When I first walked into my room, I was taken aback by the larger than life poster of an adolescent girl. At the time she was on a different wall, but no matter where I put her, she seems to keep a watchful eye on me.
This is the turquoise place where I lay my head to rest each night. My house overlooks Avenida 5 de mayo, undoubtedly the busiest street in Tepoztlán, where I live. I get the pleasure of listening to the two traffic officers who pride themselves on blowing their whistles in as many different ways as possible, regardless of the fact they are only wasting their breath.
Although it may not sound like it, I do in fact love my house. Most would consider my house to be dead center Tepoz, with the Auditorium and Town Hall in the same block, making almost everything a short walk away. I consider myself lucky as well, because my house is relatively bug free and I have an amazing host brother.
