Also known as Eeyore’s Birthday Party. Not that theÂ name makes any more sense, but this year was the 50th annual celebration. Oh Austin. You can google the actual event and read the history. I tried to mostly stay away from just taking pictures of wacky people, so I focused on wacky animals and their people […]
Turn the car around
No seriously, I swear there are zebras back there. Nothing like classic weekend Americana in Texas Hill Country.Â Best unexpected zebra detail: fuzzy ears I just hope they aren’t for selling zebra meat.
Be right back
Can’t write now. It’s fondue time.
Out of the theater
And into the near-summer brightness and heat on this last day of “Spring Break.” My SXSW film round-up will be coming soon. First, my first birds of Texas! A Golden-cheeked Warbler and a Northern Cardinal.
This is crazy… but you called me, maybe?
Sometimes you just have to take the call. As someone in the midst of the job search, I certainly understand the importance of a phone call. So, I didn’t mind that our beautiful Saturday ride down to the beach was occasionally interrupted to finish making evening plans. I don’t think this is what was initially […]
Into the wild(er) slightly more northern parts
I had a spur-of-the-moment chance to make a quick visit to the lovely state of Aguascalientes recently. I’ve been meaning to visit the Volunteer living up there, but scheduling these trips is tricky, unless you can just go with the flow and take the last-minute opportunity. This is now the most northerly part of Mexico […]
Lessons from the Ancients
I finally made it to the famous National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. It is an overwhelmingly impressive collection, so of course I’m going to have to make light of it. But really, it was great and a must see like everyone says. I probably should have paid for the audio guide, but I […]
A new perspective
After visiting the place many times over roughly a year and a half and climbing there for nearly as long, the one thing that was missing from my Bernal experience was actually climbing up the whole damn thing. Well check that off my list in a most pleasant way. We picked one of the classic […]
Don’t look back. You’re not going that way.
You are just going up, one step at a time. Beautiful day up, on, and down Malinche. Full report coming soon.
Beautiful and fun
No, no, I’m not talking about myself, like always, but instead the river, canyon and waterfalls at the RÃo Escanela near Pinal de Amoles. Saturday was a perfect day for a hike in and besides the river. I didn’t wear the best clothes for swimming, but that didn’t matter when we got to the real […]
Winning is a lot of fun
With trepidation I went to theÂ Festival InternacionalÂ Salva elÂ DienteÂ this weekend outside of Guadalajara. After a late arrival, I wasn’t sure how I was going to be feeling for the 10k trail race early on Saturday morning, but I just wanted to run as a part of my marathon training (which is only three weeks away!). I […]
A large automobile and water flowing underground
How did I get here? How do I work this? Where does this highway lead to? In my case, I was not behind the wheel of the large automobile, per Peace Corps regulations, but the questions still apply to a bit of a bizarre weekend. I can’t really say that much, except interesting times as […]
