Here's some random street shots taken during my after-dinner walk this evening.
Schizz, I recommend the following.
Go here on Wednesday AM around 9:30 or so:
If it is showing red or white on the precipitation map for the state of Veracruz, light up a puro and start checking off things to see in DF.
You can scroll down the page and check the coming 3 days. It usually updates around 9am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The Mexican federal electrical commission use it to plan their work schedules.
It's going to get real wet and windy. The track of the thing from here:
is showing that Friday could be rather interesting here. I am going to buy a new mop and bucket at Costco, need anything? LOL!
Regarding your photos on your apres dinner stroll, it reminds me of the scene in 6th Sense where the kid is talking..."I...see...shorts"!
Got another view of the woman in the center of the last pick, the one in white? Just, uh, curious, you know...
You sure take alot of pics of men in shorts! Is there something we should know....
If our VER plans get rain-delayed I might just hang with the guys here and ride back with Trice. Funny how these trips evolve sometimes.
It's all good! I'm on a motorcycle in México!!
P.S.: woke up this morning remembering my first time on a motorcycle in México. It was 1981 and my ex and I were touring the Yucatan. Saw a place renting bikes and we ended up enjoying a great day trip. That was a few months before i got my MC endorsement. Don't think they'd rent to someone without an endorsement in today's México. Funny how the memory gets triggered.
From my morning walk:
And you sure have a good eye for men's hairy legs.
JK, just wanted to give some here a taste of everyday street life in México in addition to all the pix we post of ruins, mountain roads, etc.
P.S.: I only concern myself with the sexual orientation of women.
I sure we would have both blended right in!
Looks like my trip will be substantially altered. I just found out that my 86 year old father was diagnosed with brain cancer! I am currently in south Mexico, about 2,200 miles from home. I will sit tight for a day or so, awaiting an estimate from Hospice as to how much time he may have left! At 86 years old, we knew that his time was limited, but we did not expect it to be from brain cancer!

Sorry Donnie. It sucks. Be thinking about you and your dad.
Sorry to read about your father Donnie. Hang in there.

I think JD cheated and sneaked a gringo in a burgundy shirt and grey pants into his photo montage.
And, while you're at it:
Got a message through Facebook that an anchor is a common symbol for hope, peace, and prosperity.
Now you know ...
Mark, I thought I was the only guy on here who bad read that HCB piece.
You are obviously a man of fine taste and excellent breeding.
To your health!
FWIW, ive been in Mexico over a year now and nowhere, and I mean nowhere has it been a problem wearing shorts.
Humorous essay on the subject of old gringos wearing shorts in Mexico. The author compares shorts to a codpiece and tights. -
I assume this is the author, who lives in Mexico. SMA evidently.

Maybe I'm not from Texas, but is it acceptable to wear cowboy boots with shorts? Or is that crossing some sort of line like black dress socks w/ sandals and shorts? I kinda hate that sticky leathery feel on bare leg... I'm grateful that I can rely on ISM for fashion tips. The pissing match that seems to be floating beneath these tips only adds to the entertainment value.
I can honestly say, with great pride, that I have run naked down a busy street in cowboy boots.
I don't recommend it in Mexico, however. Toronto in the early '80s was a fun town. I cut a far more dashing figure 30 years ago.
Ok, so if anyone is still reading LOL!
Schizz, it is looking like your present side of el pais will be drier than here. If you feel the need to log long miles in winds and heavy rain, by all means come on over!
It is going to start raining tonight supposedly and stop some time in November.
This is why he travels with trice
Sorry to hear that Donnie. God bless.
Hey Donnie. I'm sorry to hear about that. I hope things work out for the best. I'm here in Lazaro Cardenas staying at Hector's place. He calls the room where we are staying above the shop "donnie's room" It's pretty funny. He thinks the world of you. It's always Donnie this...and Donnie that. very cool. I'm glade My son and I had a chance to hang out with him. I'll post a pic of us. We're going out do dinner. Took a day trip to Zihuatanejo today to hit the beach and bought a huge hammock. This is beautiful country here and Hector says hardly anyone ever comes to visit. The libre between Uruapan and here almost kicked our butt. 5 straight hours of twists and turns. Up hills and down mountains. A complete dream come true. Hopefully you can still make it here on your way back...Hector and his son are looking forward to it.
