I am writing this dispatch from the business center of the historic St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio.
At the San Antonio Civic Center this morning I had the opportunity to speak to several hundred students ranging in age from early grade school to college level about the value of higher education and about The Best Mariachi in the World/El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo. I also gave away a hardcover of each version (bilingual, Spanish and English) as prizes for answering mariachi trivia questions.
The rest of today will include a bit of tourism and watching student competitions this evening, not to mention taking advantage of the local cuisine.
On Saturday, December 6 I will spend the morning getting reading for my reading at Borders at the Quarry.
