A Second Sunday For the Midwestern Rube

The great miracle is that in the 18 hours after Saturday evening's storm only ~4 kg of water found egress from the roof pool into my bed, still less onto the floor next to my bed, and none to my knowledge into any other bed. For a roof pitched like a bowl, this is doesn't seem to be too shabby of a performance, but I have my doubts about this roof's survival for timelines  greater than 2 years. Thanks to the quirks of booking late in 8 nights I will have a bed into a different room less likely to be an eventual epicenter of a crashing.

Poor Playa de los Pocitos, it does not have a wall to hold back the beatings.

How windy was your day?

Hello Mister Boat.


  1. A tremendous lesson on humility and the imporance of actual travel has been that my experience with the Spanish language so far evidently¬† prepared me to understand the Mexicans back home and the Columbians here. The longer I am here, the more I am disabused of the notion I could have meaningfully prepared more for this adventure back home by doing anything other than arriving here sooner.
