Holy Mole! Yes, it is good stuff. I have a couple pics somewhere of Miguels red VW covered in surf stickers and some of me in Zipolite in about 85 when I was a skinny surf bum. I will try to dig 'em out and post 'em.
I also lived in Thailand, have been married for 23 years to a Thai girl and my daughter was born there 20 years ago.
Both Mexico and Thailand are wonderful places. Enjoy!
