Earlier this year, I took a trip out to the Anza Mud Caves. It was fun, tight, dusty, and sand somehow managed to work its way into any and all little crevices and openings in my body. I know it sounds gross.
Here are the cross streets for getting to Anza Mud Caves… don’t tell anybody!
Entrance. Start crawling
A couple of more entrances…
This entrance actually winded a long way into the mountain and we found out afterwards it was where some guy died a few months ago climbing this area by himself…not such a smart idea.
We camped out under the stars and it was a nice cool evening. The views in the morning were nice as well.

I left Mexico City on New Years Eve to head to the Yucatan Peninsula for Valladolid, Chichen Itza, and Tulum. Remember when flying in Mexico to keep all of your valuable possessions on you always! For example, if you want to see it again, do not check it in!
I checked in my waterproof camera and after seeing it go into the conveyor belt labyrinth of thieves… I thought to myself, “hmm.. man I should have kept that on me. Oh well, I packed in WAY in the middle they won’t find it.” Ha. Haha! Upon arriving in Cancun and picking up my bag in the carousel, I checked and my camera was gone.
Dude, I wanted to fight everybody at the airport!
But we also had a bus to catch so…!@#$!^!!%^!!%$#%@$^&T&I*!!!!!
We spent the night at a crappy hostel/hotel thing… they blasted techno music until 4am and ear plugs could not keep out the constant bass.
Oh, and aside from the camera thievery, the lack of sleep on a horrible mattress, I had major food poisoning and did not eat for the rest of the trip. Yup… I did not eat for the next four days and spent every single day looking at beautiful views… and occasionally hustling myself carefully to create pico de gallo bowls if you know what I mean. Disgusting.
Anyway, it was a painful adventure that kept me on my toes…and the toilet bowl.
Here are some pictures:
I know what you’re thinking (or probably not).
How can I go to such a beautiful place and not have many pictures right? Well, must I remind you of the stolen camera and massive dysentery issues. Yup.
The best part of this trip was swimming in a cenote cave and diving down to check out the areas and seeing little turtles all around. Also, swimming in the Caribbean was a major highlight for me because henever I was swimming or floating, my stomach behaved itself really well and I did not have urges to pollute the ocean (don’t worry).
This was a great trip overall.
The updates will keep coming soon!
I went to Mexico City last year around Christmas time…and yes I have been slow to post this past year!
Here are some of the better pictures I took:
Aside from seeing things like the Zocalo and Museo de Antropologia, I took a day trip out to Teotihuacan to see the pyramids. I learned real quick at night that all of masses go down to the Zocalo and historic district at night and cause the worst human traffic jam in history. Imagine if you will driving through the 10 freeway in Los Angeles…while the Lakers are playing…and a USC football game is going on… and a Dodgers game going on all at once. That is Mexico City traffic while walking at night.
The Museum was pretty sick, you can spend an entire day there looking at old stuff and going, “wow… this stuff is really old and interesting.” That’s pretty much what I did.
Last night I watched FIFA hand out a few awards.
In addition to a sympathy Golden Ball to Messi, I watched the German Soccer Machine dance all over the field in their glorious victory. They definitely deserved their championship being the best team (by far) in the tournament. They manhandled Brazil to the point where I had to start sending text messages for the suicide hotline to my Brazilian friends.
I mean, it was so bad that I could not take an-Neymar of it…
I mean, if Neymar fracturing his vertebrae was not enough of a back breaker to Brazil, then Germany definitely came along and waltz-ed and Landler-ed all over it to make sure… nevermind, you get the point.
After doing some thinking, I’d like to contribute some awards of my own.
Here are my awards for the following…

Remember about seven years ago when the Seattle SuperSonics relocated their team to Oklahoma City?
Aside from angering every single basketball fan in Seattle and deleting their rich basketball history and giving NBA legends such as Payton and Kemp the shaft, the new team was asking fans to help rename the new team. I submitted the idea for a new team name as the OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBERS.
And I got mixed reactions.
Firstly, half of the people did not get it.
I was referring to bombers as in bombers.
The B-29 Superfortress!
Little do you know that the B-29 Superfortress is now parked in Oklahoma City!! How perfect would my team name be!? Utterly ridiculous. Instead they named their team the Thunder which isn’t even an object. Good luck with the mascot issue.
Anyway, I have another opportunity as it seems that the Golden State Warriors are in debate whether or not they want a name change as well.
My suggestion would be The Golden State Californians…after the best SNL skit ever created.
“Whuddaaar yewwwww doing heeerrrre?”
I knew you would agree with me.
What do you think?
Apologies to my faithful readers (all 3 of you…)
I have been seriously neglecting this blog for almost half of a year due to many reasons:
- House got flooded
– House got flooded again
– House got flooded again
– House got flooded again
And guess what. Last night as I was going to bed, I saw a drip from the new pipe they installed which makes this the fifth time there is a water problem in my condo! !@#$!@$%!$#%!^#$#!!@#$@%…
While there are many reasons to not blog, the reality was that I was very unmotivated and lazy to do so and for this reason… I apologize and leave you with this gift.
Mark Morrison… yes!
I shall make a big effort to blog consistently again!
And I shall update you on all of my wonderful experiences that you missed out on!
