Ha, you didn't even mention that the little boy playing on the rocks is obviously a young Waldo. And you found him!

For some reason it slightly tickles me that Garfield is trying to feed some of his chocolate cereal to Pookie. I think it's because I never imagined Garfield to be much of the sharing type.

Mr. Viagra is clearly giving Rog a boner. How can i tell? Well, Rog has his "boner face" on. Too bad it's the only way to notice it...

"Tacos Nemo"? Is that the best they can do? Here at Monterrey there is a small restaurant called Chicken Lee, an obvious reference to Chicken Little that even uses the mentioned character on the banner at the front of the building.

Zucaritas and Azucaradas... Yeah, these two are not the only brands of food that have strikingly similar names. Talking about potato chips, for example, there are the famous Ruffles from Sabritas, and there are also the Rugges from Leo (quite clever, as the name is derived from "ruges", first person of the verb "rugir" which means "to roar"... And Leo obviously means lion, so...).

I'd get you some photos if I have the chance.

Soon sharks will be extinct and we will have only Mexico to blame.

Good to see you visited Mexico RoG.

Your astonishment about the Frosted Flakes being called "Zucaritas" over here reminded me of, when I was a little lad, I was in my school and our English teacher told the class we had to make a sketch about cereals for the following open class (a kind of stage show for the parents in which the students show off what they do in school and what they are supposed to be learning). As I had lived abroad, everyone asked me the names of the regular cereals were called in English, like Corn Flakes, Cheerio's, Honey Smacks and the like. Most of them were the same in the Mexican market, but no one believed me -not even my teacher- when I told them that Zucaritas are just called "Frosted Flakes" in English. Thinking I was joking with them, they decided to use the weird sounding name "Sugaritas" (pronounced like Sugar with the "-itas" ending) for the sketch. If I had known better, I would facepalmed sooo bad that it would still have medical repercussions today.

And since youre venturing into our country, I once again suggest going to Real de Catorce, a small town in central Mexico that used to be a mining town during colonial days. Since you love the eerie stuff, you'll love that town. It has a strange aura floating on it, you can almost feel your energy being drained while staying in the town.

But unluckily, it doesn't have any drug-discount stores selling Cialis and Viagra, so no Viagra-man.

Those shark skulls and neon-painted skulls should team up.

Oh, knockoff Cliffjumper, where would we be without you? Probably teamed up with Ben 10 and Naruto, that's where.

Another great city you could visit is Zacatecas. They have what I believe is the only underground night club in the world (built inside a mine).

Yep, he and some other friends of ours went. It was quite a fiesta.

Me too, it's something I'd been meaning to do every since we moved out here. Thanks for the suggestions in case we do get a chance to go back for another visit.

Really? I wouldn't know... I ate Mexican food the entire time I was there. Go figure.

Haha, I kept an eye out for them, but didn't see any in Ensenada or any of the other areas we stopped by. Maybe next time. Have you picked up any?
