    Shit. Now I have to ride back. Did the Parrilla turn into an Irish Pub with Argentinian meat?
    I'm headed north in a couple of weeks amigo. Should be back your way in a few months.

    Fish and Chips? You got fish and chips there? Are they as good as what you had at The Turtles Head? And why did you pick such a non-scatological name?

    I dont understand the name. I know what a turtles head and a barking spider are, but shamrock, I'm not so sure. :scratch :lol3

    Do we get kicked out if we fall off the stool and throw up on the floor? :rofl :freaky

    Steak sounds good, as does a good burger and fries. That is, when I get tired of scarfing down delicious deep fried artery clogging empanadas!!

    Getting my house ready to sell now. Also checking on shipping companies to ship my bike from Houston to Medellin. Hope to be dodging Colombian cagers by April, if not sooner.

    Will stop by for some grub and Aguardiente! :dg

    Must of just killed a scotsman like you to open an Irish pub. :rofl

    Went on a trip to Germany to ride around. Planning a sailing trip from Finland this summer. Still have that Freewind in Ecuador. I'll have to go back, sell it and upgrade to KTM in Colombia.

    Scotsman moves to Canada

    and attends his first baseball game.

    The first batter approaches the batters' box,

    takes a few swings and then hits a double.

    Everyone is on their feet screaming

    "Run!!!"



    The next batter hits a single.

    The Scotsman listens as the crowd again cheers

    "RUN!! RUN!!"

    The Scotsman is enjoying the game

    and begins screaming with the fans.



    The fifth batter comes up and four balls go by.

    The Umpire calls: "Walk."

    The batter starts his slow trot to first base.

    The Scot stands up and screams,

    "Run ye lazy bastard rrrun!"

    The people around him begin laughing.

    Embarrassed, the Scot sits back down.

    A friendly fan notes the man's embarrassment,

    leans over and explains,

    "He can't run -- he has four balls."



    The Scot stands up and screams:

    "Walk with pride, Laddie!"

    Mmm...I was just beginning to wonder about an Irish pub in Colombia.
    St.Patrick's day will see me celebrating my 5th anniversary on the road and now that you've got Guinness...
