Roman spent 12 pesos (about 1 American $) of his 20 peso allowance on a bandanna.
"When I'm wearing this people won't know that I'm not Mexican! They think I'm Americano because of my blonde hair but now they can't see my hair. They will think it's black!"
I didn't have the heart to tell him that his unruly blonde hair was still sticking out all over the sides of his disguise and his white freckled face was still looking fairly Americano-ish. He happily skipped along absolutely content that he was looking like everyone else.

I doubt anyone has noticed that my pictures have drastically changed quality, other than me. Our camera spazzed out and stopped working a couple weeks ago. It was less than a year old and we really liked it. We sent it back to Canada in hopes that some friends of ours will take it to London Drugs before the warranty is expired. I had the forethought to pack along our old clunker camera, just in case. I'm trying to be thankful that we at least have a camera, even if I have to remember to use it outdoors, in perfect lighting and to ask the subject of my photo to "hold that pose" for several seconds (you know how well that captures the moment with busy kids!).
On another technologically challenged side note. I changed our browser to Google Chrome and my blog is working much faster and my spell check is working again. I still have some silly filter things to deal with while I'm down here but I'm hoping that I won't be loosing my pictures anymore.
