Hi! My name is Abigail Adams Carroll. I am 9 years old and am from Wilmington, North Carolina. About three weeks ago, my family and I traveled from Wilmington to Patzcuaro, Mexico, where we’ll be living for six months. While we’re here, my father and mother are writing a book.
I decided to keep this blog to tell you about what’s happening here in Patzcuaro. While I’m here, I’ll tell you the things I’m doing and the places we go, the people we meet and the things we see. My dad, mom and little sister Eleanor will be keeping blogs, too ... but MY blog will be from the unique perspective of a soon to be sullen American pre-teen who has crazy parents, a bratty sister, and a big loco perro who thinks he’s a chihuahua!
This picture of me was taken in our new home. Our new home has a little loft where we all sleep and a great big living area down below, with a nice little garden in the bathroom. We will be posting some pictures later. I like to curl up in the loft and read. In fact, I will be posting book reports as part of my home school work.. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find your next great read – until my mom and dad’s book comes out (they made me put that in here).
In my next posts, I’ll be telling you about the trip here and all the things we saw and did on the way to Mexico. Right now, we’re getting ready to walk to the village to visit the market in the historic Centro to buy our food for the day from some of the stands run by the local Indians.
More to come ... Hasta luego!
