Hello there !  * salutes*

I forgot to write about the 16.1 Mile ( 25.7 km.) Run that I had participated in 3 weeks ago.  My  running time was 2 hours , 5 minutes, or about 8 minutes /mile, which was way above  my  record of  5-7 minutes /mile. The first 5 miles was  easy peasy, the next 5 was a bit of  a struggle, but  the last 6 miles was brutal.  I was ready to  quit at that point , but those two elderly couples  who were running  waaay ahead of me inspired me to keep running.  I did manage to finish the run, and got a medal for it . Yay me !

 

I was reading the history of  the Manila- Acapulco Galleon Trade when I saw these 18th century maps of  Mexico and other Spanish territories north of Mexico.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Texas was Nueva Filipinas during the Spanish colonial era.

 

Mexico ‘s original name was New Spain. After independence, it was  changed to Mexico.

 

That’s what I learned  today.

 

This is all for now. Bye and peace.
