Well, we’ve been back from Guatemala and Chiapas for about a week now, so time for a recap. Photos taken: 632 (well, that would actually be “photos kept.” Many more were taken but culled as duplicates or not that great. The Flickr “best of” set was further culled to just about 160.) Stayed in five different hotels, ranging in price from $6 to $35. Saw about eight...

As long as I was uploading travel photos, I did the photos from last year’s Mexico trip as well. Mexico City, Teotihuacan, Taxco, and Oaxaca—also labeled, described, tagged, and geomapped. Hoorah!

Got the best of my photos from the recent Guatemala/Chiapas trip loaded onto Flickr. All labeled, described, tagged, and mapped!
Ugh. Nasty riding in today. Not slippery at all, but really, really wet. Snow sticks to my glasses so by the end of the ride I can’t see at all…I have to look over the tops of the glasses to see where I’m going (clear, but completely out of focus). Shoes wet, snow and road dirt all over the back of my jacket… I really need to take some time and fix up my snow bike,...

Playlist of songs that are awesome
The Adventurists (www.theadventurists.com) have a new “race,” titled The Mototaxi Junket and the Search for the Lost City of Asuncion (But Not Really Because It’s the Capital of Paraguay). It’s from Lima, Peru, to (duh) Asuncion, Paraguay. Four thousand kilometers (2,485 miles), over the Andes, deserts, and “the most dangerous road in the world” (though like all...

Lonely in a Crowd. I find it’s true that you can be lonelier in the middle of a crowd than if you are alone. Especially if the crowd is having sex with each other. Good Manners. When a lady comes to the table, a gentleman should always stand up. But how does he know if she is a lady? First you have to ask her a lot of very personal questions, and once you’re sure she really is a...
Riding in Snow
I really like riding my bike in the snow. I love the *crump* sound of the bike tires in the snow, and the *crackle* of riding over ice. Yesterday afternoon, coming home about 12:30, there was about six inches of snow on the ground, and riding down the Cherry Creek bike path was lovely…the tires just sank through the snow, and you’re just gliding through it. Little more resistance than...
Mashup Videos →
Page has a couple of links to brilliant artists who cut up and layer various musical videos from YouTube (everything from old television performances to guys singing in the shower to amateur “how to play the bass guitar” videos) to create songs. Using the videos themselves as instruments—meta, and very cool. Good music, too!
Three days left, and then we head off to Guatemala! I am SO ready to go…I’ve had everything packed for the past week (like, literally packed. In the backpack, sealed up and ready. Clothes I’m wearing the day of are in a pile on top. Carry-on bag is packed.). Apartment is cleaned. Newspaper and mail are put on hold. Just a few things left to do at the end of the week: clean the...
