Had a great day today. Went into town to send off Michelle and get some music equipment with Mark, E and Machat. Got pulled over for running a red light, barely, and they took my license, also lost my ATM card, but cancelled it before anything happened. Then went to the music store in old town vallarta, right near the movie theatre and Naranjo (the rad restaurant). We bro'd hard with the music store and E bought a beautiful used cream colored drumset, a PA and some Euro power converters. The store has really good stuff, vintage fender's, new euro pre apms: kind of like a Mexi Cowboy Star (remember that one by Cabrillo Blvd.? Maybs?) but less cracked out. Told them about the studio and they were stoked and told me that they do all the acoustic design for the nightclubs in Vallarta and can get us any acoustic panelling that we need, also cables, mics, software, whatever. The guys names are Charly and Nacho. Then we went to Riso's, probably the best supermarket in Vallarta, where I actually found yeast and wholegrain flour for Marcin to make his French friend's mother's bread recipe. Then Erlend left his ATM card in the ATM. Called his Dad to take care of canceling it. Also went to get mark in between who I had left at the Airport to say goodbye to michelle. He had walked about 2 miles into town thinking I would see him on the way to get him. I didn't see him, but he saw me and hopped in some dude's truck, all, "Me Llamo Marco! Vamos al Aeropuerto!" He found me there and we had espresso in the new wing of the airport. Then we went back to get Machat and E. I finally figured out where that offramp is for the road that goes around the city to the old town. Very lush and tropical above the city, very Night of the Iguana.
In the end, the good outweighed the lost license and two ATM cards. Also, loving the White Boyz, quirky bunch. All down to build and cook, and make a joke, ja.
