I just found out a few hours ago that I’m going to the inauguration! A dear friend hooked me up with a ticket and all has fallen into place. My brother will be in DC on business related to the event so I have a place to stay, something that would have been impossible to secure at the last minute. I think I may have booked the last bus tickets available to get there and back. I’ll have plenty to post when I return.
You are probably wondering what the above picture has to do with the inauguration. It is of a small café in Uruapan, Mexico where a decadent piece of cake was being a washed down with café con leche. Catherine and I and another buddy stepped out of the hotel after watching election coverage to grab a bite to eat thinking there would be hours to go before it was clear who won. A big screen television played in the background. We knew who won when a group of about 10 men sitting at a table next to us began to cheer.
