"But why not?", "But you're pretty, I don't understand why not".
They may as well say "Are you retarded?"
So I sat and laughed at everyone else instead. I'm really going to miss this sport. Where else can you go to watch a couple of short, fat dudes in their 40s tossing each other around a ring, to then have one of them held down and have his head shaved. Pure entertainment I tells ya!

Think I even got a smile out of him...

I finally arrived in my plant paradise. Jardin Botanico in San Miguel de Allende. It's everything I ever wanted to see from Mexican wilderness, well...a good start anyway.
There'd been some great conservation efforts of the wetland, and the birds were actually great to watch (they normally do NOTHING for me). I saw the tiniest honeyeater darting all around...so I chased him!
The great thing about these cacti is that they're edible too (nopales). Packed with nutrients too apparently..my new best friend here methinks (especially as a vegetarian). A what? You want some cheese?
Still too shy to take photos of strangers, I settle for their backs (en sectreto). Only the Mexican women that day were blessed with butterflies gracing their bodies with a fluttering visit.
Lucky for us we didn't have to wak all the way to the bottom of the track, I doubt I'd be here today had we have had to climb the incline again. For some reason I never thought to slowly aclimatise to an altitude of 3500m. Lucky for me I was having troubles breathing already huh? Damn 38 hours of aircon in transit over here (cough cough).
These butterflies were floating just like leaves, and I was guessing that those already dead on the ground were the men, shagged to death by the chicas, never to make the journey north to Canada. Tough life!
