Translation for 140 languages by ALS
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.
Explore. Dream. Discover
---Mark Twain


I felt no earthquake (Vallarta)

No, no earthquake rumbled my little slice of paradise here in Pto Vallarta. Only Mexican tourists from Guadalajara and loud Banda music with bands in awful, clownish uniforms!

On Saturday night, though, I was called "Nigger!" by a truckload of (drunk) Mexicans. I gather they were drunk because getting smashed is the only apparent goal for every national who flocks here for Semana Santa (Holy Week); that and getting laid, I suppose.  At any rate, no translation was necessary. They shouted it in English.

Pto Vallarta: still free of earthquakes but not racism.
