Stop #1: Mexico
Just after my first race (and by just after I literally mean less than 14 hours after I finished my first race) I was in Mexico!
My family usually vacations at the Jersey shore, but since my sister's occupation allowed for further travels, we went south of the boarder for sometime (and by some time I literally mean some time****).
MagPie (yes, that's her real name) and I went to the land of Pasta, Pizza and Pretty Plazas, also known as Italy! More specifically, we mingled through Milan and where met Mandie, my other crucial comrade. (To your right is a snapshot taken of the lovely ladies, MagPie and Mandie, in the moment: willynilly, if you will.)
After our visit to one of the fashion capitals of the world, Magpie and I set out for the most beautiful city we had ever seen, Florance. We spent most of the time with our necks crooked back and mouths agape wander-lusting about. We even bumped into another old friend of ours, Dave. He was all about joining Team CF, but the shirt was a little too small.

Here we are just outside of the home of
beignet and coffee
(pronounced BENYAAYY's and Coffahhs!).
Cafe Du Monde.
And here we have oldest church in Louisianan, St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. Just outside was the oldest form of transportation in the history of mankind, a horse and carriage. This method of travel predates the use of pieds, but was quickly replaced with two wheels and handle bars*. Which brings us back to ... Team CF. Funny how you can come face to face with your own history, isn't it?!
And In this one, Bernadette, my sister, and I are in a tree. . .

** Although the transcontinental railway was constructed, nothing else about this sentence is trustworthy.
*** Again, A lie. Although, the cars are pretty old. Click Here for the actualy history.
**** My racing schedule only allowed for me to stay in Mexico for 3 1/2 days. Short and Sweet.
