Italy and Back to CDMX

I got back to Mexico City six days ago after a trip to Italy. It was an idyllic trip, pretty much what you would imagine as a traditional Italian vacation. Amazing meals overloaded with as much cured meat and cheese appetizers as you could handle, followed by delicious truffle-laden pasta courses, and somehow finding room …

Cabo

My birthday celebrations continued in Los Cabos as my friend Jeff planned a trip for our friends.  I’m not big on celebrating my birthday, so having essentially a week-long celebration was a little weird, but I’m grateful to be able to use it as an excuse to hang out with friends. As I get older …

Turning 40

Last Friday was my birthday, and it was a big one numerically.  I considered not wanting to reveal my new age in the title out of a sense of sounding old for the first time.  Age, the significance of a new decade, etc. are all constructs and arbitrary, but it’s hard to shake random beliefs …

Back in Mexico City

As the title states, I arrived back in Mexico City after a few weeks in Utah, and another month in Puerto Rico.  Because I don’t tweet, use Facebook, and post perhaps twice a year on Instagram, I realized my updates are more sporadic, and large gaps in my travels are obscured now.  Why am I …

In Mexico City

I’m going to start this post with my thoughts from 1.5 weeks ago when I started my pre-trip blog, but never finished it: “I’m unbelievably excited and ready to go to Mexico City.  I leave this coming Friday, and I’m staying until June 1 at a minimum.  I would say for the majority of trips …

Back to Isabela

It’s been a good few weeks here in Puerto Rico.  I finally built enough confidence in my stock trading algorithms; confident that they will run automated and make essentially no mistakes, and confident that they will earn expected value.  The markets have coincidentally been behaving oddly since I got things running, but I made money …

Back to Work

Another solid week here in PR.  I was all excited to blog about it yesterday (Sunday) morning, but I went paddleboarding, had a great coffee, started reading, and then it was evening.  I’m currently in the  middle of my normal “workday”, but getting this out felt more important than my immediate research. When reflecting on …

One More Week

After talking with Jeff, I realized that I wasn’t clear in my blog last week about when I’m leaving for Colombia.  He thought it was imminent, but I’m actually not going until Feb 17th.  Sorry for any confusion.  If I get a post up next week, it should be my last one from the United …
