Tomorrow we are off to the US for 2 months and hopefully will see many of you, our friends and family who are reading this blog. Now we live in two worlds and are always happy to leave one for the other, and then happy to return as well. We are so lucky and I am continually grateful for this life together that we are leading.

We have been very involved in volunteer activities this whole year. I have started a project with a few friends called "Libros sin Fronteras" which is a reading project for young and old - both Mexicans and expats - reading the same book in either English or Spanish. In November, the author Francisco Jimenez will come and we will hold several events for those who have read the book - it is a lot of work, but a rewarding. Please visit our indiegogo site (and see a short film with me in it - 3 min) and please, consider making a donation to this project.
Richard has written several database and accounting programs for various not-for-profit organizations here in town and recently went to the local orphanage to teach the young boys juggling. He has also taken charge of the computer delivery program to the University girls who receive scholarships from Mujeres en Cambio - an organization that we are both involved with.
