WTFK!

This IS my bottle of Merlot at El Farol, Parras, Coahuila, last month:



Edit: oh, sue me, not last month, but in June

For the Record: I earned this bottle. A few days later God would kick my ass in the Sierra Madre in Sinaloa

That was some good Merlot. Not too sweet like so many. And it was yours, so even better.

Just for you, Ben:



In the courtyard at the Farol

This isn't your "Day's Inn" decor

JD having that glass with me after a GREAT ride:



You might be able to tell from Schizzman's expression:

That was an OUTSTANDING day of riding from Texas to Parras.

And....very EASY to do.

PM me or JD on details on how you can escape the US and be in paradise in 1 easy day

A Teaser

This is the remnants of a winery somewhere on the outskirts of Parras de la Fuente, Coahuila, where I and JD were in June:

My pic:



See the arches in the building in the distance?

Those remnants have something to do with this:

Studio Pic:



Who is making a movie near Parras in 1968????

Personally, I like it when new information comes up, or I get corrected. Nobody is perfect, nobody is an expert, and everybody benefits from info exchange. If I am doing something wrong, it's great when someone tells me.

I enjoy listening to reports from riders who have come through about their encounters in other parts, their bikes, the usual scuttlebutt. What I simply cannot stand are BS filled tales of "daring do" and "I outsmarted one of them thar Messicans", nothing pisses me off more than that. Same for rudeness and ugly scenes.

Personally, Starbucks is probably the absolute worst coffee you will find in Mexico, overpriced, overhyped, and pales in comparison to what you will find in a mug outside the house and coffee mill of the family of Andres in La Esperanza.

That's nirvana in a mug.

Choose your vegetables based on surface area.
Never rode in Mexico, but I can only gather from what Big Dog Mark Sampson writes on his blog....that he loves the people and place, and has, at least in his writings, ever had a bad experiece with the people....and I would trust him as much or more than anybody.

Never rode in Mexico?
Do it as soon as you can.
As for trusting people, I trust those who either live here and I know, or visiting riders whom I have had the pleasure of riding with or at least having had a meal here with.

Now, on to getting Trice his 50 Shades of Jokes in Spanish.

Number 1
Numero uno

Que sale si tu cruzas un burro y una conejita?
Una conejita bien bizco!

Next?
