In this month I touched the shores of Cabo San Lucas and area passing Todos Santos on the way, flew back to for work in Kamloops, spent the Holidays with my mom and friends. Bonus flight cancelation by Westjet allowed me the opportunity drive the snowy Rocky Mountains back to Calgary.
Beginning of the month my time in La Paz had come to an end and before I flew back to Canada for work Clau, Lalo and I went to Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo for a few nights.

An unexpected Nashville Song Writers show for free (Dark Water Band, David Ryan Harris, Patrick Davis, others and Tim Nichols "Live Like We Were Dying" bought by Tim McGraw). But the drinks were $15usd each so...not so free and I was dumb enough to tip on top of our tips... Total 30% tipsy.

First in the King's younger years in black leathers at Grey Eagle Casino. Check it out, I'm still not sure if its his voice or not?
Then in his later Vegas years in a white jump suit. A really good show and good way to pass lunch time on New Years Eve Day...Oh and of course bingo!

Went to a little gathering in Deer Run near Fish Creek Park. At 12am we braved the cold to set off some fireworks at the park thanks to Christina's BF. And thanks to Vero for having a great meal and gathering!
