Frustrations....not with the horses

So, I just found out that my contract is expiring at the end of October. In some ways I'm disappointed...in other ways I'm happy to move on.

Apart from aquariums all round the restaurants' walls containing the main course (but still alive!) the food is hugely spicy. So, I suppose if Mexican cooking is your thing, it's the very place for your next vacation, but for me, I find eating a breakfast which leaves… Continue
