Hey Friends,

For those of you who don't know that I am an amateur mountaineer, start paying attention! What the hell have you been doing when I was telling you about it? Hmm? 

Well, you'll have to ask me about the time Kelly Flynn and I got stuck on a mountain and I ate dog food (I really just wanted to know what it tastes like, but whenever I tell the story it always sounds like I was starving and I ate my dogs stash, but no, I was just curious). 

Well two or three weeks ago I attempted to climb Mt. Baker with two of my favorite people in the whole world: Kylan and Kelly. To make a long story short, we made it to base camp and then the day before we planned to summit, a fucking whopper wind storm flattened us. All told, there were nine in our party. The wind pummeled the tent Kylan and I were in, and the one two other people were in. The wind also ripped a backpack out of the hands of a third person (it contained his sleeping bag, digital camera, etc.) and blew it over the side of a cliff, never to be seen again. The sideways frozen rain was fun, but the wind wasn't kind to us at all. So we called the trip off. Better luck next time. I included some pictures and a short vid and a link to some more pictures. 

PLEASE STAY TUNED. I love all you people so much. Sorry I haven't been blogging much, but I am terribly busy doing nothing. Just kidding. I haven't been blogging because I have been spending days and nights buying a car for myself, another one for Katie, finding an apartment, and moving my stuff. I finally finished all the tasks except the last one and that should be done tomorrow. 

SO, what you have to look forward to:

     1. I have tons of stuff to say about Massachusetts.
     2. I am visiting Katie on Matinicus Rock from Saturday the 30th to Wednesday the 4th. I'll post pictures and other cool stuff.
     3. Other things. . . I guess.

Ever wonder what happens to one after one spends two days wandering around Mexico Shity?? This. . .
Confusion
I'm not sure what exactly has happened here, but as you can see, something has happened. I was trying to smile. I am not sure if I am capable of smiling anymore.

Today, I went to the castle where Maximillian used to live. When he was alive. It is ridiculously extravagant. Also, it sits atop a big hill which presents a wicked view of the city. If you look at the picture and get disappointed because you can't see past the smog, it's just more of the same.



Neato huh? Well, That's enough for now. To come: 1. Boy shitting on sidewalk, 7 cops directing traffic, etc.

Preview:

I went to Teotihuacan yesterday and on my way back I took a wrong turn. As I was finding my way I saw a boy drop drawers and poop right in the middle of the sidewalk. So far, the most shocking thing about this city is how similar it is to the United States. For example, often I think "Hey, there is an American, I'll go say hi." But no, they aren't Americans at all! Surprise!

Having said that, there are definitely a few things that are very different. One, there are street vendors everywhere. EVERYWHERE!! On the bus, on the street, in the restaurants (yesterday some fool came into a restaurant where Vince and I were eating and played a lulaby <yarg!> for us, and then asked for money). Two, there is trash everywhere. This is definitely NOT COOL. For example, I was walking down the street when I saw a staircase leading a few steps down to a door. No one had used this door for some time because the space that was between the staircase and the door was full of trash. Sick! Third, people do drive like maniacs. It is unsafe. MORE TO COME!!

Hey Kids! This is my first bog ever!! I have never bogged before. Can you believe that? Do I live in a cave or what?

Well, not everyone bogs you know! I can name at least one other person who has never bogged before in his life! His name is Indiana. Indiana Jones. He's a real person.

I am currently in Mexico City (a.k.a. Mexico Shity, a.k.a. The Big Taco) hanging out with my buddy Vince from High School. He teaches chemistry and "life lessons" to rich kids from the Big Taco. I figured this would be as good a time as any to start bogging. I hope you like it!

I visited the second biggest pyramid in the world. It was bitchin. More details to come. . .
