Mailbag Monday #4

Today_we_continue our Mailbag Monday series…

Dear Isaiah,

Are you having a good time?  Do you like the food there?  I like the food here.  It’s about to be Halloween.  I’m going to be a Metel scull rider.  It’s realy cool.  I live on a ranch.  Where do you live.  I have 26 horses, 1500 cows, 5 dogs, 30 cats!  It’s realy fun to live in North Dakota.


Perfect lunch stop outside of Guerrero Negro

Dear Daxon,

I am sitting here resting in the city of La Paz, on the Sea of Cortez in Mexico’s Baja California Sur.  There is no question: I’m having a really, really good time.  The food in Mexico is spectacular.  I am a North Dakota farmkid who had his own beef cattle growing up as well.  I will never tire of Mexico’s delicious burritos and tacos with beef and beans and rice and more.  What’s more, the seafood in the Baja is spectacular!  North Dakotans sadly miss out on great seafood.  If you ever get the chance, make sure you eat some fresh fish tacos (pescado means fish in Spanish) by the beach because they will change your life.

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and that you got a ton of candy (and no cavities in your teeth!).  We got our fill of candy from Halloween, that is for sure.  I live on a farm/ranch with my family near Devils Lake.  I have to say, we don’t have close to as many cows as you, but we have a large herd of cats that might give you a run for your money.  Living in North Dakota is a blessing; don’t take it for granted, or else you will only realize how special it is once you’re away.

    1500 cows is difficult to envision, wow.

    Is all the pop down there in glass bottles? And do you get strange looks if you refer to it as ‘pop’?

    I’m glad to hear you’ve made it safely to La Paz. It would appear that internet connections are fewer and farther in between as you progress southward.
