We met briefly at Zeitgeist last night. (I was the guy in the Revit suit, on a Dakar.) I did a poor job of talking to everbody; I'm sorry we didn't get to talk more.
Ran across this RR today, and I'm really glad I did. You're doing an excellent job! I'll keep tuning in for your fine writing and photos.
I may hit you up for recommendations for Spanish language classes in Mexico -- I'm interested in doing that and we seem to have similar tastes/priorities.
