Getting out more

Getting out more

From the Sier­ra Gor­da de Gua­na­ju­a­to where I spent the last 2 days work­ing, although it doesn’t feel like work when the set­ting is so beau­ti­ful.      
Headcolds and Horses

Headcolds and Horses

A week­end lost to a head­cold gives me time to get a lot of read­ing done and some clean­ing up of my pho­to library. I was going back through pho­tos from last year, and found this inspir­ing shot from Gua­na­ju­a­to. Guess what I’m read­ing? Lots and lots of Game of Thrones. Actu­al­ly I fin­ished the first book, so now...
Almost a complete set

Almost a complete set

After climb­ing in Sala­man­ca, Gua­na­ju­a­to yes­ter­day, I think that I’m just miss­ing one of the “local” crags — those with­in say an hour to an hour and a half away — before I have the com­plete set. The miss­ing locale is an old crater and sup­posed to be nice, but we’ll have to see how it com­pares to...
What a birdbrain.

Just hanging around…

…get­ting ready for Day of the Dead, and I am excit­ed. I reread­ing that and I don’t know if it sounds wrong or insen­si­tive, but I real­ly enjoy the art and learn­ing about this aspect of the Mex­i­can cul­ture. It is going to be a cou­ple of crazy weeks, and actu­al­ly I had a great, but busy week­end and had no time...
Take 2: Camping and Climbing

Take 2: Camping and Climbing

This time the plan was camp, climb, fies­ta, maybe more climb­ing. How­ev­er, look­ing back to Fri­day, my stom­ach was already a bit off. The (near­ly) 3-hour run on Fri­day prob­a­bly didn’t help. In fact, it kind of destroyed me. Maybe an omi­nous por­tent for Sat­ur­day, I had no ener­gy to post about my suc­cess for run­ning 2h51m....
Sunday in Las Tepuzas (I think)

Sunday in Las Tepuzas (I think)

I had anoth­er great climb­ing day this Sun­day. We drove just into Gua­na­ju­a­to state, and I think I’ve found the loca­tion on the map which indi­cates that the climb­ing is actu­al­ly in Quere­taro state: And you can start your day with que­sadil­las and pulque at the turn off to the crag. It was a great spot, hot...
Guanajuato, Mexico

Guanajuato, Mexico

There was no doubt that every­one was enchant­ed by Gua­na­ju­a­to. The most com­mon lament was that no one would be sta­tioned there. While we had anoth­er meet­ing can­celed here, the frus­tra­tion was tem­pered by the extra time for our cul­tur­al activ­i­ties. Even though I wasn’t real­ly eat­ing, I loved the green bak­ery, and I always love a mar­ket. I think...
Return from FBT

Return from FBT

I’m back from my most­ly inter­est­ing trip to Léon and Gua­na­ju­a­to. The high­light was def­i­nite­ly Gua­na­ju­a­to. Not only is the city just beau­ti­ful, but the mum­my muse­um is also amaz­ing. I’m work­ing on edit­ing the pic­tures, but here is a panora­ma of Gua­na­ju­a­to to get start­ed. I think every­one was dis­ap­point­ed that no one will be...
