Almost home!

Tonight is my last night in Oxatapec..........it has been 26 days on the road and I am ready to sleep in my own bed! I've been to Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, all over Mexico City, Puebla, Cuernavaca, many towns in between and finally last weekend we spent the weekend in Toluca attending the wedding of good friends Maru and Polo. The wedding was great but Toluca was cold cold cold! I am happy to be heading back to the beach tomorrow!!! I have so much to do I can hardly think about sleeping tonight but I know I have to. Antonio will take me to Cuernavaca tomorrow where I will grab a bus to Mexico City Airport and then a quick 1 hour flight to Vallarta!!!
I will give a complete wrap up of my trip next week but for now I will leave you with a few photos of the wedding weekend!!!!!

Ahh Mexico City!

I am loving the city! I love the vibe, the energy and the sheer size! For the most part people have been kind, only one small incident where a man was beating the bus window with his cane becuase the bus driver almost ran him over, I guess that's a typical day in the city. We rode the metro (Mexico City Subway) it's great during the day, you can get from one place to another in a hurry and for CHEAP .30 Cents! Yeah I know. We have made some amazing contacts and have some great new clients here. We will be coming back in November for the opening of one of the new stores that picked up our lines. I will also then be selling a line to a great store in Polanco. So lots and lots to look forward to!
We are under a pretty major hurricane warning in Puerto Vallarta today. It's creeping in on us at a category 3............I am nervous as I am not there to take care of my house, workshop or my belongings. My friend who is house sitting called yesterday and said her and her husband have it all planned out and are at my house now putting everything in the back bedroom! Yikes!

Off to the antique flea market here, can't wait to see what we will find!! To Cuernavaca tomorrow morning to pick up more clients!

How is everyone doing this weekend????

Saludos Chantel

Mexico City~La Condesa

Cancun proved to be a tough selling ground for us! We worked 12 hour days, went to countless appointments in Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen and Cancun. We did get a great new client in Cancun in Plaza Kulkulcan............Joyeria Rubys, if you are down that way to forget to look for me! We are getting ready to pound the pavement in Mexico City in La Condes and La Roma, the markets here are looking very very good!

I will leave you all today with a few photos from Tulum...........I fell in love with this place in one day!!!
