Rio Moja Huevo. Get it?

Rio Moja Huevo. Get it?

“Oh my”, as a friends always says when they see the log locks of my past.  Ha ha, here I am with my cheap binoculars and my cheap camera with a shirt I’d been wearing since high school (15 years prior), and that hippie hair.  Rio Moja Huevo. What does it mean?  Tell me in … Continue reading

Bedbugs on the march!
