How about taking a trip in a luxurious yate with crystal bottom? A trip in this cruise costs around $5 dollars per person and will give you a lonnnng glimpse on the Acapulco Bay. You don't have to worry about wearing the life-savers: you can always sit on them and easily forget about them. This is another thrilling experience full of adrenaline; and if you are not afraid of sinking ships you will enjoy lots! It really worths the trip (if only they could go a bit faster... but they can't because the glass of the bottom can break...) Not a yate and not crystal.. but almost ;)

Flat Beetle! This car, widely known in Mexico City as Vocho is the usual view on town. Dare to travel in one if you have all your internal organs in place and you are not cardiac. I did it quit a lot and... well... my stomach has moved a little bit to the right because of that! ;) I know it is not the best pic of a Vocho, but that's the one I like the most because of the flat tire! :)

I remember the day I went to an office in a building in Bosques in Mexico City: I should go to the 9th floor. So, I waited for the elevator, jump inside, then the elevator closed its door and... to my surprise it started going down!! Later I learned that the main entrance is actually the 15th floor... That sounds like Alice in Wonderland!

las cinco del viernes

Bueno, aqui van las cinco del viernes:
1) ¿Te gusta el teatro? ¿Vas a menudo, o todo el teatro que has visto son los matrimonios de Noche de fiesta?
Me gusta mucho el teatro, en Bogota cada dos anios esta el Festival de Teatro: hay de todo para todo el mundo, teatro callejero, varias companias de teatro de todo el mundo vienen a hacer presentaciones en todos los teatros de Bogota, es fascinante. Y lo extranio mucho aqui. En Mexico tambien estuve en varias presentaciones de Danza y de teatro callejero, pero el nombre del Festival de me olvido. Durante un mes, hubo presentaciones de teatro callejero en el Zocalo, detras del Auditorio Nacional (donde queda la Escuela de Danza que es fenomenal) y en otros lugares que no me acuerdo porque no fui. Con mi presupuesto de artista tengo que hacer un esfuercini aqui para ir a alguna obra de teatro.

2) ¿Alguna vez has visto una obra que no te haya gustado nada? ¿Has salido del teatro con la sensacion que has tirado el dinero?
Lo que me ha pasado es que no he entendido bien de que se trata... ohh!! jeje, hace 10 anios en un intercambio con unas amigas del colegio, nos llevaron en Boston a ver My Fair Lady, yo tenia 15 anios y mi ingles mas bien nulo... Me acuerdo que nos quedamos dormidas... Tengo que confesar que desde ese dia comprendi que mi amor por los musicales era mas bien bajo.
3) ¿Cual es la primera obra que recuerdas haber visto? ¿Y una de las que te haya gustado mas?
Es una buena pregunta, en realidad no me acuerdo la primera vez que vi teatro... En mi colegio (el Vermont) una vez nos llevaron a un teatro en la Calle 57 con carrera 21 (en Bogota), pero no me acuerdo de la obra, y otra vez nos llevaron a un teatro en chapinero para ver I took Panama. En realidad me inclino mucho por la Danza, esa es mi pasion.

4) ¿Has llegado a irte lejos para ver una obra que sabias que no iba a venir a tu ciudad?
No recuerdo haber planeado viajar para ir a ver una obra, pero si recuerdo aprovechar un viaje para ver una obra: no se si Cirque du soleil se puede considerar teatro en estos dias, y bueno segun varios filosofos a lo mejor ni se considera arte o teatro. Pero para mi lo son, y el show de ellos que vi en las Vegas *O* es lo mejor que he visto. Profesionalismo y diversidad.

5) ¿Por que crees que va poca gente al teatro? ¿Crees que es caro?
Esa es una buena pregunta que toda la industria del arte se esta preguntando hace ya dos decadas. Por que poca gente va a teatro, conciertos de musica clasica y museos de Arte? Hay todo un estudio de audiencias que es parte de la rama de Administracion del Arte, todo radica en la mision de la compania de teatro, su ubicacion, su promocion (mercadeo) y su posicionamiento en la comunidad. En artes la oferta sobrepasa la demanda y hay que ubicar un balance. (Decirlo es tan facil, no? ) Hay una persona que recomiendo leer Victoria D. Alexander quien habla sobre la Audiencia y la funcion del Mercadeo en las Artes basado en la sociologia. Para responder la pregunta, creo que el precio en algunas ocasiones es parte del por que la gente no va a teatro. En Bogota el teatro callejero es todo un exito! (De lo que me acuerdo! A lo mejor es mas ahora!)

Well, ok, not the best photo according to composition, and sharpness, I agree... But I cannot help liking this just because of the fact of the enormous smile I had when I went back to Mexico: going back to the Vochos, the cables in the street, the smell of gasoline, the mess, the screams selling tacos... I was truly thrilled... It worth every second spent there...

The land below the smog : Bienvenido a la Ciudad de Mexico. This is the photograph that marked "Mi Regreso Triunfal" to Mexico City: after being denied boarding from Mexicana de Aviacion, I had to directly obtain an express visa from the Consul de Mexico - who repeatedly said Colombians residents in the US don't need a visa... but immigration in Mexico said we do... In the end, with all my documents ready, I was once again flying back to my 'dear' Mexico in search for love. The photos that will follow this pic will proof my entrance to the Distrito Federal and more. :)

You're Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!

by Mark Twain

With an affinity for floating down the river, you see things in black
and white. The world is strange and new to you and the more you learn about it, the less
it makes sense. You probably speak with an accent and others have a hard time
understanding you and an even harder time taking you seriously. Nevertheless, your
adventurous spirit is admirable. You really like straw hats.

Francis is about to touch my 'home town' in Florida: Fort Lauderdale.. While here in Tallahassee I am going to the supermarket to get water, batteries (which I couldn't found!), and movies at Blockbuster!! Getting ready for it, though the meteorologist from FSU afirm that the hurricane will be a Tropical Storm when it reaches my door... I cross fingers...

And in the meantime we have little evil Ivan taking shape of a tropical storm on the East Atlantic slowly moving West...

Well, I just heard of someone who does visit my blog constantly but for an unknown reason doesn't fancy leaving a comment. The purpose is visiting and I am absolutely happy to hear you do visit, and more happy to hear that you like my photographs! hurray! This picture was in New Jersey. I used to see it everyday on my way back "home" for the 5 days I visited there. One night, the light was so atracting that I just couldn't resist it. The reflection on the mirror, the way it lights everything around. It's marvelous!
