Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Politically Correct Mexico

Just some random shots from Southern Baja.









Anyone remember the Frito commercial with the little Mexican guy singing, "Ey yi yi yi, I am the Frito Bandido"?

I believe Frito-Lay was asked to take that off the air.

Wonder what Frito-Lay would think of these...

Duuno but I tell you who I do feel sorry for, us bimbos!

That kid's got great hair.

'Bimbo' in Japanese means 'poor bastard', financially-wise.

I was thinking the same thing M, it's a double whammy.

We would always joke that we knew we were back in Mexico because we would see Bimbo bread and LaLa milk.

So I could call myself a "bimbo" and be correct in Japanese... just not in USAese...

Wow! La Paz sure has changed since I was last there. I think that was in the spring of '95. I don't remember Pepina Rae and Lena stopping there on the way down from San Carlos, but I do remember that my shortest marriage was just about to end at that time......

Well Kirb, we remember the trip down from San Carlos. We did not go to LaPaz. We sail down from San Carlos and primarily stayed on the mainland side. Info for others...the marriage was 40 days and 40 nights with the 40th night in Mazatlan harbor. Not a pleasant memory for any of us. By the way, it was the Spring of '96.

Well that's an interesting tangent!
Are you saying the other half of that doomed marriage was a bimbo or the marriage was politically incorrect?
I'll go with just plain old incorrect.
Kirby, you were probably just trying to block out those 40 days...
Thank GOD you met Suzie!
