Happy Valentines Day everyone!
This morning finds me still reeling from what is starting to feel like an upcoming ear infection! Sunday found me doing something I never do....tour bus! All told it was actually worth it just to be able see other neighborhoods. And after the tour bus Ken, the Canadian and I wandered to the Latin American Tower. It's 43 stories with a bar/restaurant on the 42nd with sweeping city views. Lunch and beers was expensive but worth every peso.
Ahhhh the bullfight I took the metro out then a libre taxi..which isnt recommended to plaza del toros. Since this was a first for me I decided on a cheap full sun ticket for 75 pesos. Am glad i did. I happened upon a group that loves bullfights. Its an every Sunday event for theses ladies and gentlemen of Porra de Alcohol. And as a gringo i stuck out like a sore thumb, but was soon showered with friendly ribbing and offers from everyones bota bag. The folks from this association were not only friendly but invited me to scream obscenities about other sections mothers with them! Of course this is all in good fun. Needless to
A unique building
A bizarre shape for an office building.
say after a few Victoria's and way too much wine my screaming along got the most of me and my voice 2 days post...still hasnt recovered! But the experience I wouldn't trade for anything. So to El Groupo Porra De Alcohol thank you for a wonderful evening and i hope to be back this sunday with pictures for your site and a Cuban Esplendido for Miguel.
So will close this now and upload lots of pictures some of which are self explanatory...so i won't annotate most.
