Please stand by. We are experience technical difficulties.

We are in Puebla, Mexico where revolution is in the city's soul and where we found the eighth wonder of the world (the Capilla del Rosario, photo at the bottom), but technology isn't feeling so revolutionary to me.
File under lesson learned:
I knew having access to consistent and reliable wifi on this trip would be an issue. Which is why we backed up important information and documents. But it only works if you use it.
Several days ago, Chad's Ipad mysteriously locked itself, along with my blog drafts which may or may not still be there when we find a location/authorized dealer we trust enough to fix it. And the iphone version of the website hosting the blog is, shall we say....different, than the complete version.
So, send your positive tech vibes to Mexico so I can share stories about our last days in Nicaragua, how we partied until dawn in Colon, Panama (well, almost until dawn), rode Panama City's brand new subway, and my joyous culinary tour of Oaxaca.
Until then, I'll be distracted by all the gold.
A very subtle sign indicates a chapel that is drowning in gold leaf.
Another lesson I've learned? Photos don't do most of what we have seen justice. The Capilla del Rosario (the eighth wonder of world, or so say the lovely materials we picked up at the tourism office) built in the late 1600's is no exception.
