I Need A Life

I have been spending way too many hours in front of the computer lately with no indication that anything is going to change in the near future. It’s not that I don’t enjoy what I’m doing, it’s just that I have a bit more on my plate than I planned to have. The consequences of taking on a new project. This past Friday I had a full day to work without interruption because I was house / dog sitting for … Continue reading

Change of Plans – No Costa Rica In January

I had been planning to take off to Costa Rica sometime in January and do another month long stay like the one I did a few months ago in Mexico, but it looks like those plans have to be changed. The main reason is the new blog I started about a month ago – Penny Experiment – which will require me to be around to keep it going. Basically, I have 100 pieces of postcard artwork coming in that I … Continue reading

Secret Hot Springs

A well dressed man walks into the Internet cafe and scans the people sitting at all the tables. He instantly heads for our table and greets the man sitting in front of me. They talk for a few seconds and then Pep tells the man “This is Jeffrey. he is my friend.” We shake hands and then the well dress man is off to another table to talk to the person he had come to meet. Pepe begins to talk … Continue reading

Mexico Dentist and the Cracked Tooth

I’m sure that there is a universal law that states that the pain you are about to feel at the dentist’s office is in direct proportion to exactly the opposite of how much he says that you won’t feel a thing. I wish that I would heed this wisdom more often. If you have ever had a bad experience at the dentist or have sensitive teeth in any way, you are best advised to skip this post, or at the … Continue reading

Free Range Cows

I’m scared of cows. Not in the same way that the scorpion in the shower scared the hell out of me the other day which had my heart racing a hundred miles an hour as I sprinted to safety because I failed to notice it when I first stepped in, but I must admit that I have a new found fear of cows. Cows in Baja Mexico are free range which means they basically wander anywhere they want and if … Continue reading

Baja California Gaveyard

I was wandering the other day and came across the Los Barriles graveyard. I always find graveyards in different countries interesting because they are often so different. Much like the colorful houses that are part of Baja California, the graves also stand out for their color as well as their complexity with ornate sculptures:

Storm Clouds

It looks like this area of Baja California will escape Hurricane Rick. The hurricane has been downgraded to a tropical storm and made a sharp turn east so it appears that it will miss the entire Baja peninsula except for clouds and rain from the outskirts of the storm. Those storm clouds are now coming in and giving me a different view as I work from the normal sunny skies, yet still beautiful in their own way:

Mexico Art Project Travel Book

The first of what I hope will one day be 100+ traveling art books has been completed and I hope that I find someone in the next couple of weeks to pass it along to another traveler. The progress of the book can be followed in the sidebar and I hope that those that end up with it will update where it is as it comes into their possession. I debated whether or not to begin the first page of … Continue reading

RV Hurricane Preparation

People around town have started to prepare for Hurricane Rick. The good news is that it has weakened from a category 5 hurricane to a category 3 hurricane overnight and should continue to weaken as it heads towards us. If you have ever been in a hurricane before, category 3 is nothing to sneeze at and a storm you’d want to avoid if possible. So while the houses board up the windows, what do the people do that have driven … Continue reading

Hurricane Rick

Tropical Storm Patricia put some worry into the people living in this area, but we got through it with a bit of rain and not much damage. Hurricane Rick looks to be another matter: The good news is that this current category 5 hurricane is supposed to lessen in power and hit landfall as a category 2 hurricane. The bad news is the current projection is a direct hit on where I’m staying. The talk around town is hurricane preparation … Continue reading
