Funny, because during the last few days I have been overwhelmed with tales of Ambrose Bierce, who famously vanished en Mexico while chasing Pancho Villa.

Pirate J, interesting you should mention that. I always thought the story was a little odd, maybe overblown. You've got a 70 something guy with asthma and a ton of baggage heading into Mexico on an adventure.

Wait a minute!

That sounds like some of the geezers on this thread! LOL!

We could get a cooler, a couple of lawn chairs, and do an awesome street theater version of "Waiting for Godot"

I now have to watch my back for those rabid Beckett fans from the basement. LOL!

Now that sounds like a plan!

Roald Dahl, Ambrose Bierce, and Samuel Beckett all on the same page! The crowd in the basement would be like gorillas playing with their turds.

Sounds like me as a matter of fact! (Asthma, but not quite that old )

I like the alternative ending of From Dusk till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter wherein Bierce is revealed to still be alive but a vampire.

Hey .. could happen!

I think they make the best wine in Mexico hands down. The Cab and Merlot are both excellent. I don't even like white wine but their Chenin Blanc is excellent with sea food. If you have room please do pick up a bottle of the white for SRa SR.

The reason they know that it's the first vineyard in the Americas (1597) is because it was the first vineyard sanctioned by the Crown of Spain to produce wine. For taxation purposes, and protectionism of locally (in Spain) produced products, the King kept a tight control on the economic colonies including the production of wine.

Up until 1824, what is now Durango, Chihuahua, and western Coahuila including Parras were part of the Nuevo Vizcaya Province, which had its capital in the city of Durango.
