去墨西哥碌地 (2)

After taking a thrilling and speedy taxi ride on Mazatlan’s highways we arrived at Torres Mazatlan, where giant marshmallow mutants hide and wait to jump and take a bite of the faces of unsuspecting tourists. Not really, but the nice people who work there shared some giant marshmallows the size of my fist with us. Our pictures could not do it justice.

On the outside, Torres Mazatlan looked similar to hotels in Honolulu built in the 60’s.  On the inside, it still looked like that, but nicely renovated. Our traveling party had a gigantic 2br/2ba apartment, much thanks to our friends who let us tag along. The hall bathroom could easily accomodate two mahjong tables, and the bedroom held a king sized bed with ample room to move around. The kitchen and living/dining room were on the other side of the apartment with a balcony overlooking the courtyard pool and the ocean.

For the first 5 days (?) of our trip, the weather was as lousy as the apartment was wonderful. The sky was thick with clouds, winds were blowing in from the north, day time temperatures were around 65F. We were expecting warmth and sunshine but couldn’t get away from the bay area weather. The locals we talked to said the weather was very unusual too. However, with all that wind, the waves were awesome. I sat through the first morning’s time share sales pitch just staring and listening to the waves.

  1. Hi Elden, haven’t heard from you for a long time. How are you doing? Just got this website from Horton, and I really like your writing. If you have time, check out my two blogs: Museum Maximillian (http://maxptcheung.blogspot.com) on my son Daryl, and Sports Maximillian (http://sportsmaximillian.blogspot.com) on sports.
