maybe just for fun. It seems alot of my coworkers have had close encounters with some strange things in the past years that they have worked here. One saw a man when she was in the bathroom, another heard a woman crying and one was pushed a little by some unknown force. Ive even heard some strange noises when I would work sometimes late at night there. So this group set up their equipment and cameras and we searched for ghosts. Well on the video screen and some pictures that they took, we saw like a orb like circle thing move and they said it could not have been dust or anything like that. oooooo One of my coworkers told me that someone who used to work there, committed suicide i think a few years later after he left the station. They said that the ghost like apparition they saw, looked like him. I'm not sure I believe in ghosts and things like that but Ive always been fasinated by the paranormal, so it was a real treat to see ghosthunters in action.
