Welcome to my Casa Mixteca

Hey everyone...I moved to a new house and we finally have a decent internet connection in the house! Actually, it works great. I gotta get ready to go decir despedidas (say good-bye) to Lindsey, the physical anthropologist who worked this year for the same project as I did last year, but just wanted to give a quick update and let everyone know that I am doing very well.

We started excavations at the Casa Mixteca, a Mixtec house site that is near the "collective" site of Monte Alban (a 20 minute camioneta ride away) and is of course Post-classic and awesome. Right now there's just me, the person technically in charge of the project, a student from ENAH and a worker. We are working in the north room of patio 3, one of the larger rooms, and we hope to finish up tomorrow with that and move onto the next room. Its taking a bit longer, not only cause of the lack of personnel (or human labor) but because its a big room with a lot of erosional fill. Its a lot fun though, and I will post pictures shortly.

In the mean time, here is a great pic of me relaxing during the lunch hour.

I think that everything posted was very reasonable. However,
what about this? what if you added a little information?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a title to maybe get people's
attention? I mean "Welcome to my Casa Mixteca" is
kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.
In my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.
