One year we decided to make salsa with them, about the same amount you have in that photo. To add some complexity, we decided to toast them in some oil in a cast iron pan on the stove. When they started smoking, all we could do is turn off the stove and run out of the house. They continued to smoke for a while and we couldn't go back in the house for a couple of hours. The fumes were indescribably strong and toxic and the house smelled for several day afterward. Fun learning experience.


Look at this Jackass!
Here these are called Chiltepins sometimes called chile tepin as 2 words. There are reputed to be the proto chile, the chile all others are derived from. 100K to 250k Scovilles units. A salsa with tomatoes, garlic, oregano, salt and a touch of vinegar is damn fine.

These are hard to cultivate. The process is helped by passing through a bird's digestive system. There is an article on my hotel website at http://www.losarcossonora.com/images...aldoct2010.pdf that explains it all

The Bhut Jolokia is also known as the Ghost Chile, which as mentioned is the topping for the Four Horsemen Burger

One million Scoville Units

The hottest Chiltepin is roughly about a quarter of that

As a natural antidote, Tom's wife Lynn recommended sliced cucumber to reduce the heat of the Salsa Chiltepin we were putting on our tacos

What did they call the Quest in Mexico? There was the famous "Ichivan" and the "GST" that could never be sold by that name in Canada (the GST is the federal goods and services VAT type tax), amongst others.

So I take it you are not interested in the PT Cruiser...remember, it goes 0-60 mph in...uhh...err...ahem...umm...about the amount of time it takes RMO to load up his GS1150.!

Peculiarities of the high plains

It was an early morning yesterday, I was up before the dawn...as the song goes...destination was out on the high plains, above Tehuacan and onto the Serdan Altiplano, the extreme lower reaches of the Plains of Anahuac.
Crystal clear and strangely warm, an odd combination up there, usually when it is warm, it is cloudy and hazy.

I found an odd little chapel, this one really stood out, painted green, white, and red with 3 weathered crosses. So I stopped to have a look, here is a color shot and then it's into monochrome because there is a story and stories are best told in black and white in my opinion...



And now the story begins...



I was clicking away, examining the structure, peered inside the windows and caught a glimpse of the Virgin and a few other items...



There was quite a view from in front, someone had a good reason for orienting the structure just so...



As always, there had to be a story, and that is when I noticed the three palm prints, faded, understated, but once seen, not forgotten...



Two large prints that you can make out with the filtered shot and one smaller one very difficult to see...some day I hope I can find a local and find out what happened, just to know, that's all.

I left wondering, continued on and el Pico gave me a couple of glances...



The final pic, below, is for RMO, I was thinking of him when I composed it, thinking of when he met Ansel Adams. Adams always said you need an interesting foreground. Glad these were stacked already, lined up to the peak.

Depth of field can be understood, but peculiarities on the high plains can be enigmatic, riddles that contain clues to humanity.



Riding solo is a yin-yang thing, you divide your attention between keeping yourself right side up and keeping yourself "balanced". When you get it right, you can hear the landscape talking to you. I don't always understand it, but I'm listening. I'm really listening...

too far north & too many people for me.
small house in Sayulita would be ideal as would a place in Melaque.

oh hell yes but when you get to christmas week things get crowded on the coast as it's a huge week for city folk to spend down at the beach. not that you can't find lodging but the cheap deal go fast to the locals.
so travel the west coast before that time and then visit the colonial highland cities during and that will keep you away from the christmas break rush.

you could also prepay for a sweet new years eve spot along the coast when 1st traveling the coast and then loop back down to the coast after christmas in the highlands. this way you'll know exactly where you are staying for new years. it's a blast on the coast and you can then head back north after a few days.

before christmas, some one here should know where the best place to experience las posadas in mexico. go there.

as for temps the west coast is ideal in dec where as it will be chillier upland in the center of the country. bring a bathing suit and a warm jacket!
