On beer in Guatemala…

So as I’m sure you all know, I’m a big fan of good beer, and that is the one thing that Guatemala lacks. A bar might have only 6 or 8 beers to choose from, mostly Guatemalan with 1 or 2 Mexican beers The ubiquitous beer down here is Gallo and I would liken it to Budweiser. Bravia and Victoria are two of the other big ones and they are also so so at best. Moza is a nice German style bock beer from Guatemala, but a bit too sweet to drink more than one or two. Corona is widely available as well but is more expensive being an import. Nothing is on draft here, everything is in bottles…12oz or litre size.

Alejandra told me a great joke about the local beer…

“What does Bravia have in common with having sex in a canoe? ”
“A: They are both f-cking close to water.”

    Has anyone read “The Art of Motorcycle Mainenance” ? Someone mentioned the book to me and it might not be the exact title.

    Good luck in school tomorrow Lenny.
    Hugs, Mom

      Hi Mom… The book is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and I have read it. It’s a philosophical novel on quality and not really about motorcycle maintenance. It was a tough read…I almost didn’t get through it..

    Len, I knew it wasn’t about motorcycle maintenance. I won’t even attempt to read because of what you say. I am glad I read Steve’s book and finished it this morning.

    Take care. Love ya, Mom.

    You better stop complaining about the beer 🙂 You could be in New York today like me….sitting at my computer waiting for tomorrow at noon 🙂

    Going to the Giants/Dallas game on Sunday….got some box seats…go Dallas 😉

    • Lenny says:

      Ha! You’re right about that! I’ll shut up now….lol!

      Box seats…lucky you! BTW, what’s the Giants and Eagles records so far this year, just wondering… 😛

  6. Nancy says:

    Ha! I am searching for a new team…I cannot be an Eagles fan anymore…Vick is a loser…and I can’t just become a Giants fan as an alternative…

    So I am going to see who wins the superbowl this year and then they will be my new team ….for the record I hate Dallas as well…

    Think Snow 🙂
