jalepeno sausage, wow. I just went to The Pub in Bogota and the pints just didnt satisfy my soul. See you in a week..
The Bogota company makes the for the Irish pub,I think their is pretty good,nice and hoppy but it doesn,t have the full bodied flavor of mine,the malt they use is from Chile but mine is from the UK and you just cant beat the quality of the British malt.When you make it down to Quito we,ll see if you agree!!!
One problem mate!!! this weekend we have the presidential elections and this means Dry law or ley seca,The Turtles head will be open as usual at 5pm,But it will look like we,re closed e.g it be all blacked out!!! Talk to the gaurd on the gate he,ll let you in to our Gringo speakeasy,WOO-HOO
do yourself a favor and hook up with albert while in quito. albert is the greatest and took time out of his day to call and then drive me to the tire shop for some much needed new rubber. if the food and isn't enough (and it is really good) that f-ing accent will be!
We have spent some time in Quito on our way South to Argentina and Albert´s pub is a great place to relax and have a pint. I´d go as far as
saying it is a must stop for any overland moto adventures while in Quito!
And as far as the proprietor is concerned well what can I say, but that Albert
is one of those individuals who make this riding lifestyle so much fun.
Be sure to need some assistance while in town, tires oil whatever, he´s
sure to help however he can and you might get to rip aroun town with
him, trying to catch up to him on his SM is a gas!
Albert, Dick and I had a great time at the Turtle's Head. We would highly recommend your place as a wonderful stop along the way. The warm and quaint atmospere were only exceeded by the beauty of your good looking girls. I'm sorry you have it so tough every day!. (Dick, the girls, and Bo)
With all the free publicity, courtesy in the main, it would appear, of passing US citizens, that Albert is getting from our HUBB. Pehaps the least he could do is either take out an advert on our web site like other commercial concerns that view bikers as a potential source of income do so supporting HU or reduce the very high prices that he charges to passing HU members.
p.s. Remember if you want really good up to date info on SA in general, Ecuador in particular and you cannot meet up with a fellow biker heading the other way, Ricardo Rocco is the man to ask.
