This was my first Christmas Eve celebration in three years! It was wonderful to be surrounded by family and getting the chance to eat ajiaco, fried cassava, and spicy Colombian salsa ahi. Nothing says Christmas like avocados y alcaparras in our family and it feels wonderful to be back home with them in Arizona.

I love my family, portraits as I get ready to leave Arizona for Florida
I tend to scare children with my camera, or at least I like to think it is the camera . . .

So tomorrow is graduation . . . today was our rehearsal at Sun Devil Stadium in my hometown of Tempe, Ariz. And as if this weren’t cool enough, I was fortunate enough to receive an award which will put me in the seat pictured below about four seats from the left in the first row. I may not be shaking President Obama’s hand tomorrow, but at least I get to be front row.
Students at rehearsal listen to instructions
For some interesting numbers get this

A doctor puts on her gloves outside the INER Thursday afternoon.
So yesterday I headed out with reporter Camilo Smith to Tlapan in the South of Mexico City to the INER or Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Respiratorias (Nacional Instutite for Respiratory Diseases). Our mission was to find a family, doctors and nurses who were dealing with the H1N1 or swine flu virus. We talked to an EMT, some doctors and then happened upon a father who was being discharged after spending three days in the INER. Then we asked if we could follow him home as he saw his children for the first time since being admitted.
No visitors are allowed in the area were H1N1 patients are kept to prevent the spread of disease and the only communication is through doctors, so needless to say his family was thrilled to see him. I’d love to post the photos here of that moment but I have to wait till they go to print. I promise they’re good though . .
Yes that’s a New York Fire Department shirt being worn by the INER EMT.
The below photos were taken on the extremely long ride between Roma Norte and Tlapa yesterday:
Sporting the scarf instead of face mask in Tlapa Thursday afternoon.
Pharmacist in Roma Norte takes a break, every pharmacy in the neighborhood is sold out of face masks and only one has gloves left.

My family spent the weekend visiting my Tia Margarita at the Cochise Stronghold in Southern Arizona. The area, surrounding by forestland (their trailer on the reservation there) is beautiful. These were just some of the pictures I liked.

My cousins are in town visiting from Colombia and they brought their sweet and adorable daughter Alejandra for her first visit to the United States. She is super sweet and adores Spiderman and these photos were taken as she watched youtube spiderman clips for over an hour.
