This news is going to be quite a surprise for el Sergi (I hope.) Today I made the big step and signed up as a member with Vertical Hold. You won't believe it but it is a Dual Monthly Membership....no not what you think, it is not with Carmen, it is with Carlos, yes Carlos Fernandez known as Monkey Carlitos. Anyways, this part of the story is probably not too surprising yet though the Carlos part might have come as a surprise...Now the thing that gave this post its name, the locura of the day is that I signed up for a second climbing gym as well. Two sign ups on the same day....that beats everything I think. Again, not what you might think, I am not running from one gym to the next, I didn't go mad yet. The new gym is opening only in May/June and I wanted to climb until then. Check it out, it is called Mesa Rim, and quite a cool climbing gym. Tati and Antonio signed up too. It is going to be the quatro infernale...Till June we have to get in shape because the new gym is mainly lead climbing (it has a great boulder area too....a bit too high). Anyways, thought I share this new record. Tati, Antonio and me are members of two climbing gyms :D....Locura total. Have a great week and a good night.
OK....after this long break this is my third post in 96hours or so. After this, I guess I'll take another 6 month break ;-) This is a video....an example for Sergio......from Cataluna. I want to see the same video with you in it Sergi. I would do it but then again it is too far to Spain just for a video, jiji
Rumble in the jungle or...
Enjoy! Waiting for your next post with the video Sergi.
Have a good night, good morning or whatever it is where you are.
After a long time I am back with another post. I was actually waiting for Santi to post before I would blog again but today I got menaced by Antonio that he would take my blog out of his list... Here we are. Probably, the ones who read this know that it is Xmas time for me now...and for those who didn't, yes, yes, the Serbian church celebrates Christmas according to the Julian calendar. This means Christmas Eve is on January 6 and Christmas on January 7. Anyways, I thought I post a link that I found in good old Wikipedia about Serbian Christmas and traditions. If you are interested check it out: Serbian Christmas
Memorial Day offered itself for a nice day trip to Temecula. We arrived there around 2pm (didn't want to get drunk earlier) and stopped by at Hart Family Winery. A respectable Syrah and Cabernet franc remained in my memory. Next we stopped by at Stuart Cellars. Compared to the more family like atmosphere Hart winery, Stuart Cellars demonstrated a more business oriented atmosphere. The palate started to get overused, the alcohol level increased and the mood turned into more cheerful. If I remember right, the Sangiovese was not too bad. Finishing up the winetasting experience at Mount Palomar Winery with an interesting Port wine and a good Pizza to prevent complete drunkness we were getting exhausted of so much wine. Overall, we had a nice day with very pleasant company. So if y0u want to do a nice day trip, get out of San Diego with friends and enjoy a sunny day, Temecula is worth a trip. If you want to drink exceptional wines, eat good food, don't want to drive to far and still enjoy nice company, I recommend to go to a wine tasting at WineSellar & Brasserie (http://www.winesellar.com).
OK, I noticed that I am too lazy to keep blogging and that my rhythm is more or less like Santi's. As well, I changed the name of the blog since I thought it was bs that I'll write in German or Serbian too (especially with my tempo). So to keep it short, here a link of a nice chess puzzle site for all of you who enjoy playing chess.
