2023.03.13 01:52 StJimmyOfficial Green Day Tunings with Hertz
Sometimes when I play some songs using standard tuning I feel that I sound out of tune. Some time ago I asked the reason and the most likely one is that the audio engineers would increase or decrease the speed of the song, which would cause the pitch to change. It's for this reason that I started to catalog the songs with their tunings in hertz, so I could correct this detuning in my guitar or vice versa, correct the tuning of the song. For the latter I recommend using Reaper for the Reapitch plugin that allows to reduce and increase the pitch in cents and for the formant shift function (if you find a better alternative I would appreciate it).

2023.03.10 15:37 sonofabutch March 10, 1993: The Minnesota North Stars announce they are moving to Dallas. It was later rumored owner Norm Green's wife demanded he move the team because so many women in Minnesota had filed sexual harassment claims against him!
"When he came here, he said, 'Only an idiot could lose money on hockey in Minnesota.' Well, I guess he proved that point." -- Julie Hammond, president of the North Star booster club.
Why would an NHL team leave hockey-crazy Minnesota to go to football-loving Texas? Maybe because the owner's wife said she'd leave him due to the parade of sexual harassment claims that had been filed against him in Minnesota. Norm Green
was born in Winnipeg and made millions developing and managing shopping centers and malls in Canada and the United States. In 1979, he was part of an investment group that bought the Atlanta Flames and moved them to Calgary. (His name was etched onto the Stanley Cup when the Calgary Flames won it in 1989.) From 1979 to 1996, he served on the NHL's Board of Governors.
In 1990, Green sold his stake in the Flames to become part of a group that bought the Minnesota North Stars from brothers George and Gordon Gund. The North Stars had been founded in 1967, when the league doubled in size by adding six expansion teams the "Original Six."
The Gund brothers also played a part in the NHL's game of musical chairs, buying the NHL's California Golden Seals from San Francisco, then moving them to Ohio to become Cleveland Barons, then buying the Minnesota North Stars and merging them with the Barons, contracting the NHL by one team.
The Barons and the North Stars had each finished last in their respective divisions during the 1977-1978 season, but combined, and with 1978 #1 pick Bobby Smith, the North Stars quickly became competitive, reaching the playoffs every year from 1980 to 1986 (and the Stanley Cup finals in 1981). But then the North Stars began to struggle again, and attendance fell off enough
that the Gunds started campaigning to move the team again, back to San Francisco.
Wanting to keep an NHL team in Minnesota, the league agreed in 1990 to award the Gund brothers an expansion team in San Jose (eventually named the Sharks), if the Gunds agreed to sell the North Stars to the group of investors who had been trying to put the expansion team in San Jose... in essence, the two franchises traded owners! And a last-minute addition to that investment team was Norm Green, who would soon buy out his partners to become the team's sole owner.
During the 1990-1991 season, the Minnesota North Stars were the NHL's Cinderella story. Despite having a losing season -- their fifth in a row -- the North Stars advanced all the way to finals before losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.
But behind the scenes, Green was contemplating a move out of Minnesota. He claimed to be losing millions of dollars
in a state where hockey was practically a religion. Green blamed the Met Center, the 15,000-seat arena that had housed the North Stars since their founding in 1967. The Bloomington arena was popular with players and fans, but not with Green, who said it didn't have enough luxury boxes, amenities, or season ticket holders. (For all his complaining, though, the team had seen its average attendance climb from just 7,838 in 1990-1991 to 13,447 in 1991-1992 and 13,910 in 1992-1993.
) The former mall developer wanted to develop the land around the Met Center to connect it to the nearby Mall of America, but the city wouldn't let him. He was offered a chacne to move to the Target Center in Downtown Minneapolis, but turned it down rather than lose his endorsement deal with Pepsi. (The Target Center had a deal with Coca-Cola.) He also pursued a deal to move into the Civic Center in St. Paul, but couldn't agree to terms. He also turned down an offer from a group of local investors to buy the team, who wanted to ensure the team stayed in Minnesota.
It's possible all the talk about not being able to find a suitable Minnesota home for the North Stars was just a smoke screen anyway. Green, it seemed, was determined to get the North Stars out of the north. (Perhaps not coincidentally, for the 1991-1992 season, the North Stars unveiled a new logo -- one that simply said "STARS".)
"I think Norm was going to move the team from the beginning. I think that was his idea when he bought the team. We all should have known when he changed the uniforms, taking away the N and leaving just the word STARS on the jersey. Stars? You can be Stars anywhere." -- Former North Stars broadcaster Al Shaver
The first plan was to move to Anaheim, where a new arena was being built. The new team would be called the Los Angeles Stars. But the Walt Disney Company had plans of their own. They convinced the NHL to expand again, by two teams -- the Florida Panthers and the The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, named after the movie that had been released a year earlier... which, coincidentally, had been set in hockey-crazy Minnesota!
The NHL wanted Disney as an owner, so they told Green he couldn't move to Anaheim. But as compensation to Green, he could move the North Stars to any other city. Once again, the NHL was playing musical chairs with its franchises, and this time, Minnesota would be left without a team when the music stopped.
During the 1992-1993 season, Green decided he'd move the team to Texas, and name the team the Dallas Stars. Fans started calling him "Norm Greed". The decision was announced March 10, 1993... a month before the end of the season. Predictably, at each of the remaining home games, a chant would go up: "Norm sucks!"
Enterprising vendors began selling "Norm Sucks" merchandise outside the Met Center, and fans brought in banners, posters, and signs to express that opinion. Sports Illustrated
offered this colorful coverage of the April 10, 1993
, North Stars-Blues game:
In the first period Minnesota fell behind 2-0. Norm sucks. In the second period the North Stars outshot the Blues 21-5 and took a 3-2 lead on a goal by Gaetan Duchesne with 49 seconds left. Norm sucks. In the final period, Norm sucks, they hung on for a 4-3 win.
In March 1993, the Target Center was hosting the third round of the National Invitational Tournament, with USC playing Minnesota, and once again, the chant broke out. According to Adam Raider's Frozen in Time: A Minnesota North Stars History
, USC coach George Raveling was perplexed... he heard the hometown crowd chanting "Norm Green Sucks" but he didn't have a player named Norm Green on his team. Who were they so mad at?
USC Associate Head Coach Jack Fertig said:
"[George] was as good at playing to visiting crowds as anyone," Fertig recalled. "He had no idea what the commotion was about. He walked to the end of the bench and asked some of the jeering fans, 'Who's Norm Green?'" "He's the SOB who moved the North Stars to Dallas," a fan responded. "Oh yeah," Raveling concurred. "He does suck."
Green, meanwhile, was far away from the wrath of the Minnesota fans, staying at his mansion in Palm Springs. But he did attend a North Stars road game when they were playing the Los Angeles Kings on April 3, 1993. A Minnesota fan spotted him and dumped a full cup of beer over his head.
"Norm Green is a money-hungry, egotistical, country-club-seeking lizard," a young woman from St. Paul, Wendi Rodewald, said, sitting there in her official North Star game jersey topped by her unofficial NORM SUCKS button. "Wait a minute. Did I say 'greedy'? He's a greedy, money-hungry, egotistical, country-club-seeking lizard. And he looks like Satan."
As if he wasn't getting enough bad publicity, around the same time, Green was being sued for sexual harassment by his former executive assistant, Kari Dziedzic. As reported in the April 19, 1993, issue of Sports Illustrated:
She alleges that he often kissed female employees, including her, and required kisses in return, that he shook a female employee's shoulder to see if she was wearing a bra and that he wanted to hire a receptionist with "the right look," which he explained was blonde hair, large breasts and a pretty face.
Dziedzic wasn't the only one. According to Patrick Forciea, the team's senior vice president, there were several women, and he'd spoken to Green about sexual harassment complaints against him about a half-dozen times in the last 18 months.
Patty Reid, who had been the North Stars' community relations director, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune
that Green said he was firing her because they'd lacked "the right chemistry." When she asked what that meant, Green told her: "Before you were married, when you would meet men, sometimes there would be a chemistry. You'd think, 'That's the kind of guy I'd like to date.' That's what I mean by chemistry. You're not the kind of person I'd want to date."
Green admitted to "affectionate" behavior but said it wasn't sexual. He also blamed Canada.
"If somebody says the rules of Minnesota are different from the rules of Calgary, I'm going to fit into that and we're going to change that. I do not know your rules. But I do know the rules of logic and respect. And there isn't anybody that respects women more than I. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that if there are some people who feel the slightest bit uncomfortable, I should change that style. In 40 years I've never had anyone complain."
He would later call all the allegations a "series of lies"... and pay Dziedzic an undisclosed amount of money to make the lawsuit go away.
In a deposition for that lawsuit, Forciea said the sexual harassment allegations were the main reason the North Stars moved to Dallas
, and that Green had made the North Stars' financial situation look bleaker than it actually was. It was rumored that the numerous allegations had caused Green's wife, Kelly, to demand that he move the team, or she would leave him!
Despite the parade of women who had accused Green of sexual harassment -- not to mention the numerous deals Green turned down to move the team to Minneapolis or St. Paul, or to sell the team to local investors, or the allegations he had bought the team with the intention of moving it -- some fans blamed Dziedzic for the team leaving Minnesota.
Just six months after relocating to Texas, the Dallas Stars were back in Minnesota
, as the NHL had scheduled six "neutral site" games to be played at the Target Center... and the first one was between the Dallas Stars and the Ottawa Senators. The game on December 9, 1993
, sold more than 14,000 tickets, but one seat was empty -- Norm Green didn't attend. But fans once again made themselves heard... and seen. Banners were forbidden, but fans wore T-shirts, caps, and buttons emblazoned with "Norm Sucks." One fan even attended the game with "Norm Still Sucks" cut into his haircut. The Stars won, 6-1.
Green said he still loved Minnesota, and claimed to be astonished by the fans' ire:
"My wife and I had bought a nice house on a lake in Minnesota, just beautiful, and I planned to spend summers there, no matter what happened. I said that to Frank Gifford, who is a friend. He said it wouldn't be possible. He said, 'Have you ever heard of Walter O'Malley?'" Where are they now? Norm Green
found as much trouble in Texas as he had in Minnesota. He got into a dispute with the city of Dallas over the right to advertise beer sales inside Reunion Arena, and just 37 days after the Dallas Stars played their first game he threatened to move the team to neighboring Tarrant County
. Just two years later, Green sold the team for $82 million to Tom Hicks, who a few years later would also buy the Texas Rangers. The Dallas Stars
would win the 1999 Stanley Cup Championship. (Hicks gave Green a championship ring.) In 2011, the Dallas Stars went bankrupt and were sold to Vancouver businessman Tom Gaglardi for $240 million. They are currently in 1st place in the Western Conference's Central Division. Minnesota
attempted to get another NHL team in the mid 1990s -- the Edmonton Oilers or Winnipeg Jets. (The Oilers were instead sold to a group of local investors who kept the team in Edmonton; the Jets relocated to Arizona in 1996 and became the Phoenix, now Arizona, Coyotes.) The following year, the NHL announced it would put one of four expansion teams in Minneapolis. Bob Naegele Jr., the son of a Minnesota billboard maven and the former owner of Rollerblade, would be the team's owner. The Minnesota Wild began play in 2000 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Naegele sold the team in 2008 to Craig Leipold, the former owner of the Nashville Predators. They are currently in 2nd place in the Western Conference's Central Division... 2 points behind the Dallas Stars. The Met Center
was demolished December 13, 1994, in a series of implosions, then by wrecking ball. (The first implosion, on live TV, didn't completely bring the building down.
) The property then became an overflow parking lot for the Mall of America. In 2004, IKEA Minneapolis
opened on the west end of the site, and American Boulevard crosses through the east end of the site. Mall of America's future expansion plans
may include taking over the remaining property. The lone remaining remnant of the Met Center was a parking lot sign that was removed in 2013 and auctioned off to benefit the Minnesota Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
And the biggest surprise "Where Are They Now?"... Kari Dziedzic
was elected to the Minnesota State Senate in 2012
. In November, she was selected as Senate Majority Leader!

2023.03.07 13:50 justseemswonky [OC] Gladwell isn't the only Bill Simmons podcast guest with ties to Jeffrey Epstein. Adam Perry Lang, Epstein's private chef, is a BS Report and House of Carbs guest and a close friend of Jimmy Kimmel
Last week, Jimmy Kimmel called Aaron Rodgers "a Green Bay Wack-Packer" and suggested it might be time to revisit concussion protocol
because Rodgers talked about Jeffrey Epstein's client list being released soon when he was on Pat McAfee's show.
This subreddit loves mentioning Gladwell flying with Epstein Airlines, so I think this could be interesting.
Introducing: Adam Perry Lang, chef and owner of APL restaurant, close friend of Jimmy Kimmel and multiple time Ringer podcast network guest... and Jeffrey Epstein's private chef from 1999-2003.
Jimmy Kimmel is a close friend of Andrew Perry Lang and investor in his restaurant
and Jimmy Kimmel Live guest from Variety
Adam Perry Lang is perhaps best known in L.A. for setting up his barbecue smoker in the parking lot of his buddy Jimmy Kimmel’s Hollywood Boulevard studio
Kimmel and Andrew Perry Lang did a video for Hollywood Reporter together
In 2019, APL was arrested and later cleared for making criminal threats (his ex-wife falsely (I guess) accused him), but the interesting part is that police found him in Jimmy Kimmel's house, just showing how close they are.
Jimmy Kimmel's good friend who was arrested for allegedly making criminal threats from inside his beachside rental home got busted because of a key ear-witness -- his estranged wife ... TMZ has learned. Perry Lang appeared on BS report in 2009
. He also made a video for The Ringer's YouTube about making a hot dog in 2017 And he appeared on House of Carbs in 2018
And our guy Bill was excited about his restaurant opening in 2018, quote tweeting Kimmel: "THIS IS EXTREMELY BAD FOR MY HEALTH" about opening of APL
. Now the bad part:
These quotes are from Eaters recap of Broken: Seeking Justice, a podcast by Tara Palmeri investigating billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring
(Open the story or listen to the podcast for more details)
The podcast follows Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an Epstein victim attempting to reach Lang, who worked as Epstein’s private chef in the early 2000s. Last year, unsealed court documents showed Lang flew with Epstein in private jets and traveled with the billionaire to various properties in Florida, New Mexico, and the Virgin Islands. At the time, Lang responded by claiming that his role for Epstein was “limited to meal preparation” and that he was “unaware of depraved behavior,” extending “sympathy and admiration for the women who have come forward.” Adam Perry Lang also knew Prince Andrew. And Adam Perry Lang admitted only this about his connection to Epstein:
However, Giuffre’s account in the podcast sheds more light onto Lang’s relationship with Epstein as his private chef. During the episode, Giuffre searches for Lang to ask him to speak up against Epstein, who died by suicide while in custody awaiting trial for sex-trafficking charges. Giuffre is seeking support for her case against Epstein’s former lawyer Alan Dershowitz, whom she accused of sexual abuse (Dershowitz denies the allegations).
Giuffre specifically reached out to Lang, whom she says had a different position from other staff in Epstein’s hire.
Giuffre said there were naked girls inside and outside the house, with Lang serving them iced tea, water, and fruit platters. Palmeri says several women they spoke with remember Lang at Epstein’s properties, saying he was “very polite.” Epstein allegedly favored petite, pre-pubescent bodies, which led him and co-conspirator Ghislane Maxwell, a close associate who has been charged with facilitating sexual abuse of minors, to closely monitor the girls’ diets.
Lang and Giuffre had more extended interactions because of the strict diets, which entailed organic, low-carb meals. “I went to the kitchen to go get something and I was starving,” said Giuffre, who asked Lang to prepare a pizza for her. This became a nightly routine: “He would have a pizza waiting for me already in the kitchen...we would just have a beer together and eat pizza and just talk. Sometimes I’d help him wash the dishes,” Giuffre said. Maxwell eventually caught wind of the nighttime pizza and beer, reprimanding both Lang and Giuffre, and making sure they would no longer interact.
About seven months ago, leaning on this connection, the podcast follows Palmeri and Giuffre as they attempt to deliver Lang a letter to his Manhattan Beach home that asks him to help those who were abused. Here is an excerpt from the letter:
A woman answers the door to the home, but says Lang isn’t there. Instead they research on Google to discover that Lang is staying at a home in Hermosa Beach owned by Jimmy Kimmel, the late night television host and co-owner in APL restaurant
In a statement to Robb Report, Lang has confirmed the connection: “Almost 20 years ago, as a young chef I was hired to work for Jeffrey Epstein. My role was limited to meal preparation. I was unaware of the depraved behavior and have great sympathy and admiration for the brave women who have come forward.” It's crazy that Jimmy Kimmel has the audacity to call Aaron Rodgers crazy for wanting to talk about Epstein client list. Bill and House are highly likely friends with a guy that controlled diets of Epstein's victims, or they and Sal are super tight with his close friend Kimmel who lets him stay at his house.
Disclaimer: I didn't do any investigative work, I just remembered Kimmel's chef being on Epstein flight logs and seeing that Kimmel video about Rodgers was just shocking knowing that. Kimmel is just shameless. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets his talking points from a government agency, he also called people from Wallstreetbets going against the hedge funds "Russian Disruptors". I don't care about any other conspiracies or Covid stuff Aaron Rodgers talks about.
EDIT: I just found more details about Perry Lang and Epstein
While going through his flight log, Rodgers explicitly lists Lang as a passenger along with Epstein and Maxwell on six flights between 2000 and 2001. He details a trip in May of 2001 from Teterboro Airport to Palm Beach, where the passengers were Epstein, Maxwell, Lang, and Emmy Tayler, a woman who was reported to be Maxwell’s assistant, according to the Telegraph. According to reports from numerous accusers and former employees, Epstein and Maxwell would recruit young girls from nearby schools into performing sexual massages on him and other houseguests at his mansion in Palm Beach. Giuffre says that she first met Maxwell and Epstein in 2000, when she was 16, and began performing massages on him at the Palm Beach house.
According to the pilot’s account, Lang also flew from Teterboro to the Virgin Islands with Epstein, Maxwell, and Giuffre in December of 2000. Epstein owned a 70-acre island in the area at the time, Little St. James, where he would entertain his A-list friends. According to several locals and former employees, Epstein was also known to visit the island — which he referred to as “Little St. Jeff’s” — with underage girls.

2023.02.24 04:36 reebeaster Colleen Elizabeth Perris: Intelligent, Young, Missing
Colleen Perris was 18 when she went missing on 9/30/00. She was petite - 5’2” and 95 lbs. She often colored her hair and her hair had dark red highlights in blonde hair at the time of her disappearance. Her hair was naturally curly but she would straighten it. She was Caucasian and had blue eyes. She had 3 tattoos (pictures of tattoos can be seen at the Charley Project link below) - a large colorful butterfly on the small of her back, some Chinese characters on her right ankle and an unspecified tattoo on her left ankle. She had 3 piercings - navel, tongue and ears. She was a cigarette smoker and smoked Newport Menthols. She liked getting her nails done regularly.
One word that was used to describe her was “experimental” which I found a bit odd but that descriptor was never really explained in anything I read. Did the term “experimental” pertain to her experimenting with LSD and ecstasy as allegedly provided to her and her friends by her uncle (I have not been able to find his name)?
Experimenting with drugs is pretty common at that age especially ecstasy during the late 90s and early 2000s. Conversely, experimental could have had to do with how often she experimented with her look with her hair. Hard to say. She was described as shy. She had many hobbies. She played the piano, liked to sing, enjoyed playing billiards and darts. She did not like to drive. When it came to her choice of romantic partners, she typically chose males who were described as older than her.
Besides being described as an experimental person, Perris was smart. She was an excellent student at Plantation High School in Plantation, FL, but she ended up dropping out anyway. Dropping out while maintaining good grades is a bit confounding, but then again, sometimes, people drop out of school not due to issues with their grades, but due to other very valid reasons. Whatever her rationale for that was, she ended up re-enrolling and had been very close to getting her diploma around her disappearance. She was also described as free-spirited but also strong willed. She was employed part-time as a hostess at a restaurant at the time of her disappearance. She had saved $1,000. She seemed to have plans for the future. She purchased plane tickets for a Colorado vacation in December 2000. She was scheduled to take a cruise in the future. Perris had things to look forward to. She had her whole life ahead of her. Perris' travel tickets have never been used.
Coincidentally (or not), Perris had been planning to meet the aforementioned uncle the day that she disappeared. They appeared to have been close and her friends stated that he was trying to help her begin a pornographic career although he denied any of that and denied supplying Colleen and her friends any drugs. Additionally, there was no evidence of either claim. Curiously, Perris’ uncle denied that there was a planned meeting at all.
At approximately 3 PM on 9/30, Colleen received a phone call. She had been at her parents’ home located near Flamingo Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard in Plantation, Florida when she received that call. Perris told her parents that she was going to Coral Springs for a little while and would be back to the house by about 5:30/6:00 that evening. She planned to attend a Florida Marlins baseball game with her family that very night, but after that phone call and after leaving to presumably go to Coral Springs, she was never seen again. Those close to her reported that Perris did not have a history of being a runaway and it was unlike her to just disappear without warning. The police were unable to trace that phone call Perris received at 3 PM. It is unknown if the phone call was connected to her disappearance.
The only personal belongings Colleen took with her were a cellular phone and a purse. She left everything else behind. Perris' father pays the basic maintenance charges on her phone to this day and calls it every two weeks, leaving a message each time, but he has never gotten an answer. I started wondering why the voicemail box isn’t full since he leaves a message each time, but I digress.Perris' car, a white two-door 1994 Mazda MX-6 was discovered in a Tamarac, Florida shopping center parking lot on October 6, 2000. The vehicle has the Florida license plate number D48-PIE, a sunroof, tinted windows, and dents behind the driver's side door and rear wheel well. A family friend is the one who located Perris' car and contacted the police. The car and surrounding area didn’t show any sign of foul play. The car was parked near Pine Island Road and McNab Road. Perris's cellular phone was missing from the car which had rolled-up windows and locked doors. It had rained and no fingerprints or other clues remained on the exterior of the car. Her cellphone and purse were not in the car.
Although Colleen was a billiards enthusiast, and a sports bar called Bill and Cue was located at the shopping center her car was abandoned at, no witnesses saw her there and her family did not believe she had reason to be there.
Perris was declared dead in November 2007. but there have been numerous unconfirmed sightings of her after her disappearance in such places as California, the Bahamas and Alabama. Authorities do not believe she left the area willingly.
What do you think happened to Colleen Perris? A possibility posed on The Charley Project is that she is working in the restaurant industry or as a lingerie model, but I do not see that as really being plausible. All this time without a peep? I hope one day her family and friends get a resolution to what happened to their loved one.
Edited to include a correction: I was looking up some info to answer a commenter’s question & I ended up on another link that stated this important info about Colleen’s phone bill being paid and for how long. I hadn’t read this article before doing the write-up. On Charley Project, it stated: Perris's father still pays the basic maintenance charges on the phone and calls it every two weeks, leaving a message each time, but he has never gotten an answer. But the thing is, the last time Perris’ page was updated was 3/15/19. Medium’s article about Perris was written 7/6/22 & it states this (Nick & Nancy are Colleen’s parents): “Four years after Colleen vanished, Nick and Nancy finally made the heartbreaking decision to stop paying for her cell phone. They also sold her car and cashed out her college fund to offer a $20,000 reward for information leading to their daughter’s location. They have accepted the fact that Colleen is most likely no longer alive.” The link to the Medium article is located with the sources. Sorry for the discrepancy!

2023.02.23 17:30 ponkyball La Traviata relocating to Southwest Austin!
Behind a paywall but try this: https://archive.ph/xKlLU#selection-466.0-466.1
Exclusive: Beloved Italian restaurant La Traviata relocating from downtown to Southwest Austin 📷Matthew Odam
Austin American-StatesmanPublished 1:56 p.m. CT Feb. 22, 2023
Lovers of Italian food and denizens of Southwest Austin alike will be thrilled with the news that one of Austin's longest-running Italian restaurants will be re-emerging from its pandemic slumber in a new location.
Chef Marion Gillcrist told the American-Statesman that she plans to open a location of La Traviata
at 7415 Southwest Parkway later this year in the same development where her former employee chef Ling Qi Wu recently opened Ling Wu Asian Restaurant
Longtime Austinites will remember that Gillcrist opened the original La Traviata at 314 Congress Ave. in the summer of 2000, with the restaurant quickly rising to the top of Austin's Italian ranks thanks to pasta dishes like spaghetti carbonara, a lush three-meat Bolognese and aglio e olio spaghetti with shrimp.
Construction has not yet begun on the new restaurant, which Gillcrist says will have "some hints" of the décor of her intimate downtown trattoria.
"I’m very excited," Gillcrist wrote in an email. "I will continue the signature dishes along with some new dishes. Between COVID and some of the changes downtown it was a great time for me to start fresh. I’m very excited and looking forward to parking, a new kitchen and an outdoor patio."
The coronavirus pandemic sent Gillcrist and the restaurant scrambling for answers in 2020. The restaurant operated as takeout-only for most of the summer of 2020 and briefly reopened its dining room before announcing a temporary closure due to a downtown bereft of workers and diners.
While La Traviata has been closed for more than two-and-a-half years, diners have still had a chance to taste Gillcrist's cooking, with the longtime Austin chef working at her sister Joan's restaurant, 68 Degrees, on Lake Austin Boulevard next to Deep Eddy Pool.
Gillcrist did not respond to a question about whether La Traviata also would return to its original space.

2023.02.11 08:56 mkulovic Mobile, AL - 2000’s
Does any of you have any pictures of Mobile in 2000’s, if you do please post it here. If not if you can write a brief story where were you working and what did you do for fun or found it to be fun in those years.
I was working at Bebo’s Car Wash on Airport & Cody Rd from 2002 to 2006.
Those were the good years, good music, good cars, body kits with chrome wheels and spinners, hitting the club Thursday (college night) then Friday and Saturday mostly downtown clubs.
Car meet-up at Bruno’s on Airport and University every Friday night then cruising down Airport Boulevard with my two 12’s.
Pool halls were also popular back then and we usually went there around 8 o’clock then after that hit the clubs.
There were so many good clubs in those years not just in downtown:
Austin's Country Palace, on Halls Mill Rd we used to go there and I was 21/22 years old at that time 2004/2005.
Whiskey - off Government / close to Azelea Rd.
Club Casino - off Schillinger Rd and Tanner.
Edge - this was the place to go after downtown partying usually around 3-4 AM.

2023.01.25 03:20 chrissul13 i-77 and 485
Is there a trick for using i-77 and 485 to commute to uptown Charlotte? I tried at 7:00 a.m., I tried at 8:00 a.m., I tried at 9:00 a.m., I tried it 3:00 p.m., I tried it 4:00 p.m., I didn't try at 5:00... I have tried at 7:00 with a little success...
In every single instance, it took longer than it takes me to get from Indian Land to uptown Charlotte by using 77 instead of Park road or South boulevard even though it is much faster when traffic is non-existent... Like 2:00 a.m... Or like in the year 2000
I avoided being in three accidents today and I witnessed and F-150 merge into 77 by turning his entire truck perpendicular to the flow of traffic to get into the left hand lane from the far right hand lane of 485... He would have been t-boned had anyone just floored it
I was nearly clipped by an Altima at 2:00 p.m. as he raced upon my bumper and quickly changed to the left lane and then back in front of me and then back to the left lane and then back in front of me and then back to the left lane to get around a truck.... That was actually during extremely light traffic and I wish I had a video because I'm still in the WTF position....
Thanks for coming to my Ted rant... Always use a dash cam

2023.01.15 02:03 spaghettaboutit1 Anyone get a pic of the lightning near GGB?
2023.01.13 11:09 -Bonjour-- Our first trip to Mexico (2003)
MEXICO CITY is one of the largest cities in the world. On approach, you can already see how enormous the dimensions of this metropolis are, which lies at an altitude of 2242 m and is thus one of the highest places in the world. Mexico City is for me a fascinating city with many sights, which you usually can not look at all in one visit. The historic center includes the National Palace, the Cathedral and the Aztec Templo Mayor. The eight-lane boulevard Paseo de la Reforma is lined with magnificent palaces and modern high-rises. It leads past the Zona Rosa with many hotels and stores to the green lung of Chapultepec Park and the Anthropological Museum. Nearby destinations include the San Angel district, the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadeloupe and the imposing pyramids and temples of Teohitucán. A visit to the historic center is best begun with breakfast at Sanborns Restaurant in the Casa de los Azulejos, If the weather is clear, the 180-meter-high Torre Latinoamericana across the street is a good place to start. From the observation deck on the 42nd floor you have a wonderful panoramic view over the city. The further way leads then surely first of all to the Zócalo - officially Plaza de la Constitución. This was once the ceremonial center of the Aztecs, and the square still lends itself to huge spectacles - of whatever kind. For example, up to 1 million people gather here to celebrate independence on September 15. The dominant building here is the Catedral Metropolitana de la Asunción de Maria. The cathedral is 100 m long, 46 m wide and with 5 naves and 14 chapels it is probably the largest church building in Mexico. The construction lasted over three centuries - until the 19th century. The cathedral was supported by a huge steel scaffolding to keep it from sinking further into the spongy subsoil. Tremendous work was required to stabilize the subsoil. For a time, it was forbidden to enter the cathedral for safety reasons. Inside the cathedral are gilded altars, a cedar choir stall, wall frescoes, Gothic vaults and Baroque paintings. Near Mexico City's Zócalo is the Tile House, in Mexican Casa de los Azulejos. The beautiful colonial house was built in 1596. In the 17th century it was joined with another building, creating a larger residence for the Condes del Valle de Orizaba family. In the 18th century, the house was renovated in the Baroque style, and blue and white tiles (azulejos) from Pueblo were added on the outside, hence the name. Today, the beautiful patio with its slender columns is home to a busy restaurant.The building is open to the public without the need to eat or drink anything there. You can also find small stores with books, souvenirs and sweets everywhere. Particularly noteworthy is the painting "Omniscience" by Mexican artist José Clemente Orozco from 1925, which embellishes the staircase to the second floor. Also worth seeing is a 1914 photograph of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa having breakfast. Near the Zócalo are the remains of El Templo Mayor, the main temple of the Aztecs. These remains were not discovered until 1978, during work on the metro, when the altar stone of the moon goddess Coyolxauhqui was found. The site had several superstructures, including a pyramid with two temples on the double spire - one for the god of water Huitzilopochtsers and one for the god of fertility Tlaloc. The foundation walls of the pyramid are largely exposed. Over narrow footbridges one can get an impression. Most of the finds are now on display in the Museo del Templo Mayor. On the east side of the Zócale is the official residence of the president - the Palacio Nacional - 235 m long. This building was the palace of Hernán Cortés in colonial times. He had the building constructed on the site where Montezuma's palace was located. Visitors usually come here to admire the murals by Diego Rivera in the staircase. The "murales" depict Mexico's history up to independence. Diego Rivera (1886-1957) was one of the most important artists and muralists in the 20th century. His works decorate many famous buildings, especially in Mexico. He was married for 10 years to Frida Kalo, the most important Mexican painter of the 20th century.
The main post office - Palacio de Correos - is definitely worth a visit. When you enter the counter hall with its palatial vaults, you feel transported to another time, around the beginning of the 19th century. The postal workers work behind wrought iron bars. The open wrought-iron staircase swings lightly upward.
Walking down Avenida Juárez from the Zócalo toward Paseo de Reformas - the most important street in Mexico City - you first pass the Palacio de Bellas Artes. This building was begun in 1904, but was not completed until 30 years later, because here too the building was in danger of sinking, and the subsoil had to be consolidated first. The facade is pure Art Nouveau, while the interior is more Art Deco. This palace is a theater, opera house, concert hall, exhibition hall and art gallery.
Directly behind it you enter the Alameda Park. During the Inquisition, witches were burned here. In the 19th century, the current park with fountains, sculptures and music pavilion was created.
Chapultepec Park - Bosque de Chapultepec in Mexican - in the west of Mexico City is the largest green area and therefore also "the green lung" of the megacity. From the park you have a beautiful view of Mexico City in good weather - which also exists in this city.
Before the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards - in the times of the Aztecs - drinking water was obtained from this forest, because Lake Texcoco was salty. Mexican rulers also lived here for centuries.
On weekends, you can see what is probably the world's largest playground and picnic area when tens of thousands of people come here. There are stalls with food, fruits, sweets and toys. You can admire clowns and jugglers. The area covers about 6000 square meters and is very popular as a recreational park - especially for families with children.
The summer residence - the Castillo Chapultepec - of the Spanish Viceroy later became Mexican Military Academy. This Castillo was also once the residence of Emperor Maximilian and his wife Charlotte. Today it houses the Museo Nacional de Historia - Mexico's History from the Conquest to the Revolution. Until 1939, it was the residence of the Mexican president.
The Monumento a los Ninos Héreos with its 6 columns commemorates the 6 Mexican cadets who resisted for a long time against the Americans entering the capital and in the end chose suicide.
The northern part of the park borders on the elegant Polanco district with consulates, embassies, hotels, restaurants, boutiques, etc.
Across from the park is the Museo Nacional de Antropología. Opened in 1964, this museum - a journey through Mexico - is one of the best in the world. In front of the entrance you are "greeted" by the rain god Tlaloc - a monolith 8 meters high and weighing 165 tons.
The museum is divided into the introduction of Central American anthropology, pre-Columbian culture and ethnology of the pre-Hispanic population. One can see archaeological findings, display panels and replica exhibits from the Mayans of Palenque and Uxmal, the Olmecs of Villahermosa and the Aztecs of Monte Alban, etc.
The buildings surround an inner courtyard, covered with a giant umbrella, on whose supporting column a "rain veil" constantly runs down.
The central Mexico Room is the largest and richest of the museum. Among the Aztec deities, such as the earth goddess Coatlicue and the lord of flowers Xochipilli, one sees the famous Aztec Sun Stone. The basalt monolith from 1479 weighs 24 tons and has a diameter of 3.35 meters. The stone shows representations of the four great catastrophes that struck the Aztecs during their migrations.
There is also the Toltec Hall with a powerful column of atlases from the Temple of Tula. In the Oaxaca Hall you can see, among other things, a replica of the early stone images of the dancers (Danzantes) of Monte Albán.
The burial chamber of the Temple of the Inscriptions was reconstructed true to life - the original in Palenque is not accessible. Impressive is the jade mask of Pakal.
On the upper floor you can visit an exhibition about the present-day Indian peoples with traditional clothing, handicrafts and objects of daily use.
On the way to the Basilica de Guadeloupe, you pass the 50-story World Trade Center and Plaza México, the largest bullring in the world with 64,000 seats.
South of the Basilica is the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, a symbol of modern Mexico. In the center of the square are the ruins of the Templo Mayor of Tlaelolco. A church was built from the stones of the temple.
The old basilica of GUADELOUPE from 1533 was temporarily closed because of danger of collapse, but after renovation it is now accessible again. It was too small for the many faithful anyway, so a new basilica was built for 10,000 visitors. Pilgrims push their way past the image of the Blessed Virgin on a "conveyor belt".
On December 12, hundreds of thousands of faithful come to commemorate the miraculous apparition of the Virgin in the 16th century. An image of the Virgen de Guadeloupe can be seen almost everywhere in homes, stores, buses, cabs, etc.
The best time to go to the San Angel district is on Saturdays for the Basar del Sábado. The small stores offer handicrafts of upscale quality. Outside on the square there are also many stalls with all kinds of colorful handicrafts from all over Mexico, which are often bought as souvenirs.
In San Angel you can still find beautiful villas in the narrow streets with the cobblestones, it is rather an upscale residential area. Worth seeing are the Iglesia del Carmen and the Iglesia San Jacinto in a beautiful garden, where a wedding just took place. The Casa del Riso also in this square is a pretty 18th century colonial house with a wall fountain made of hundreds of colorful dishes.
We continued on to the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco. The canals are a popular destination - especially on weekends - for locals. Families rent a brightly painted boat, eat and drink, and listen to music. For a Mariacha chapel can also be ordered on the boat.
Our guide suggested us to do it like the locals. So we bought something delicious to eat at the stalls and took it with us on the boat. We could buy the cool beer to go with it from the boat guide. We didn't have to organize musicians as well, because the mariachi sounds could already be heard from the other boats.
On the way back to the center we passed the famous university. When it was founded in the 1950s, it was considered an architectural marvel with its colors, murals and sculptures. The mosaics have faded a bit with time but are still worth seeing. Across the street is the stadium where the 1968 Olympics were held.
There are the many colorful street markets in the districts with sometimes dubious goods on offer - but always interesting. At the Plaza Santo Domingo - only four cross streets away from the Zócalo - under the arcades there are still wage earners who write letters for people who don't know how to write. In the late evening, many mariachi musicians play at Plaza Garibaldi. However, it might be better to go there on a guided tour, because the area is not entirely safe.
The huge TEOTIHUACÁN complex is located about 50 km northeast of Mexico City, and almost nothing is known about the builders. The Aztecs discovered the remains of the city, where once 200,000 people lived, and named it Teotihuacán.
Teotihuacán, the city of Quetzacóatl, is one of the most important archaeological centers in Mexico. The huge sun and moon pyramids are located in a high valley.
Entering the site through the main entrance, the first thing you see is the Templo de Quetzalcóatl. The facade is decorated with reliefs of feathered serpents, and between them you can see masks of the rain god Tlaloc.
From here, an approximately 3 km long and 43 m wide path "Calzada de los Muertos" leads directly to the pyramid of the moon. So good footwear is necessary, and we also bought nice big Mexican hats to protect us from the sun.
The Pirámida de la Luna is 45 m high and much lower than the Pyramid of the Sun. In the square in front of the Pyramid of the Moon we see four other pyramid-shaped structures. The most beautiful is the Palacio del Quetzalpapálotl, named after the butterfly paintings there.
Also noteworthy is the Palacio de los Jaguares with frescoes of these big cats. From there you enter the Templo de las Conchas Emplumadas (feathered snails). The walls are decorated with colorful representations of snails, flowers, birds and shells.
The "highlight" of this complex is certainly the Pirámida del Sol. This pyramid, built in 100 A.D., has huge dimensions: the base is 225 by 225 meters and the height is 64 meters. The work on the structure lasted at least two decades. Since neither draught animals nor wheels were known at that time, all the material had to be brought by load carriers.
One can climb the pyramid via 248 steep steps. The steps become narrower and narrower, and at the end you walk up with the many people - most of them locals - quasi in "single file". But at the top you are rewarded with a fantastic view over the whole complex.
On the flight from Mexico City to Acapulco we had - thanks to good weather and no smog - a beautiful view of the 5500 m high Popocatépetl and the 5220 m high Iztaccihuatl.
ACAPULCO is something like the "classic" among the resorts. We stayed in Acapulco in one of the luxury hotels with a fantastic view of the bay, a very nice hotel complex with many plants and flowers. Unfortunately, because of the red tide (red algae) we could not swim in the sea there.
There was just a medical congress at the hotel and one evening there was a huge party at the pools. We made ourselves "fancy" and smuggled in there ( = gatecrashing) - there were good margaritas and pinas coladas...
Already in the times of the Spanish conquerors Acapulco was a main transshipment point at the Pacific. Goods arrived by ships from the Far East, were brought by mules to Veracruz on the Gulf Coast, and from there were shipped to Spain. With Mexico's independence from Spain, the place lost importance.
Then in the 1940s - after the opening of an airfield, the place quickly became a stomping ground of rich and famous Americans. In the meantime, however, the "normal" tourists also stay here more and more. A lot has been invested in new hotel facilities and a marina. Acapulco has become a city of millions.
There is a well functioning bus service. So we went by bus also to the old town. At Playa Caleta some of the early splendor hotels still exist. The Zócalo is of course also the center of the city. There is also a cathedral and the Mercado de Artesanias. There are numerous restaurants where you can eat well and cheaply, as many locals also come here.
An attraction in the evening is of course the rocky bay La Quebrada, where the clavadistas (rock jumpers) plunge headfirst into the depths from the 40 m high cliffs. It is very important that they dive in at the exact moment when the narrow crevice has filled with enough water. We went there by bus and then had to walk a long path along the sea - was not very inviting in the dark...
From the old town to our hotel you could walk along the 11 km long beach promenade Costera Miguel Alemàn. Partly the waves came up so high that we even got wet on the promenade.
Of course there are also many shopping malls according to the American model, hotels and restaurants can be found in all price ranges.
South of Acapulco is Puerto Marques at a beautiful bathing bay, where mainly locals stay. You can go there by bus.
From Acapulco we flew over the Sierra Madre del Sur to Oaxaca. From the airport in OAXACA we took a cab to our hotel - an old colonial house in the old town.
Oaxaca with now about 500,000 inhabitants was founded by the Spanish in 1521. Due to its location at an altitude of 1500 m, the climate here is pleasant. The cityscape is characterized by Spanish colonial architecture with the one-story patio houses. Numerous descendants of the Zapotecs and Mixtecs live in this area of Mexico.
Unfortunately, our stay in Oaxaca was somewhat marred by the striking teachers who demonstrated in the streets around the Zócalo and also slept in tents and on cardboard on the sidewalks for days. Apparently they are completely underpaid, as they told us. You can imagine what it looked like in the streets....
Oaxaca is famous for its markets. The Mercado de Abastos is held on Saturdays and is huge with everything from fruits and vegetables to furniture, clothes and household goods. This is where mostly the locals shop.
Near the Zócalo, the markets Mercado Benito Juárez and Mercado 20 de Noviembre also have a rich offer, including arts and crafts.
As is actually the case everywhere in Mexico, the Zócalo with its music pavilion is also the center of the city. Here is the Palacio de Gobierno and the cathedral with a baroque facade, whose construction began in 1554 and was not completed until the 18th century.
The most spectacular of Oaxaca's churches is the 16th century Santo Domingo Convent Church. The facade of the baroque church is flanked by two mighty towers. Inside the church, one is almost dazzled by the magnificent gold and stucco work. The showpiece is the Capilla del Rosario, completed in 1734.
Just across the street is the Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca. The museum building used to be a monastery and has been lavishly restored.
Worth seeing is especially the Mixtec treasure, which was found in the famous tomb No. 7 on Monte Albán. It consists of jade and gold jewelry, alabaster vessels, death masks and other grave goods. Oaxacan handicrafts and an ethnographic collection are also housed here, giving an idea of indigenous life
riking teachers, and with lots of music also as one imagines life in Mexican cities.
From Oaxaca we made a trip to Mitla. Before that we visited the tree of TULE in the small village Santa Maria del Tule - 10 km away from Oaxaca. The 40 m high Sabino tree has a circumference of 58 m and is said to be 2000 years old.
MITLA was built in the 10th century after the fall of Monte Alban and was probably the necropolis of the Zapotecs. As wall decorations, small and roof tile-sized stones were joined in ever-changing shapes to form geometric ornaments. The most beautiful is the facade decoration in the inner courtyard of the Patio de las Grecas, which is particularly effective due to the play of light and shadow.
For the meander-like mosaic, it is said that about 100,000 stones were worked to create the diamond and meander pattern - a remarkable pre-Hispanic architecture. In the Patio de las Tumbas there are two burial chambers, one containing the Columna de la Vida.
On the way back to Oaxaca we stopped at a Mexclan (Tequila) factory. We could taste different kinds, also the one with the famous "worm" ...
Afterwards we visited a carpet weaving factory, where only natural colors are used. All this was explained to us in detail. Since we liked the carpets and the way they were made, we decided to buy them, even though they were not very cheap. Trading was not possible "buy it or leave it".
A trip to MONTE ALBÁN should be made as early as possible in the morning before it gets too hot. Monte Albán is the former cult center of the Zapotecs and one of the most magnificent and oldest pyrramid sites in Mexico.
The crest of Monte Albán at 2000 meters above sea level was cleared and temples and palaces were built on the 200 by 300 meter area. From the highest point of this complex - the south platform - one has a fantastic distant view.
Not only ceremonies were held here, there were also living quarters for the simple population. The foundation around 500 BC was probably made by the Olmecs. The Zapotecs built new magnificent structures, but later abandoned the city completely. Subsequently, the Mixtecs made this place their burial ground. There are over 150 tombs in Monte Albán.
The entrance to the Gran Plaza is located between the Jugo de Pelota (ball court) and the North Platform. The building in the center of the main plaza probably served as an observatory. Inside the building of the dancers (Danzantes) are relief panels with Olmec-looking human figures in strange postures.
Worth seeing are the frescoes of, among others, the rain god Cocijo in tomb number 104. The 200 objects from tomb number 7 - known as the "Treasure of Monte Albán" - are exhibited in the Museo de las Culturas in Oaxaca. Our guide on this excursion was - like many people in Oaxaca - a descendant of the Zapotecs.
For the onward flight to Cancún we had two options: either via Mexico City or a flight with 5 stopovers. We decided for the first variant.
Due to the "detour" via Mexico City it was a long flight from Oaxaca to Cancún and we arrived there late in the afternoon. We took a rental car and looked for a place to stay in Cancún.
The next day we went to VALLADOLID, a city with about 40,000 inhabitants. This place was an important city on the Yucatan Peninsula at the beginning of the 20th century, and you can still see many beautiful houses in Spanish colonial style. Around the Zocaló you can find accommodation in old colonial buildings. Worth seeing is the cathedral and above the city on a hill the oldest church of Yucatan "San Bernardino de Siena" with the monastery "Convento de Sisal".
Inside and outside the city there are several cenotes, small wells that were part of an earlier canal system for the irrigation of gardens and fields.
In Mexico City, our guide had recommended that we visit EK-BALAM, which was still little known and little visited. Unfortunately, it was already closed at 5 pm in the afternoon, so we didn't have too much time left. We were the only visitors.
On the buildings you can see sculptures and stone carvings that are unique in Mayan art. The site was protected by two defensive walls, probably because of the then powerful Chichen Itza. The entrance to the multi-story so-called "acropolis" looks like the mouth of a demon, the stucco facade richly decorated. Next to it are the twin pyramids.
We left in the morning as early as possible in order not to arrive too late in CHJICHEN ITZA Itza - i.e. before all the tourist buses arrive. .
Chichen Itza is the most important, largest and best restored Mayan city in Yucatan and was founded as early as 450 AD. However, one can also notice the influence of the Toltecs in the typical representations of warriors, eagles and feathered serpents (embodiment of Quetzalcóatl).
In the 13th century, Chichen Itza lost its importance and was largely abandoned at the time of the Spanish conquest.
The site is overlooked by the Templo del Kukulcán (El Castillo). There are 4 staircases with 91 steps each, adding the platform gives the number 365. At the foot of the staircases you can see snake heads with open maws. Twice a year - on March 21 and September 23 - a great number of people come here to observe how the shadows cast by the sun give the impression that the snakes are slowly winding their way down from the temple.
We were still able to climb up and down the steep and narrow steps with a 25 degree incline to the unsecured platform. It was sometimes very funny to watch the people as they made their descent on all fours and backwards. It is now illegal to climb the pyramid, apparently there have been deaths. Inside the older pyramid below, you can marvel at the famous red jaguar throne.
The Juego de Pelota (ball court) is the largest and best preserved in the country. The stone rings can still be seen on the long boundary walls. The rules for this ball game are still quite mysterious. It is quite likely, however, that the losers were decapitated. Above this square is the Jaguar Temple with an imaginative facade.
On the pyramid Templo de los Guerreros (Warriors), 12 meters high, there are decorated columns that originally supported the roof. On the platform there is a bowl on a Chacmool figure that has received the hearts of the sacrificed. Next to it are the atlases "Grupo de Mil Columnos" (Columns of a Thousand Columns).
In the south of the complex, the most interesting building is El Caracol (Snail House). A narrow spiral staircase leads up to a tower. This building was probably used as an observatory for astronomical measurements.
The Nun's House (Edifico de las Monjas) is decorated with masks of the rain god Chac.
The cenotes in Yucatan were mainly used for water supply, some wells were also used for rituals. Among the offerings found in the Cenote Sagrado in Chichen Itza were skeletons as well as objects made of jade and gold.
MERIDA with over 1 million inhabitants. the capital of Yucatan, was founded in 1542 on the ruins of a Mayan city. It was also the economic center and the most important place in Yucatan. Due to the sisal boom, the millionaires of the time built magnificent Belle Epoque villas. State and ecclesiastical power reigned here, and a cathedral, monastery and administrative palaces were built.
The city center was once enclosed by walls, so the city center is densely built and the streets are narrow. Only two of the city gates are still preserved.
The center of this lively city is the Zócalo. There is also the Catedral de San Ildefonso from 1595, built from stones of a former Maya temple. On the opposite side is the 19th century Palacio del Gobierno. The walls of the ceremonial hall are painted with murales from Yucatan history.
On the other side of the square is the Casa de Montejo, one of Mexico's finest colonial houses from the 16th century, owned by a family for several generations, now a bank.
On the Paseo de Montejo - north of the center - there are other beautiful villas from the turn of the century. In Merida there are of course also many colorful markets, which are visited mainly by the locals. Since Merida is something like the "city of hammocks", we of course bought a beautiful handmade natural colored hammock from Kenia, an indigenous Mexican woman with a small store.
What a hot and humid climate Merida has - supposedly the hottest city in the Yucatan - we were also to experience. In the courtyard of the university there was a concert late in the evening. It was still so hot there that the sweat was running down our faces. And then afterwards to the "ice-cooled" hotel...
From Merida we made a trip north to PROGRESO, a former fishing village with a small harbor and a very long pier. There has been tourism here since the 1950s, and apparently many American retirees live here as well. American cruisers moor here, and they are certainly the reason for the numerous souvenir stores in town. When we were there, there was no big ship in the harbor, and therefore the whole place seemed a bit sleepy to us.
On the way from Merida to Uxmal we passed KABAH. Directly on the road we saw the archway El Arco de Kabah, a ceremonial gate of the Mayas. From there a 15 km long paved road once led to Uxmal. Remarkable is the Codz-Poop building or Palacio de las Máscaras with a facade of 250 masks of the rain god.
UXMAL was built during a total of 5 construction phases, beginning in the 6th century. Most of the Mayan buildings date back to the 9th and 10th centuries with rich facade decorations.
Behind the entrance, the first thing you see is the 35 m high Pirámide del Avdivino (fortune teller). The complex consists of five temples grouped around an inner courtyard - Cuadrángulo de las Monjas.
Uxmal was dedicated to the rain god Chac, because since there are no rivers like cenotes here, but only cisterns, water was especially valuable. In the stone decorations of the buildings one finds again and again masks of the rain god.
A ball court leads to the Palacio del Gobernador, from where you have a magnificent panoramic view. This building is a masterpiece of Mayan architecture with balanced proportions and sophisticated light and shadow effects. The facade is made of over 20,000 stones.
The Casa de las Tortugas (Turtle House) is decorated with turtles, which were also associated with rain by the Mayans. Behind it, you can still see the remains of the Gran Pirámide and the facade of "El Palomar" (Dove House), which was probably used for astronomical observations.
An impressive building is the quadrangle - the elongated building of the "Nunnery" Also here you can see stone decoration symbols of the rain god.
From Uxmal we drove on to CAMPECHE. This city with about 250,000 inhabitants is the oldest Spanish city on the Yucatan Peninsula. The harbor was protected from pirate attacks in colonial times with huge bastions and walls (2.5m thick and 8m high). From here, riches were shipped to Europe and naturally aroused covetousness.
After independence, Campeche lost its importance as a major port. The wall was almost demolished at the end of the 19th century, only the fortress towers remained. The Parque Principal from colonial times is still the center of the city. Here also stands the Catedral de la Concepción with a plain facade and tall twin towers.
The downtown area with its colorful houses is very pretty to look at. Of the colonial splendors, especially noteworthy are the Casa del Cultura with a Moorish facade of handmade tiles and the Mansión Carvajal with a beautiful facade, Moorish arches and lots of wrought iron.
It is a beautiful drive to VILLAHERMOSA, almost always along the sea. Passing the Laguna de Términos, mangrove forests and over two toll bridges we went to Ciudad del Carmen. On the way we had a military check twice. The first time they only checked the passports, the second time they even checked the luggage.
Villahermosa, the capital of Tabasco, has experienced an oil boom that has rapidly increased the population. Due to the economic boom, money was now also invested to attract more tourists. The city has modern buildings made of glass and steel, large parks, gardens, museums and the shopping center "Tabasco 2000", which is especially popular with locals.
In the old center of Villahermosa, the Spanish houses have been restored, art nouveau lanterns have been placed, and it has been repaved.
The main attraction of the city is the extensive Parque Museo La Venta located on a lagoon. Olmec heads weighing up to 40 tons were brought to the park with a jungle vegetation. One can see 32 monumental sculptures, including colossal heads of Olmec rulers over 2 meters high. The Olmec culture is probably the oldest advanced culture of America.
To go alone to CHIAPAS was often advised against - much too dangerous… In retrospect, we can not confirm this, we felt comfortable and safe all the time.
Chiapas is inhabited by a majority of indigenous people, most of whom live in abject poverty. The agrarian reform carried out in Mexico did not come about in Chiapas, because here the large landowners still control the land. These unacceptable conditions also gave rise to the various riots in the 1990s under the command of Subcomandante Marcos. In recent years, however, it has become calmer and so we enjoyed very much to travel this breathtakingly beautiful highland with mountains, rivers and waterfalls. And we didn't regret it for a minute!
The distance from Villahermosa to San Cristobal de las Casas is about 300 km, most of it on very winding roads. We then made a detour to the small town of Chiapa de Corzo on the Grijlava River. From there, boat tours are conducted into the Canon del Sumidero with the up to 1000 m high rock walls. They wanted to have a certain number of people to start the tour. After one hour there were still three people missing - so we had to give up, because the boat trip would have taken about 2.1/2 hours. And afterwards we had to drive on winding roads to San Cristobal de las Casa.
We arrived in SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS in the late afternoon and quickly noticed that there is a pleasant climate at 2200 m altitude. We stayed in a posada - an old colonial house with real flair.
For the most part, indigenous people live in San Cristobal, but there are also many dropouts from the "western world". The accommodations and restaurants have moderate prices. Many backpackers still come here, although the place is certainly no longer an insider tip.
San Cristobal still has an original atmosphere, especially because of the Indian population in their colorful costumes, mostly Tzetales and Tzotziles from the high plateau. They still speak their own language besides Spanish.
San Cristobal is the best preserved colonial city in Mexico. Between colonial mansions and baroque churches there are many whitewashed one-story houses with red clay tiles. In the different quarters of the city, traditional wrought iron and wood carvings are still made.
A steep stone staircase leads to the San Cristobal church, from where you have a view of the city and the mountains.
At the Zócalo there are some beautiful colonial buildings, as well as the city hall and the cathedral. There is a large market in the square every day. Here, Indio women in their traditional costumes sit everywhere, making and selling their goods. One finds here really very beautiful knotted carpets and also pottery.
The Templo de Santo Domingo, built from 1547 - 1560 is a beautiful sacred building with a beautifully decorated facade with the Habsburg coat of arms. Inside there are gilded altars.
SAN JUAN CHAMULA is the most easily accessible and well known Indian village near San Cristobal de las Casas. Here is the religious center of the Chamula Indians who live in the surrounding mountains. The religion of these indigenous people is a mixture of Catholic and pre-Hispanic creeds.
If you want to go to the church located at the Zócalo, you need to get a written permission beforehand, for which you have to pay a fee, at the city hall. Photography is strictly forbidden, and this is also controlled. The atmosphere in the church is more than peculiar. Colorful woven cloths hang from the walls, the floor is completely covered with pine needles. Indians squat on the floor, eat and drink, light candles, sing, pray and also talk animatedly.
On the Zócalo in front of the church was a small market with rather sparse offerings. This makes us think, we have everything in abundance and can buy...
From San Cristobal de las Casas to PALENQUE it is 370 km. You drive through a beautiful jungle landscape and pass small villages. One could think this is an absolutely relaxed drive.
If only there were not the many over-high "Topes" (chicanes). You have to be careful not to drive too fast. From San Cristobal to the next bigger town Ocosingo - just under a hundred kilometers - I had already counted 80, then I stopped counting...
A side trip is worthwhile to the waterfalls of AGUA AZUL, which belong to the most beautiful of Mexico. The falls are located in the middle of lush green vegetation. A rather muddy path leads along the cascades over narrow bridges and stone slabs. The water of the Rio Xax pours over rock steps on a length of 2 km into several large basins. There are some nice places for picnics or simple restaurants.
We also visited the 40 m high MISOL-HA waterfalls. The waterfall here plunges into a lake surrounded by the lush green of the jungle. There is a small hiking trail behind the water curtain, where you can get quite wet due to mist and splashing water.
Then we drove to the town of PALENQUE, where we went to our and whiled away the afternoon in hammocks by the pool. It's way too hot here at this time of day for any kind of activity, and the place isn't particularly attractive either. We visited the Mayan pyramids of Palenque very early the next morning to avoid the heat.
These pyramids are among the most famous in Mexico, located in dense jungle on the banks of the Otulum River. This is a truly fabulous place with the view over the rainforest, the pyramids, temples and palaces and the seemingly endless plain towards the Gulf of Mexico.
Construction of these ceremonial sites began in the 7th century. Why the Mayas left this city-state after about 400 years is still not known.
The most famous building is certainly the Templo de las Inscripciones (Inscriptions). A steep staircase leads to this temple, 21 meters high, over eight platforms. It has five entrances, and on the middle wall you can see 615 hieroglyphs - which explains the name.
Inside, the sarcophagus of the priest-hierarch Pacal was discovered, covered with a 4.5-ton tomb slab.
Across from this temple you can see the Great Palace (El Palacio), the largest building complex of the complex, with courtyards, passages and tunnels. Numerous buildings are grouped on a platform around four courtyards. The four-story 15 m tower probably served as an observatory.
The walls of the palace are decorated with stucco masks and figures. In the courtyards there are stone sculptures and hieroglyphs on the steps. Behind the palace there is a ball court. Further there are the North Temple and the Temple of the Count.
On the other side of the river are three more temples: the Templo de la Cruz, the Templo del Sol and the Templo de la Cruz Foliada.
We then stayed overnight on the way between "nowhere and nowhere" in the beautifully situated Ecolodge Chicanná. It would have been very idyllic and relaxing there, if there hadn't been so many biting flies.
On the way to Chetumal on the Carretera Federal 185 there are still several Mayan sites. We visited BÉCAN, a well-preserved site where we were all alone in the early morning. This ceremonial site is surrounded by a moat 2 km long and 16 m wide, probably as protection against enemy attacks. In addition to a structure with open stairs, there are gates, false towers and a ball court.
Our next overnight stop was in CHETUMAL at the mouth of the Rio Hondo. This city with about 125,000 inhabitants was founded in 1898. In the typical Mexican center you can still find old wooden houses. Worth seeing is the museum La Cultura Maya.
In the bay of Chetumal live manatees, which are protected here. The water here was milky green and there are hardly any beaches. Good fish can be eaten in the restaurants a little outside directly on the sea.
It is not too far from here to the border with Belize. We were told, however, that a detour just beyond the border would not be worthwhile. Chetumal is often visited as a starting point for the rather unknown Mayan sites nearby.
