Met a Californian – born Mexcan who was taking back
a Guadalajaran bride with him. Known her two months. Looks around the eyes and mouth, like the singing teacher but larger and fairer. He would talk about her to me in English for she understood not one word! Little rain but not enough to quiet the sandstorm.
Packed and did a washing. Got cigarette case for Fay’s brother, a magazine in the National Theatre, two pieces of music and a map of Mexico. Looked for a dictionary but didn’t find one for less than 9.50 pesos that I’d have. Found out that Fay and Carsey were right in that Peatones means pedistrians – Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz took me to the train but did not buy tickets to Tacuba. Ho! However Mrs. Davis and Ethelyn were at the train and put me on – Got sleepy soon after we started and got a rubber pillow – Took off my glasses and broke them again – They were rose-colored (comparatively). Maybe that means something –
Anyway it has been a grand summer. None better – Ruiz’s invited me back whenever I come – They surely are lovely people. Lonely today in Mexico sin mis companeros! (without my companions!)
