What's Trending In Beachwear

Update On the Residency Cards:
I went through a box of miscellaneous stuff in my office and found our old passports! I have no idea why the US Embassy mailed them directly to that box. OK, I apologize for saying we never received them. Anyway, San Geraldo will make copies of our old passports and we can head back this week to complete the process. What a relief! Coming up with other documentation was turning into a major problem.

Hot Style at the Beach
I was walking on the beach the other day when I spotted someone in the distance who was exposing so much of his hind quarters that he needn't have bothered wearing a bathing suit.

Major plumber's crack (commonly referred to as builder's bum in parts of Great Britain). It's also called "hucha" in Spanish, which is the word for the slot in a piggy bank or vending machine.

Since, as you might remember, I enjoy sharing collected images of huchas (click here and here), I began snapping away. But when I zoomed in I was even more surprised by what I saw.



THE LATEST IN BEACH FASHION: THE SUIT WITH THE BUILT-IN HUCHA.

Truth be told, this is just a pocket belt to hold all the loot he finds while metal-detecting. But I'm much more entertained by my own version of reality.

  1. Whew! So glad that you ran across your old passports! I usually think of myself as having a pretty good, and clear, memory, but this happens to me sometimes, too -- just so sure that I remember where I put something, or whether I ever received something or other, etc., and later find out that I was wrong. Yikes :)

    I much enjoyed yesterday's post about that castle, too... crazy! What a place, though!

      And Jerry keeps thanking me! I told him it's nice to screw up (I'm the one who tossed them in a box), cause a bunch of stress for us both, and then get credited with saving the day. I'm also famous for putting things in safe places -- safe from even me -- never to be found again.

  2. hee hee hee! I like the term "hucha"; wonder what would happen if you slipped a $20 USD bill into his hucha? ;-b

      And remember the "h" in hucha is silent, so it sounds like "oocha" -- even better! You're awfully generous. I'd prefer to just slip in a small coin, but it would get lost in there.

      "Special" is how it might be described.

  7. No fair. I clicked on the post title on my dashboard expecting to see men in BIKINIS or SPEEDOS. Ugh!

      Oh, if I were to let loose and snap and share photos of some of the men on the beach and around town, you'd be moving here in a heartbeat!

  8. I admit when I saw the first photo I thought it would turn out to be an illusion of some sort -- thanks be to WhomEver!

    And glad to hear the old passports turned up.

  9. Life here is so dull compared to your life and observations.... however... we are in the foothills of the Appalachians, and butt crack seems to be a fashion statement here in these here hills....

      Oh, some of the things I see that I can't discreetly get pictures of. Thanks for not sharing what you see there!

      So am I. We saw one on the train today that, as I said to Jerry, was less a crack and more a chasm.

  11. That swimsuiti is very misleading from a distance.

  12. Hmmmm. I see what you mean. And close up or distance it's NOT a pretty sight!

      I know! I didn't notice the other guy until I downloaded my photos. I would have tried harder to get good shots of him while pretending it was all about the other guy.

  14. I hope that look doesn't start trending!
