Getting myself fit out of the water.

I have been spending the past two weeks since the New Year getting back in shape, as it were. That fight with the bull brought out the best in me, but took the best out of me too. Fortunately, San Jose is actually a pretty good place to get yourself fit in so many different ways.

The one about carrying a suitcase around the house.

Another New Year’s tradition that bewilder me still to this day is when ticans run around their houses TWICE with a suitcase or a backpack. This one supposedly ensures one’s capacity to travel far in the coming year.

The one about eating grapes for the New Year.

There’s a lot of traditions observed by native ticans during New Year’s Eve. Another practice is the consumption of twelve grapes at midnight.

The one about wearing red undies for the New Year.

I don’t know about you but I’m wearing two kinds of jockey shorts as I’m writing this. You never know.
