When in Mexico

May 11, 2016

Don’t spell Mexico with a j. Only spanish people spell it Mejico, and nobody likes them or their fancy accents.

When in Mexico, at least when in Mexicali don’t eat any type of asian food. Despite having the largest ethnic Chinese population of any city in Mexico, the asian (Chinese, Japanese, or fusion) food is terribly disappointing. We’ve had 3 chinese places and 2 sushi/fusion places and they were all garbage. I honestly think I could open a Chinese restaurant in Mexicali and single handedly redefine “good” Chinese food for a 1/2 million people.

When in Mexico do eat tacos from a taco stand. You can taste the richness of the culture(probably lard) in every bite and for $5 you can get 4 or 5 tacos decent sized tacos and a drink. Try and get a taco stand that has a front door and windows though. I guess that would make it a taco restaurant, but just barely.

When in Mexico do let the site manager buy you lunch everyday (just not the local Chinese restaurant).

When in Mexico, get the huevos rancheras.

When in Mexico, eat brazilian bbq. It’s 1/2 the cost of what it is in the US.

When in Mexico, don’t assume people will stop at redlights. There are lots of cops in the city and people generally obey the signals, but there are a lot of people who run lights.

When in Mexico, don’t be surprised by the many levels of buearacracy that result in an endless number of delays. Don’t be surprised when no one apologizes for the delays or seems surprised that you’re upset about the delays.

 

 

 

It’s not what it used to be

When you’re perusing craigslist and people keep saying their truck is low miles and you click thru and it turns out low miles is 172k. That’s Toyota truck life.

i spent last night in taoyuan airport on my way to Indonesia for work. Wifi was good and there were lots of people spending the night so it wasn’t creepy either. Flight to Indonesia was only a little late and the food was decent. Bad news is EVA’s selection of in flight entertainment isn’t that great and I think i’ve watched all the movies i’m going to want to watch. What to do on the way back?

Is this song about Kristen Stewart? Reminds me of Grimes, but only if Grimes had a little Janet Jackson in her.

Every year around thanksgiving I get a cold. Everyone has their own theory, but i’m pretty sure the one constant is every year i’m up late traveling the day before thanksgiving, up late thanksgiving, and then have to turn around and drive back home late. Naturally my immune system isn’t what it could be, but what are you gonna do? I really look forward to thanksgiving at my cousins. It’s probably top 3 holidays on my social calendar every year from now until forever.

I still love pop music. +1 for nice abs too. Tinashe’s verse is kinda meh, but the chorus is just so catchy.

Jim’s Auto Sales failing in all the ways.

2008 Ford Ranger which sold for probably 15-17k new in 2008 is somehow still worth $16k in 2014? Not a 4×4, doesn’t have the big V-6, nothing. Just full on sucker pricing. C’mon Son.

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
