My First Day In Puerto Vallarta...

I am in Puerto Vallarta right now, for my birthday. It is an amazing place here. I am loving it so far. I arrived yesterday, and had to wait at the hotel bar for my room. Turns out that was a good thing. I met a couple of ladies from Toronto. A mother and daughter. They were really funny and have been here many times. It was nice to get some insight on Puerto Vallarta, and they had a lot of good suggestions on things to do. A few minutes later an older couple sat next to me. They were from Oklahoma and he is an oil tycoon. They were funny too. They like to drink for sure! It was awesome though because they have some really fun times. They were telling me that in the town they live in, in Oklahoma, they will not order Coors for the week because the bar knows that they are out of town. I guess they are very popular in their town. They told lots of jokes. Some of them were dirty. I told the guy my Dad grew up in Nebraska. He said he was sorry. That´s what my Dad would say too. Mostly I hung out on the beach all day. The vendors on the beach offer a lot of drugs. They will try to sell you anything. Weed, cocaine, pills, one guy even offered me meth. That is not cool. I won´t be partaking in any of the drug offers this week. That would not be a good thing. After dinner last night I went to the bar and had a couple drinks. I met a couple from Idaho. They got engaged 3 weeks ago. I think they are thinking of having a quick wedding while they are here. They were really nice too. Not sure how it happened, but the conversation got a little weird. The lady started telling me about her dead Mother. I guess she was killed by a serial killer in 1976. They caught the guy and he is in prison, but her family is still trying to get the guy prosecuted for her Mother´s murder. I guess they have been building a case for years. I hope it works out for them. I guess I do know how the conversation started. We started talking about Dia de los Muertos. Then she told me that story. I´m here for my birthday, but to also get some photos of the Dia de los Muertos festivals. I got a lot of info about the things going on from the locals. So in a couple of days I will hopefully be taking a lot of photos. I´m planning on going to a cemetery at night, but some of the locals said it wasn´t a good idea. Others say it is fine. I guess I will see how I feel in a couple of days. There are some things going on Downtown, so I think I will be heading there for sure. I haven´t blogged for a long time. I´m kind of a failure with that lately. I don´t have any photos to post now because I´m on a computer in a little internet shop by the marina in Pureto Vallarta right now. I will try to post some when I get home. Maybe I will be better with the blogging when I get home. I hope so.
