I had lunch today with four other expat women who live in La Manzanilla full-time. We were reminiscing about the Sunday afternoon a year ago today--two days after the hurricane--when somehow everyone staggered into town and ended up outside the bookstore, where a trio of young Mexican employees of a distant US consulate had been dispatched to find Americans and contact our families. For me, this was the most emotional moment--seeing that all of my friends were safe and knowing that the outside world was trying to find us.
