Fly home day

Well, I will not be flying "all-the-way-home." Today I will be flying from Mazatlan to Tijuana on Volaris Airlines. After using Cross Border Xpress [CBX], I'll likely use a local taxi to take me all the way home to my Guava Gardens apartment.

Enjoying strange things
From comparing what I get a kick out of doing with what others like to do, I believe that I enjoy strange things. Like going thru airport inspection, for example. It's true! I like to observe what goes on there.

While I am in airport inspection, I keep my eyes wide open, and my mouth closed. I won't have trouble with the inspection people if I am quiet.

What really is funny to me during inspection, is to see passengers hassling inspectors. Bad move! But I like to watch.

Flight rules?
During my Volaris Airlines flight going south to Mazatlan last week, I was seated in the front of the plane. I was very surprised to view one of the plane's passenger attendants open the cockpit door, and go inside to do something for the pilots. She did not knock on that door or unlock it! Just went in. Blew me away!

8am - Leisure is the plan
I'm in my hotel room, about to take a hot shower. Frank Sinatra is singing non-stop from my JBL bluetooth speaker! Today is nothing but leisure.

I've got this hotel room until 12:30pm. Then, I don't need to get to the airport until 4pm to make the 5:35pm flight boarding time.

The shower in my hotel room is huge! I cannot even reach the hot/cold water knobs from outside of the shower. It's necessary to go inside the shower, stand alongside those knobs, then adjust the hot water the way that I like it. There's a ton of water pressure here! Terrific!

Later this morning, I'll likely go out for a little breakfast. But I'll go slow, not fast.

Two things to read today:
"All The Way To Argentina", by Bill and Carol Sirimarco. Yes, these are the same Bill and Carol that I came to Mazatlan to visit! This is the story of Bill and Carol's family when they were very young and journeyed in their motorhome from Los Angeles,  California to Argentina. Click [here] to buy.

I'm also reading a magazine story about Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. Remember when I spent a magical month in Guatemala in March, 2012? My imagination returns to Lake Atitlán often.

Stumbled on to David
I spent some time this morning, updating the HTML code of my blog posts for March, 2012. That's when I stumbled on a post about my son, David.

It is a fact of my life, that I would have forgotten nearly everything about my RVing years, if it were not for my own blog. Thank God for my blog!

2pm - Mazatlan Airport!
Well, it's only 2pm and I am at the Mazatlan Airport. I ordered a CocaCola, a glass of ice and a straw from the Medas Bar in order to buy my way into a table and chair. Asi es la vida, verdad?

After I check-in my flight bag at the Volaris Airline desk, I will be able to go thru inspection to the waiting area upstairs. But check-in is not before 4pm. Until then, I am very comfortable here at  the Medas Bar.

My daughter Johana texted me!
You may know that I have two children. My oldest, David, died in 2010. David and I were close, and I miss him sooooo much!

My youngest is my daughter, Johana. The two of us have always had a terribly challenged relationship. However, just this afternoon we exchanged text messages! Isn't that fantastic?! I am sooooo happy! :)

5pm - I fell down
There is a Carl's Jr at the Mazatlan Airport. It is inside the boarding area waiting room. I was paying for a Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich when I dropped some money on the floor. When I bent down to pick up the money, I fell over backward!

I will tell you this. I am an extremely talented faller. I have fallen many times, and always roll with the fall. This fall was the same. I rolled onto my back. Smooth as could be.

All around me, the young people were shocked! I could see the worry on their faces. Several reached out for me and helped me back on my feet. Of course I thanked them all and hoped that they were not worried for me.

The Honey Mustard Chicken sandwich hit the spot!

  1. Regarding the cockpit door, we don't have the same fears in Mexico as in other countries. Everyone likes us :)

    3. Hi Kevin,

      Wonderful observation, Kevin.

      Do you believe Americans could learn something important from this observation?

  2. Oh George, I am so sorry to read about your fall. Hopefully a long soak in your tub at home will ease any pain.
