Where I've Been

    Prev Next

    I've been out of the country for the last half of December. During the highlight of my vacation I was here (my favorite place on the planet... the hammocks at Rasta's (formerly Bob's Marley Bar) on the southeastern tip of Cozumel Island, Quintana Roo (Mexican Riviera). This outdoor bar on the beach has no electricity but a car stereo blasts reggae music, you can get margaritas (on the rocks only), a few types of beer, nachos and quesadillas made in toaster ovens, and as laid-back a vibe as you could ever imagine.

    I have about 6gb of photos to sort through and process, and post here. This process is made more difficult by the death of my laptop on day 1 of the vacation (so my download workflow is busted); otherwise I had planned to upload photos day by day, or at least every few days.

    But in any case... while the northwestern US was slammed by storms, and my home was out of power for 7 days and lost its water heater and had a gas leak, I was in the position above.

    Life does most certainly not suck. Even coming back to work isn't sooo bad.

    Merry Christmas, all.

      Dude! You totally missed all the fun in North Bend. Wouldn't you rather be here in a black out for five days (or more) in 30 degree weather? Darn it, I know you're disappointed!

      I saw the news on CNN International when we were there, and I decided that the best way to respond would be with another mojito and a barefoot walk along the beach.

      I stand by that decision :)
