I first wrote to you about this phenomenon in my January 4th blog post titled:
Yesterday evening, here in Mazatlan, I used the "Just one thing!" concept when I danced with those Hawaiian girls at the Gus Gus restaurant. Since I now believe that I am able to do anything I wish and be successful, why should I be concerned about dancing like that? Or what the people in the restaurant think?
Again I used "Just one thing!" when I told the hotel about the hammering noise in my room. Before "Just one thing!", I was fearful of what others would think about me. Fearful of being judged.
Right now I am inside my new hotel room. It is sooooo quiet here! I am able to hear the ocean waves in the distance, landing on the shore. All because of "Just one thing!"
I guess old George is definitely NOT too old to learn new stuff!
Oh! I didn't tell you about that. When I arrived in the airport taxi at Margaritas Hotel yesterday evening, the receptionist calmly told me that the hotel was closed! Wow! "What happened to my hotel reservation?", I asked. She told me, "You have a room at Costa de Oro Hotel across the street."
This is how Mexico is! The culture here is hugely different than the USA culture. The Margaritas Hotel did not bother to email me about my hotel booking change. Since the people of Mexico don't get upset about changes [like we Americans do], then it is not necessary to send me an email about the reservation change! I guess that the hotel people figured that I would find out about the change when I arrived.
Carol and Bill coming
A text message arrived from Carol and Bill asking me to phone them. They had phoned me while I was eating at Gus Gus restaurant, but I wasn't carrying iPhone.
We made a breakfast date for this morning. Carol and Bill are picking me up at Costa de Oro Hotel at 9:30am.
I've spent several hours here in Mazatlan trying to figure out how to get an iPhone photo edited with Picasa, then uploaded to my blog.
I am still trying to get this under my belt. I believe the problem has to do with very poor connectivity to the internet.
Wow! Finally got it! However, I spent so much time on the upload process, that I don't know how I did it!
