so i'm here in Antigua for Language school, i was supposed to go on a hike this coming week but it was cancelled so i will stay here and celebrate Halloween and Day of the Dead this coming week and go to a kite festival locally as well, but that whats going to happen...

this is photos from this week here tuesday to friday only, i thought it might be better to group some shots so the first Antigua installment is from the candle factory at the Santa Domingo Hotel

Because Antigua is an old town the stone work and doorways are all unique which of course makes for some interesting shots

you couldn't compete with these guys there prices are so low its crazy, don't how they even buy the leather, but their quality isn't to your standards...

Well It sure looks like your having an awesome time!! And you'll get the language down!
I'm not sure what your brain is actually wired for?? That's the scary part! ;)
Any new ideas on a career or just keep on riding?? ;)
Be Safe my Friend!

ALL three of my bikes are parked there at the moment, have been there since August when I came to Mexico

Yeah I kinda remember thinking I will just be in Venezuela for 3 or 4 weeks and hell what do you know before too long at all I was looking for another 3 month TIP extension Venezuela is a fun place and only gets better knowing the right people in county And oh the gas

Got some nice photos going Paul, practice hard on the Spanish but not too hard or you may never escape Cuba btw I hope you are not married...

I was rough looking and things just happen way too easy

Goodtimes!

Cuba's good but not that good it's a small prison for a motorbiker and I think I might have overstayed my welcome last time

And of course that little broken leg thing,

that was the suckiest part but the sponge baths in Venezuela hospital weren't so bad

I predict you will have wild good time Looking forward to seeing how your experience goes

Favorite picture of my bike on island


Don't forget to take care of that other head ;)
