my normal routine


so i'm healing very well. my next checkup is the 13 of november, at which time i'm hoping i get declared close to 100 percent recovered from my injury. the last time i spoke with my surgeon, he told me i could go back to doing all of my normal activities, except for rock climbing, mountain biking, and pushups. i told him that rock climbing and mountain biking are my normal activities. oh well, anyways it won't be long now before i'm all better. i've been doing some stretching and strengthening exercises, it's made me sore but i can feel my flexibility returning.

what else... hmm. oh, one of the the chickens that lives in our backyard died. is it called intestinal obstruction? or a blocked cloaca? anyways, here's a tribute video:

This last thursday i went to Tijuana, Mexico to participate, or more correctly observe, an Encuentro with the Zapatista Otra Campana tour. It involved listening to people speak all day about what they hoped for with the latest development in the struggle of The Zapatistas. it was very inspiring. I felt priviledged to hear all the people speak so passionately about their own struggles, and when subcomandante Marcos came out and talked I was very impressed with his eloquence, humility, and tenacity. I went with my old housemate Simon and his new housemate Dan, who quickly became a new friend of mine. all in all, a very good trip.

here are some photos from Tijuana:
