My previous trip to Baja was very short

This week has been pretty uneventful. I’m closing in on finishing all photo editing from four months in Europe. I’m now through Andorra and I hope be finished within the week.

This Thursday I’ll be flying to La Paz in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico for the weekend. I haven’t spent much time in Baja. I was in Cabo San Lucas briefly on a cruise ship stop, but I’d hardly call that a visit.

The other big news is that I’ve gone almost an entire week without drinking Diet Coke. Believe me when I say that this is a really big deal for me. I had two days of headaches but they are gone now and I feel much better. I haven’t had anything carbonated and I don’t plan on it in the future.

What I’m Watching

I’ve been watching Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares on Netflix. This series has been out for a long time but I haven’t seen it before. It is a really interesting look not only at the restaurant business (which I have no desire to ever be a part of) but it is also a great look at business in general. So many of the restaurants which are having problems all suffer from the same problems: owners who don’t care, not worrying about the little things, poor marketing, etc. Also, Gordon Ramsey swears a lot which is really entertaining.

The Tudors is sort of like 90210 meets ancient England with a bit of skin for non-basic cable TV thrown in each episode. As much as it is made for a modern TV audience, there is a surprising amount about it that is accurate. I’m curious if/when they are going to make Henry VIII fat and if they would continue the series past his death with Mary and Elizabeth. I think the reign of Elizabeth I would make for a more interesting series, actually.
