A few thoughts from Cabo San Lucas

In no particular order…

  • Terry Pratchett is a funny, funny man. And wise; his commentary on change and how people react to it is worth a post all its own, at some point in the future when I’m not blogging via a ridiculously overpriced hotel connection.
  • Ninjas — successful ones, at any rate — would never wear flip flops.
  • I have a good book you should read, that I guarantee you’ve never read. More later.
  • All sand is not created equal. The sand of Los Cabos, for example, reminds you rather constantly of its origin as pulverized, sharp rock; and that the pulverizing process itself was not particularly thorough.
  • Respect riptides.

And finally, this bit of wisdom, as we walked along the fairly ironic Lover’s Beach:
“They said they filmed part of Planet of the Apes here.”
“Who did?”
“The people I was eavesdropping on.”
“Huh. The first one, or the new one?”
“I don’t know. There’s only so much information you can get from eavesdropping.”
See you all in a few days. In the meantime, expect radio silence — my indulgences are reserved for somewhat more important things like local crafts, local food, and local beer.
