LandRollered into town again last night, this time with 0 falls. Not that I'm getting any more skilled, just that I was being more careful. No matter how cold it is outside, I always sweat when skating.

No wonder when I ask for Cointreau sometimes in Mexico they ask me if I mean "Controy". I thought it was just a difference in pronunciation until I asked in the liquor store in Palomas yesterday for some orange liqueur and ended up taking home a square, green bottle of Controy, a Mexican-produced Cointreau substitute, for US$8.65. Offhand it seems to taste stronger of alcohol and not so sweet as that produced by my cousins overseas.
