15 Tramos de Muerte


Enjoyed my toughest workout of the year Thursday.  Did 15 repeats of the “escaleras de muerte” for a total vertical climb of 3,245 feet.

On my 5th set, I was passed at the bottom of the stairs by a young female in moderate physical condition.  Ok, I’m an old geezer and can no longer hang with the 20 and 30 something athletes.  But, who was this young chick hauling bunz?

At approx stair #10, she pulled over in a fit of heaving and huffing.  As I climbed past her, she asked in very good English, “How many times are you doing this?”.  I replied in Spanish, “Terminando cinqo vezes y tengo diez mas vezes.”(finishing 5, 10 more).

She said that she can barely complete two climbs.  I encouraged her to keep working.

For her, I looked like The Flash.  For me, I suffered for almost 2 hours.  I would most likely be sucking the exhaust of my Colorado running and bicycling buddies if they attacked this 25% grade hill with me.

Get this.  Most people I know would be in major trouble attempting one climb on this stairway.  And their climb would include several lengthy stops.  They would also struggle going back down IF they reached the summit.

It does not matter if you are packing 50 extra lbs or have a six pack.  Go get physical today.  JUSTDOIT!

Hope to see that young lady out on the stairs next week.  You?


Grapes per Glass

How many grapes are in each drink?

Reading about wines I came across this information they had to share with you immediately.It’s about how many grapes are in each cup.

The truth is that this information makes me appreciate even more the wine and dedication that leads out from the harvest to the table …

75 Grapes ~ = A Cluster

5 clusters = 1 bottle (750 ml)

1 Bottle = 5 cups (150 ml per cup)

1 bunch = 1 cup = ~ 75 Grapes

Bajadock: for excellent health, I’m recommending a minimal daily clusterquaff of 5 bunches of grapes.

Casa Magnolia Restaurante


Visited Casa Magnolia Restaurante for the first time this week.  It has been on my to do list for a while.

Aaron, our host and server this evening, greeted us at the door.  We had our choice of seats on a slow Tuesday evening.

Menus, beverages, salsa, chips and bread all came quickly and with a smile.  The menu was huge, which is usually a bad indicator.  But, one of us liked the description of the chef’s special ceviche.


We then asked Aaron for his favorite dishes on the menu.  The stuffed chicken, Camarones Baja, ribeye, pescado a la plancha and tuna were among his recommendations.

We ordered the octopus appetizer, pescado a la plancha and the coktel campecana and shared.
