Mis Estimados Compadres,
Amigos, Amigas, Compañeros y Compañeras:
Now. Here. This . Ahora. Aquí. Esta.In my last travelogue blog I mention that there was a lot of banks, real estate agencies
and restaurants in San Miguel - more than a city of this size should have.... That is because San Miguel is a place where the Drug Cartel guys like to come to launder their money - banks and real estate - many Mexicans prefer to buy real estate rather than put their money into bank accounts - although buying shares in Mexican Companies and buying Mexican Corporate Bonds is also becoming more popular.... And the Drug Lords have to eat when they are in town, San Miguel, laundering their money - so there is a lot of restaurants  - actually the Drug Lords may also be buying up some of the restaurants... There is also a lot of small hotels and "bed and breakfast" places around San Miguel - a lot!!!!!.. Hat stores are quite common because most people wear hats in San Miguel because of the Sun.... When I was a kid - there use to be a lot of hat stores around then, because most men wore hats at that time - it was the style...The hat stores were called "Haberdashers"... The hats men wore than were called "Fedoras".. My dad would buy two or three new hats, Fedoras, every year... Either it was my dad or my mother that made a big deal out of it every time that he bought a new hat (Fedora).... But times change... When President Kennedy did not wear a hat - all of the men in North America stopped wearing hats and all of the Haberdasher Stores eventually went out of business - The Haberdasher Store Owners must have hated President Kennedy.. And when President Kennedy was shot - it was too late - the hat styles had changed - the Haberdasher Store Owners had wasted their money on putting a hit out on President Kennedy - it was the Haberdasher Store Owners that had President Kennedy shot - not the Communists - that was just their cover story....  Anyway times change - hat styles change 
- but people do not change...

My daughter, Jill, who lives in Toronto, is in the Dominican Republic this week with her family,
Pete and my 3 year old grandson, Jack.  My 3 year old grandson, Jack, had to get a passport for the trip just like everyone else...
My son Alexander and his family, Lisa and my grandchildren, Lucas and Alana who live in Calgary, have just got back from a vacation in San Diego, California... They all have passports too..
Everyone has a passport now and that means that they can come to Mexico if and when they want to..  I can hardly wait for that to happen...
My son Alexander has just changed his job, and is now working for a Chinese Communist Oil Company that is in Calgary exploiting Canada's oil resources - I am hoping that the Chinese Communists do not take all of Canada's oil and leave us Canadians with nothing - no oil...
 I do not trust those Chinese Communist Bastards... In fact, I do not know if I can trust my son now, or anymore... I am not sure whose side he is on anymore..... but at least he still has a Canadian Passport...
Alexander (in Mexico, it is Alejondro), I have been told is the most common name in the world..
It is a very common name in Mexico and in all of Latin America..  It is a very common name in all of Southern Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey), it is a very common name in all of North Africa, the Middle East, Northern India - it is a very common name where ever Alexander the Great had conquered the land..... ........   

Abstract art communicates with the unconscious mind...

Next is an art exhibit at the library, the Biblioteca, that I have taken pictures of. ... 
I like and prefer abstract art to more conventional art...
They say that abstract art speaks to the unconscious mind..
Makes me wonder what is going on in my unconscious mind....
See what it says to your unconscience mind - but of course your conscience mind
will not know what it is saying to your unconscience mind...

See if you can tell which paintings that I have put in upside down or sideways,
just to screw you up.....If you are a real artist, you will be able to tell
which paintings that I have put in upside down or sideways just to screw you up... 

I have put in 3 or 4 shots of some of the paintings from different angles, because some pictures changes their appearances when you look at them from different angles.... - not sure how well
that shows up in the photo's.......

To enlarge any picture of a painting to full size, double clip on it...
To see the paintings as a slide show - go to the bottom of this page and click on slideshow....





Viva La Mexico
Hasta La Viva
