I love Mexico City. It's a beautiful city and the people are really friendly. Even after all the Trump drama they treat visitors with respect and hospitality. With every great city comes crime but Mexico City has to be explored.
Met this little girl while we waiting to cross the street. She was cute and giggly. She ran off when the light turned and I could see she had to get somewhere. I wish her well.

This is a simple Mexican Margarita that is the best I've ever tasted. If you're ever in Mexico City go to the restaurant Fonda El Refugio. Great food, great service, great drinks. Very affordable. 


Pork with Green Chili. A great meal.

View from the rerun flight home. I hated to leave but gotta get home.

The best thing about my job is the travel and I get paid for it. I do work hard but you have to take advantage of the trip and get out. Guatemala is great country and the people are extremely friendly.

Zacapa Rum. This stuff is good enough to drink like scotch; glass, ice cube, sip.
This is Antigua a touristy town surrounded by volcanoes. That's Volcán de Agua (Volcano of Water) in the background. Or that's what our driver told us.   
An old church being restored.

Moving Forward

Lots of changes for better and worse. It's almost the end of the year and I don't know where the time went. I had some challenges in 2016 but overall it was a good year. Work has me travelling all over South and Central America so I've been busy. Didn't get to fly fish much this year but will reattack in 2017. Changes.
I took a trip to Buenos Aires. It's great city with great steak, wine, beautiful women, phenomenal architecture. I'll be back

Jr came home for Thanksgiving. We fried a turkey. I love my son so much.

Took a trip to Mexico City. Got a cool mask and ate a lot of tacos. I'll be back.

Moochie passed away in December. He was 14 years old and lived a full life. I'm glad we were able to give him a good life. He's in cat heaven sleeping, eating, pooping, and peeping. I miss him already. Love you Mooch. My son. 
The Mooches.

Went fly fishing at Fort Belvoir today. Nice hidden water that not a lot of people know about. It's close to my apartment also. Caught some fish but not a lot of pictures. Enjoy.
A great day. Sunny, not too hot, all to myself. Peaceful
Caught some of these guys. Nice fighters. This guy was big and he liked the popper.
Thanks for stopping by.

The Force

I can feel it in my bones. It's going to be a cold winter. Time to buckle down and tie flies.
