Where I spent last week

For security reasons, I couldn't say where I was the whole of last week..

Well..now I'm in the Hotel lobby waiting for my driver to take me to the airport..going home. finally...

I spent a wonderfull week in Vina Del Mar, in Chile...

Chilenos are really really very nice polite people and seem to have their act together...

I was treated like a king, and everyone was very nice...I stayed in a small city called Vina Del Mar, and highly recommend for thise seeking a quiet different vacation ground..the town is very clean and organized, a mere 1 hour drive from Santiago, and to be honest..doesn't stay behind any Southern European riviera city or even any other sea side European city..It's in fact very much the same..

Flew in with Delta (what a nice airline they have become, and have a funny safety video with a woman I haven't figured out if she's pretty or not...go to youtube and search Delat Safety video..you know what I mean)..but sure is sexy...

Anyway, Vina Del Mar..yes..top of the list for me...I willl return here several times as I was awarded a few contracts...

See it here on GE..





And I spent many many hours walking around this marina here, where I was able to stay in touch with the sea




Next week I will start cruising again for a few weeks with the wife and kids, (starting to prepare the wife for the sailing alone thing with Fred to prepare for the Madeira crossing)...and we are slowly sailing up the Portuguese coast to bring the boat home..she will do most of the boat handling for training....so I will log off now, and say farewell to my friends here..so long buddies... as usual, it is allwawys a pleasure interacting with you guys...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Just youtubed the video...your right, she is sexy, but I think its her cheek bones or something, too much, here I am confused as normal.

Did you get to consume some Chilean wine?

Cheers,

She has a touch of what I call "the man jaw", and a mouth that looks like it could circumsize a horse, or to stay on topic, used as a seacock plug. It made me think of "The Joker" in the Batman movies.

Man jaw is why I don't find the U.S. actress Jennifer Aniston attractive: you could dig a trench with that face.

Boa sorte, Alex. Give my best wishes to your son and wife on getting more solo sailing time heading to windward!

She is not classically beautiful but rather exotic. I don't find that jaw line manly but certain crude phrases related to her mouth and trailer hitches come to mind. I suspect that, in person, she is a consistent head-turner. I could think of many worse things to contemplate or rest my gaze upon. (and the lack of Canadian competition makes her much more accessible, too!!!)

Off course I drank Chilean wine...and they have some good stuff too...

Unfortunately been influenced by Spanish and French vines...but none the less excellent..

Tried 8 different brands in the days I was here...oddly didn't care much for the reds....off course, being Portuguese, no one makes wine like a good Trincadeira grape...but..in all excellent wines....

I am returning here soon...

Did you see the girl In Delta??? odd isn't it....she's kinda weird too...maybe too much botox or plastic surgery


My flihgt leave in 1.5 hours...

i think her mouth is a bit too wide and it throws off her whole face. reminds me of the alien movies. i can just picture a little set of teeth coming out at you.

You guys must all be hanging around with models or something. I don't see a damn thing wrong with that face. Guess it's one of those "eye of the beholder" things.

Personally, I would be holding her with out a second's thought.

Uh oh. the wife is coming....crap...

We get a pretty decent selection of Chilean wines at our local central market and I agree, what I've tried has been pretty good for the price.

Thanks for the report! Any sailing going on there?
