Allie's Time in Mazatlan

I dropped our daughter Allie off at the Mazatlan Airport after a two week stay here with us.  I hadn't driven the truck in six weeks so it was good to start it up and let it run for the hour round trip.  I do not like driving on the back streets here though.   The neighborhoods are very poor once you get a mile east of the ocean, and the roads are poorly maintained.  Some potholes are big enough to swallow up a small pickup truck.  And traffic is busy with motorcycles and bicycles darting in and out of traffic, pedestrians walking across the road, without looking, and cars occasionally passing on the right shoulder where there simply doesn't seem like there's enough room to get by.  As a result, I saw a lot of vehicles with bent mirrors, dents and scratches. Anyway, I think Allie had a good time hanging out with her elderly parents.

Drinking with Duey

Before coming to Mazatlan, I watched a number of youtube videos to prepare for the trip.  Most of the videos were fluff productions, detailing tourist highlights.  One minimalist channel was by a retired Canadian named Dwight Burditt (Duey) who makes videos while taking long walks on the streets of Mazatlan.  

I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Duey over beers at Edgar's Bar twice over the last week.  He's a retired air traffic controller, met and married a Mexican dessert chef, Lupita, and loves his beer.  He's about as down-to-earth as they come.

My mother used an expression for people like Duey: "Salt of the Earth."
