sorry, banat4, we were waaaay off-topic. I´ll shut up now.

hahaha you guys are funny! Can I get in on that gallon too when i move?
Thanks for the info! I guess since i want to get a house there..perhaps i'll look at a gated community. Safe for kids and all that.

rubio is funny, I´m just different.
well, rubio buys the first gallon,
I accidently will forget the 2nd at the walmardo check-out,
so you could buy the third.
I mean, it´s only fair, right?

HI...your more than welcome to join us in some drinks for sure.....
In all the winters i been going to playa and this will be my 13th winter, i didnt really see a big difference in the crime, it was always crimes of opportunity, meaning they werent violent crimes. if you leave something laying around it goes away. I have seen numerous break ins at night when the people were home and they didnt even know it till they woke up, some even in daylight hours,,,so the best i can say is get some dogs and big dogs and make sure they bark alot. Some of the breakins i have seen over the years are directly related to cleaning people who scope out the condos first,,but thats a story id rather tell in person, some of the breakins are directly related to the security people who are supposed to be looking after things, who are not on work that day...so just keep things locked away and im sure you wont be any more of a target than anyone else...generally i feel playa is much safer than any large city here in canada and alot of the states
so yes join us for some drinks, anytime after the sun comes up,,lol

Fair enough. I'm sure it's worse here where I am than there. I'll have to see what a better deal is..to get a motorcycle to get around or a vehicle too. Where do you guys usually hang out at aside from the beach?

Weird they all go away. Lot of people seem to be driving around in those. $300 for a used car? Would that be a clunker? lol
I'll definitely let you know when I go there and we'll have a drink, or five

This could happen to any of us. Be aware of what is happening around you. Some areas are obviously more prone to this type of thing than others. No need for alarm, just be aware.

what i have seen and heard the motos are not stolen that often,
but unless you are very good on them,
I´d suggest to stay away from driving one,
traffic here is not bad, but the drivers are, if any fool can get a license in 10 mins,
what do you expect, right?

manne´s beergarden - 4th between 10th and 15th.
la tarraya - afternoon, especially sundays - beach corner of 2nd street
alive - new place just opened last sunday - former ´el bar´owner ale -
8th corner with 15th open 3pm till 2 am. too late for rubio,
but I gotta go some place after he kicks me out ... and manne closes at 1!!!!???!!!!
´ the horror´ to quote brando.

let me find out about the beer prices tonight,
I got my wine deal worked out in an hour last night,
so I am one bar richer to frequent.
helps that I know her for so many years,
remember ´el bar´? we used to stumble out of the karaoke place on 6th
at 5 in the morning and share a cab north,
back in the days, when I was young, like
79.( me but take the beard off,
at least at the customs, they don´t like that stuff).

how many sleeps, rubio?

darn, we hickjacked this thing again, sorry.
I blame the wine.
