There was much buzz yesterday ahead of winter storm Remus. As a matter of fact, the governor of North Carolina declared a state of emergency based on the forecast by The Weather Channel, which called for 5 – 8 inches of the white stuff. Personally, I didn’t believe it if the temperatures were to hold where they said, around 32 or 33. Mostly we got very heavy snow mixed with rain, yielding about MAYBE 1 inch of snow and a…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See those mountains out there? They look pretty small, don’t they? Well, I figured that they weren’t but a couple of miles away that I could easily walk to the base, or get close to see the detail. (What a rookie!). As I continued to walk and walk and walk towards them, no more detail was resolved. There was nothing but an unspoken promise that if I kept walking, I’d get there. Eventually, I gave up, realizing that they were…

This is Basilica San Albino, just outside of Las Cruces, NM. I wanted to have a look inside, but unfortunately, there was a funeral in progress; however, a man who seemed to be in-the-know, told me that the funeral would finish around 11:00 AM and that I would be able to enter the basilica and take some pictures after the services.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to accomplish a couple of things in the morning simultaneously. I’m able to have a walk that looks quite impressive because of the copious amounts of sweat that my body sheds, even though it may only be 68 degrees, as well as moisturizing my skin. The humidity level has been frequently in the mid to high 90% level! I’ve enjoyed going to the dam, too, now that I know where it is…

A frightening image.

(Translated from Spanish) Man: So, are you Cuban or Puerto Rican? Me: Neither. I’m from The United States (note, not Americano, but Estadounidense because all of North and South America are Americans). Man: I thought you were Cuban or Puerto Rican because of the color of your skin. Me: Thinking … and probably because of my killer Spanish skills! Ha! Vanessa and I were in a museum in Guanajuato, Mexico when this conversation took place. This was a nice, elderly…
