Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to everyone!

The rainy season is upon us. People in Houston, you have no idea how much you miss the rain until you only have it for four months a year. Now during that four months, it does rain every day, but oh, it's so nice! The weather is cooler, in the 70's, and hopefully power shortages will be a thing of the past.

Counting down our final weeks here. It's hard to move, but I am ready. Pamela, Seth, Toby & I were harrassed (a gang of about 10 boys licked the windows of the car and beat on the windows) by the window washers the other day and that made up my mind to get the heck out of this country. Of course, now I am carrying my pepper spray. The cops were right there at the intersection and did nothing, of course.

Then the next day, we went to Rose's tailor who gave us a too high price. When Rose and I came back to the house, she told me "He's too expensive". I said, yes, I think so too. Then she said "It's because you're white." I was like, I KNOW! and then I just kind of lost it. I'm really tired of being in a place where it's okay to harass me because I'm's okay to WAY overcharge me because I'm white. It would suck to have to live this way your whole life and I feel a lot of sympathy to everyone who have had to endure skin color prejudice. I don't know why it upsets me so much because everywhere I have lived outside the U.S. it's always that I'm foreign, so it's another kind of prejudice.
