Starry Starry Night

It's not my photo but it sure is close to what we saw last night.  After a nice nap and working with the riding mower yesterday, we got together with Dave and Val for a fire.  Sal and Barb have a clay chimney that sits on a small stand.  I've seen them before at home but never gave them much thought as they looked more decorative than practical.  I was wrong.  They put off a lot heat and light as well.  The smell of fire wood after thousands of years still draws us humans.  It gets very dark here at night and the stars shine bright.

We had a few drinks and and pretty much b.s.ed until around 9:30 and then we went to bed.  Dave and Val are heading out today for their home on the beach.   We will be moving to spot number one this afternoon and getting setup for a more permanent stay until Sal and Barb return around the middle of August.

Yesterday we all had lunch at La Cocinita again.   Better than ever.  The owner invited us to a shot of homemade mezcal to stimulate our appetites.  Wow, that stuff is good.   Crazy water if you drink too much, it can take you to the moon.

Hopefully tomorrow we can go hiking, weather permitting and getting my work done around here.  Monday afternoon I take the bus down the hill for my flight from Guadalajara to D.F. for a couple of days of meetings.


  1. Ah, ah! You gallivant off to the DF and leave poor Juan with all the work!

    It sounds like a great place. We are jealous!

    Is the WIFI working properly again? Did you try re-booting the router? I have to re-boot mine every once in a while.

  2. Love your recent trip posts. Keep up the great work!
