I guess you can stand around a pillar of salt and not become one - because you're in a cathedral?
I'm really, really enjoying your RR! I have a question, Do you ever attend any of the church services during your travels and if you do what are your thoughts.
WOW what an incredible place. I bet there was a wonderful sense of peace there.
I like this, the swirls in the ceiling are incredible.
Mark, I follow along as often as possible. You are enjoying a trip many of us dream of. As many have said in one way or another, "Thanks for sharing the experience!"
I have on my travels in the past, but not in the Spanish speaking countries as I cannot interact enough or understand. And most of the time I really do not know what day it is.
How is your Spanish coming along? I know that you spent a couple of weeks in school and I'm wondering if you finding it any easier to communicate.
Two weeks of spanish class does not make me fluent, but I can get a room, buy gas, order food, answer questions?, where are you from?, where are you going?, How much does the bike cost?.... So I get by. Directions are difficult or complex questions .... either end up in charades or and smiles but no understanding.
More schooling would be really good.
What a great thread!
This pic caught my eye. Ford Meterbox was started and is to this day operated by my extended family in Wabash.
Are you still working on it, do have a course of study? I think this would be the most frustrating part of the trip having so many questions and not being able to communicate them.
When my wife & I went to Mexico a few years back....that was one of the biggest hang-ups for us.
that and the differences in currency.
I'm reading the book by David Barr about his ride across Africa.....WOW, talk about language differences!!!! :eek1
Have you seen that new VW (diesel jetta) commercial where they load the "how to speak Spanish" CD and drive 12 hours to Mexico?
rip the CD to mp3's and play it in your helmet as you ride
Tried that but was too hard to hear the subtle tones ..... Just did not work for me. Hoping to do some more Language school along the way.
We are in San Augustin Looking at the Archaeological ruins. Very slow internet. Will try to post up things in a couple days.
good thing Billy Jack wasn't in town !!!
Hi Mark. Smilin Jack mentioned your seat yesterday while drinking some coffee during our ride to the coast. He said you had it done by Don in Albany. Mr Eds Moto. How is it doing for you? I have one on my DR and its about the best thing I've done to my bike.
Hope all is well. Enjoy your reports. Thanks - Be safe.
Hello Frank. The custom saddle from Don at Mr Ed's Moto in Albany is awesome!! I ride all day and my rear end is comfortable!! For me it is a must for long distance riding!! Worth every Penny!
your linky no worky!! ^^^
I had the pleasure to stop by and meet Radioman and his collegue here in Popayan! Hopefully we can meet up again on way back with some advance notice and we'll do a nice dinner and maybe run a loop!
Mark is being modest, he is quite the seat maker himself! Literally saved my ass in Baja!
Gracias Senor for stopping to say hello !! Was great to meet you and will be in touch as I know my plans!!
