First, it was rattling, banging and clinking noises that were pouring right in the class room. Then, the side walk was shut off, and you had to walk all the way around to enter the Congress building.

Oh, let’s not forget having to walk to the corner and cross the street at the light, instead of walking right out of the door and crossing the street in the middle to get to Cafecito (Oh how I love the Chivito- bacon, ham, steak, mozzarella, crispy shoestring potatos, onions, chipotle mustard and egg served on toasted bread. Yummy).
