I got back from New Orleans last night. Daniel “catarrin” Jaramillo, Alejandro “chaparro” del Castillo, Luis “Brody” Navarro, Andres “Andy Boy” Marcos and myself rented Dolores “Lolita” Chrysler and spent 4 unforgetable days (although some of us already forgot some parts of the trip due to the extreme circumstances). Also, Anders Meisters, Claudia and Paula Lorente, Jimmy and Jeremy joined us some of the time.
New Orleans is a lot of fun. The drive is long but Lolita’s DVD player and the “Monterrey Campe�n Clausura 2003” Collector’s DVD helped make it more enjoyable. Bourbon street is amazing, a cross between Austin’s 6th street, Amsterdam’s Red Light District and a giant toilet. Cajun and Creole food are great. You can listen to great live jazz all over the place… you get the picture.
I’ll post some photographs of the trip tonight or tomorrow.
UPDATE [July 17]: I have uploaded the pictures now! Two albums: this one and this one. I’m still missing photos from Claudia and Jimmy.
UPDATE [April 12 2007]: Fixed links.
I uploaded lots of photos from last weekend’s trip to Monterrey.
Jave’s house before Becky’s party
At the rancho
At Moi’s graduation party
If you are not in the pictures, or you want to complain that somebody is in LOTS of pictures… it’s not my fault. All photos were taken by Debbie or Jacobo. Basically, if it looks like the picture was taken from below… it was Debbie. All photos of buffet tables, flowers and decorations taken by Jacobo were censored. Sorry.
I have uploaded 3 new albums.
One is from the AEPI party last week.
The other one is from a barbecue we had at Chai’s place some time ago.
Last but not least, a few pictures we took in Mexico last weekend on my trip to Monterrey.
As usual, I’ll remove the albums some time in the near future so save anything you want. Don’t forget to post your comments. Also, if you want, email me for higher quality versions of the photographs.
I went to Monterrey for Rosh Hashana. Yossy, Tomer and Carlos came with me. Funny to take an israeli to Mexico and all he gets to eat is Yiddish food (*very* good Yiddish food). Yossy had his first gefilte fish and he liked it.
All in all a very good start for a new year.
Saturday night I drove to San Antonio to meet with my uncles David, Ruthy, Rujele, Isi and my cousins Jacobo, Rachelle, Joseph, Taly, Julieta, Rebeca, Rafa, Jacobo, Karen, Eduardo and Alex (phew)… We went to Sea World yesterday. It took 1 hour and 20 minutes from the gate to the first rollercoaster, it’s hard to move so many people around. Nice to see them all, it’s been over two years since I saw some of them.
