Something new! Every once in awhile my readers will send me a picture that they have taken while on vacation on La Isla. I love that people care enough to do that. So I'm thinking, "These are too good to just sit on my harddrive doing nothing!" So I decided to start a new series featuring these pictures. So if you want to have a couple of your La Isla vacation shots shared here, click on my email address and send them along. Include any info you want. I hope I get swamped with pictures. It's always so much fun for me to see my beloved island through others' eyes and what they thought was interesting enough to snap a picture of.
We'll start with this photo sent in by Deb of Wisconsin. She saw this mask hanging in a little shop that specializes in masks on Avenue Hidalgo. The shop is named Aztlan. Deb has informed me that she did buy a mask there but when she got home, they had sent her a different mask! I can't verify this allegation one way or the other so I am just repeating it here. It does point out my earlier admonishment to always watch the shopkeepers wrap your package for shipment. Here or anywhere.
I've always gotten a chuckle out of this particular mask. It looks like Richard Nixon with wings to me. Does anybody else have a problem imagining Nixon with wings??? Everytime I see this I can hear him saying "I didn't lie!" Right.
To my great embarrassment, I cannot recall who sent me the following picture. If you recognize it, please let me know and I will come back and credit you properly. Especially since it is such a great picture and puts me to shame!
How could I, the reporter of all things fantastic on this island, have missed getting a picture of the King and Queen of Karneval this year? That crown is soooooo over the top that it is has transcended tacky and gone right to pretty. Although it does look like something that Ms. Anita Greencard would wear in a Gay Pride parade. Seriously though, this is an attractive couple and I wish them well during their one year reign of doing nothing.
So folks, if you want to be featured here, send me those pics!
