Just got a call from our man Miguelito, who rode from San Miguel de Allende to Laredo today, heading for Austin.

He'll be stopping by the Casona for some lunch tomorrow.

He was basically one day behind our man Kenny from Ashville NC, & PJ.

They stopped by here today on their way home after 5 weeks in Mexico. They are routing to catch some jazz tonight on 6th Street or some such music venue in Austin town.

Is it time for the "Kiki" joke, yet?

I sent two different letters of authorization to Guatemala BMW yesterday along with copies of my Debit Card and Driver's License. Now, I am hoping they will send my parts!

On the other hand, I have felt a genuine warmth in the way many, many people have greeted me and taken the time to talk to me about the bike, where I am from, why I like Mexico, etc...
Sometimes you have to pick up that dirty old lamp in the antique store that your wife and friends tell you not to touch or bother with and then rub it. That is when the Genie comes out and rewards you for your trouble.
The best thing you can do is come to Mexico, enjoy it, and then rub your buddies noses in how they missed out on a good trip because they were paranoid and addicted to the IV drip of negative news about Mexico.
Damn good thing Ted Simon never listened to anyone!

Well, it's still as true today as it was a couple of years ago...C'mon, sit down a little closer to the fire and feel its warmth, while I show you where that old lamp and its magic can be found. It won't take long...

You can find that old lamp between the arches...



On the side of a mountain...



In the fields of a high mountain valley...



Or across an old footbridge...



Or you might want to take the stairs...



Maybe you just want to sit near
a tree...



Or sit beside a lagoon...



It could be found near a strange plant...



It sometimes hides just behind the doors...



You'll see it, if you look through a window...



Look for it wherever the lanes meet...



It's always going to be wherever you seek shelter...



For sure, it'll always be on the other side of the wall...



Just follow the old mountain road...



Or take a new one...



and "maguey" you'll come back and look for it again and again and again...



Yes, your friends and family will tell you to leave it alone, but you can't, because it's Mexico, the genie is out of the lamp and he ain't goin' back in anytime soon!
