the goats, a business meeting in Mexico City, and 'stoptional'
MEXICO - Today was our earliest morning yet, with a 5 a.m.
wake up. Doug thought this was his chance to observe the
milking of the goats, but when he got to the pen, the chavos
only taunted him for sleeping so late as they finished feeding
the goats, dispensing the daily alfalfa. Brent claims that
12 chavos were singing "I Want It That Way" by
the Backstreet Boys at 5:15. He also claims he didn't join
in the performance.
groggy and without coffee, we got in the car and headed
for Mexico City. The plan was to meet with IPODERAC's largest
customer in Mexico City.
Brown and Joost Krikhaar have agreed to answer your
questions, time permitting. Email Doug
10 minutes, Brent was pulled over for driving without license
plates. Thanks, Hertz! After a quick presentation of documents,
we were back on our way. However, a group accompanying us
in a lead car feared for the worst. Thinking we gringos
had been hauled off to Mexican prison, they apparently went
looking for us.
so we were left to our own devices to make it to the center
of the world's largest city during rush hour. Brent seems
a little too comfortable making left turns from the right
lane of a five-lane road and treating red lights as "stoptional"
- or "altopcional," in Spanish.
finally arrived at our destination in Mexico City and spent
the day meeting with the executives of the company and poring
over sales and financial data. Next it's back to Atlixco
where more adventure awaits ...
