PC Doctor Receipt

In case you missed it, here is a link to Part One of this saga. Broke-ass computer in tow, we pulled into Neily around lunchtime. The PC Doctor wasn’t hard to find, right across the street from the largest grocery store in town on the main drag. We stumbled into what looked like a pretty … Read more

A dead Lenovo in Costa Rica

It was Saturday morning in the Costa Rican jungle. There were monkeys hooting all around us, the coffee was fresh and hot, an empty beach was just sitting there waiting for us about a hundred paces away, and we had nothing planned. This probably sounds more or less like a description of an idyllic paradise. … Read more

Its capital, Oaxaca de Juarez (often simply called Oaxaca), was … Read more

Ian After Tijuana

After the whole tourist card debacle we got ourselves into, last Thursday night we pulled into Ensenada after dark and found a nice little hotel on the south side of town.

Let us examine, for a moment, the factors leading to this: Power to the town is rationed. As with many things in an isolated locale, luxuries like electricity and water … Read more

Maya in Montana

We had a rough trip to the vet this morning.  Maya hates that place and made it very clear by lunging, barking, snarling, and attempting to bite, even after they put the muzzle on her.  We hate going too, primarily because of those exact behaviors, but the hundreds of dollars we drop each time doesn’t … Read more
