I´m a Fulbright Scholar, English Teaching Assistant, Tourist in Acapulco, México...
A few entries back I mentioned the sounds of mangos slamming on the roof outside my bedroom window. I would love to record that ruido, and in fact one just dropped before I started writing, but it's a little difficult. Por eso I captured another "sound of Acapulco," this time me refiero al garbage collector.
That's the cue for me to run downstairs, via the spiral staircase exit not through the carport, which doubles as school restauran on weekdays, with trash bags in hand to make it before the basurero passes by.
