Posting from iPhone

Because my internet connection is so spotty, I'm trying a blog post with my iPhone.

Wow! It worked! But there are ads right on the posting page! Posting with my MacBook requires an Internet connection. All the iPhone needs is a phone connection. Now....if I could just talk my posts using Google's talk facility instead of using this awkward finger tap keyboard!

Gus Gus Restaurant
The Gus Gus [pronounced "Goose Goose"], is just across the street from my hotel Costa de Oro. And....Gus Gus has a reputation as the best restaurant in Mazatlan! When they open at 7am, I think I'll give them a try.

iPhone photos
When I take a pic with my iPhone, they disappear?! Where do they go? I don't have a clue! I would like to:
  • Take a pic with iPhone
  • Edit that pic with Picasa
  • Publish the pic with Blogger
Also, for some reason that I have not been able to fathom, when I do find a pic often there are a zillion copies which appear identical to me. Why? One pic is all I took. One pic is all I wanted.

9am -Gus Gus breakfast
Took me longer than I figured to get to Gus Gus. I'm here at 9am. Ordered a nice omelette. Cheese, ham and bacon. Coffee. Real OJ.

Gus Gus is an outdoor restaurant. Very nice. Tables mostly under tall trees. Hardly any customers at this time in the morning. Only three tables filled. When I ate here last nite, Gus Gus was loaded!

Gus Gus has a fast internet connection. I asked my waiter for the contraseƱa [password in English]. The password is "SAVETHETACO", all caps.


Tourists in Mazatlan
Yesterday evening, the five of us were in Bill and Carol's car for a tour down the main boulevard in Mazatlan. Bill commented, "Less than 20% of tourists here in Mazatlan are from Canada. All the rest are Mexican tourists! No tourists from the USA."

I believe that Bill hit on something. Persons from the USA after 911 became fearful of Mexico. And now, US government action is driving the middle class into poverty.

Interesting facts. Mexicans can always find a job when they live in Mexico. Not so when they move to the USA. Both Americans and Mexicans have a hard time getting work in the USA. And in the USA, many available jobs don't even pay your rent.

11:45am - Ocean side at Costa de Oro Hotel
After a very leisurely breakfast at Gus Gus, I walked across the boulevard to my hotel, changed into short pants and T-shirt, and am now at the hotel oceanside restaurant.

Of course, it is lovely here. A magnificent heavenly place. I am sooooo fortunate to be able to be here. Maybe when I figure out my iPhone pic challenge, I will be able to show you some pics of the beach!

Pic of me and my Fat Fish ribs
I could NOT eat the entire slab!

Note: This pic of me and the ribs was taken Thursday evening.

Could you eat all these ribs?

  2. George, I just wanted to check in and thank you for inspiring me to be a full-time solo RVer. I've been enjoying the life now for almost two years. Though I am sad that Ms. T is gone and that you are no longer an RV vagabonder, your fascinating blogs sustained me with adventures for many years. Thank you so much! And God bless! --Pat

  4. George, I'm glad you're posting again regularly. I remember your past adventures in Mexico. Those were fun days. One day, I would like to try the rv lifestyle myself and that would be thanks to you. Take care my friend.

  5. It's the same in Canada lots of unemployed and most the jobs that are available don't provide enough income for basic needs. What has happened to our countries? The rich are becoming extremely wealthy and the poor extremely poor. Many of our aboriginal people are living in third world conditions not even clean water to drink.

    1. Hi Sheila,

      Things do NOT go one direction forever, Sheila. Soon, when we least expect it, the fortunes of the super rich will plunge.

      And then, the working people will rise again to take back their lost position in the middle class. But the people must first rise up, become revolutionary, and force the powers that be out from their place on high and cast them out!

      Our time will come!

  8. Yep, this is Mexico's moment and the country is growing by leaps and bounds. Like you said though, nothing is forever. I think it is all cyclical and in 25 more years will take a change. Who knows. I hope I'm round to see all these wonderful changes. Glad to see you're back in Mexico. It misses you a lot.

    1. Hi Living BDM,
      Thank you for your kind words!

      I am sooooo happy to be visiting Mexico with my good friends, Bill and Carol. Although I am not RVing anymore, flying down to Mexico is a good time too!

  9. Glad to see you back in Mexico, Jorge. Seems like old times. Hearing you talk about your iPhone reminds me of Little Mavicita. I always thought personalizing your devices was one of the cleverest ideas in blogging. Many have tried but you were the best. Can't wait to hear more.

  10. George, you have done a wonderful job of adapting in this life. Love your Mexico blogs again. Have a wonderful trip. Remember when you were a kid and listened to radio programs at night? Well I am using my imagination on your trip,as to how your environment must look !
