Super Sweet Ride

I hat to blog about this hilarious car really quick though I don't have much time. This bad boy is on Craigslist and man, oh man, I want to buy it. It looks like such a fun car, unless you were driving through the poor area of town and then its a car with a death wish. I could only imagine what you would say if a bum came up to your window begging for some change. "I only have credit cards on me". "But what about the money in the dash, seats, and trunk". "oh, thats just my savings account. Sorry". Wouldn't you feel bad turning some one down when you are riding $300 deep? Anyhoo, If you want a sweet ride that comes with a savings account look no further! Oh I think you need to know what the tag words mean in order to buy this bad boy.

Next Tip Please

Tip #1:
Bring hand sanitizer- its a dirty world out there. Oh and you probably want to drink bottled water. Just in case. No one wants to get the squirts on vacation.
Tip #2:
Hit up El Morro at the northern most end of old San Juan. Its worth the money just for some good photo-ops as well as some great ocean views. Even if you don't want to venture inside the lawn outside is the perfect kite location.
Wikepedia says:"Fort San Felipe del Morro —or El Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Spanish— is a sixteenth-century citadel which lies on the northwestern-most point of the islet of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Named in honor of King Philip II of Spain, the fort, also referred to as "El Morro" or "promontory", was designed to guard the entrance to San Juan bay, and defend the city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.
In 1983, the fort was declared a
World Heritage Site by the United Nations and is part of San Juan National Historic Site. Over two million visitors a year explore the windswept ramparts and passageways making the fort one of Puerto Rico's main visitor attractions.

Tip #5:
Look for street signs on the buildings not on poles at the corner of the street. Have a good sense of direction, other wise you are screwed. The lack of any proper road signage in Puerto Rico makes it challenging to get around. Be prepared to make a lot of turn arounds while driving.
Tip #4:
Go eat once at El Jibarito on Calle Sol. It's a bit away from all the other restaurant places but the mofongo is the bomb and there other food is well priced and very tasty.

Tip #5:
Walk around during the time right after sunrise and right before sunset. Your pictures are always warmer. Or just take them when ever for some cool effects, like the sun glare below.

My Pucarico Trip

Apparently my nephew has a hard time saying Puerto Rico. He first called it Pooparico, now he calls it Pucarico. It's cool though. The trip was a blast. Beautiful things to see and a different way of life than what you see in "the States" as the pucaricans like to call the U.S. of A. I will be posting a couple of pictures a day for the next week or so or you could just go to my Flickr stream and check them all out. Either way. I will give you tidbits on the trip per post. First tidbit: Old San Juan is gorgeous and if you ever visit make sure and go to Parque De Las Palomas or Pigeon Park. Very cool. Also check out La Perla from the safety of the city gates. Do not walk in... it is a hot spot for drug activity and is dangerous for tourists.

We disrupt this program..........

because I am headed to Puerto Rico!!!!! Who's jealous, who's jealous? Come on, show of hands!! No time to update the blog because I will soon be wandering the streets of Old San Juan, eating mofongo on the beach, swimming in some delightful waterfalls in the rainforest, and honking the rental cars horn every time I go around a pin-tight curve up in the mountains so no locals will knock me off the mountainside. Have fun friends and stayed tuned for some bad ass pictures of landscapes, food,fun, and a whole lot else. AdiĆ³s!

Did you see the schmap widget on the sidebar? Basically it's there because they asked me if they could use a photo of mine in their guide. My photo is under the Yellow River Game Ranch link. It's of a little squirrel eating that I took when I went there with Kim, Ben, Shawna, Hayleigh, and Hannah about 1 1/2 years ago. The people with Schmap were nice enough to ask my permission to steal my photo from flickr and I was glad to oblige. It is one of my fave's and I took it with my Nikon N70 film camera. As y'all know I now have a Nikon D80 digital which means instant gratification- I love it- though I miss the days of being suprised by what I took.

The B's knees

As you can see the dogs are done for. Middle of the day and they are pooped. Who knew walking around the block or 15 would wear them out this much. Had I known, I might do this everyday. As it stands now, I still might think we shall hit up the dog park during the week and save the long walks forthe weekend. Speaking of done for, I looked like this Saturday morning. Too much of god's nectar was running through my body for me to feel very good. I think I took about 3 naps Saturday and did little in between. I did have a fantastic meal at M&T's though. That boy can grill like nobodys bidness. The dogs came with and tore it up with Sauly boy. There was some heavy playing going along with heavy breathing and heavy snorting- sounds like a bad porn doesn't it. Nope just dogs being dogs. I'll give y'all more fun, random stuff tomorrow but I am wiped today.
