I love doors. I have never seen bottles set in cement walls before, like at this cantina! Cool idea.

My cousins Angie and Steve came all the way from Puerto Vallarta to see my show! Here in the afternoon, they dropped in to say hi before exploring the neighbourhood and carnival.

I slammed my big toe into a cement step while wearing flip flops & rushing. The pain was excruciating. I thought I might have to do the show in bare feet. But I gently slid my foot into my high heels ... (see next slide)

...and voila, I could wear shoes. I walked slowly and carefully as I favoured the good foot but I think the toe was "bound" in with the shoe and I could get through it. I was stationary for most of the show but the audience didn't seem to mind.
