Music to listen to on the Panama Posse 

CAFÉ TACVBA

Café Tacvba is a band from Ciudad Satélite, Mexico.  The band took its final name from a coffee shop “el Café de Tacuba” located in downtown Mexico City. The cafe, which opened in 1912 and had its heyday in the 1940s and 1950s, was representative of the Pachuco scene at the time, something the band would later acknowledge as an influence. The Café de Tacuba is still in operation as a coffee shop and restaurant on Tacuba Street, in Mexico City’s Historic Center.

Café Tacvba – Eres (Video Oficial)

Their musical style covers a wide variety of genres, though it is most commonly labeled as Latin Alternative/Rock en Español. Their music has been heavily influenced by Mexico’s indigenous population and folk music traditions, but also by punk and electronic music and other bands on the Mexico City scene. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of their music is Albarrán’s nasal voice, which, combined with his impressive lung capacity (as demonstrated on “La Ingrata”, a homage of norteño music), makes for a very distinctive sound. They sing entirely in Spanish but have a significant Anglophone following regardless.

Ho'Okipa at the local Surf Camp in Nicaragua 

And, after a bunch of misinformation about requiring a special $20 Zarpe, good for only 48 hours, every time I want leave the Marina to empty my holding tanks and make water, from the port captain to the Marina… Well, at my request the US Embassy sent me this notice: “con base a la Resolución DGTA Nº. 026-2015 para autorizar el descargue de aguas de lastre en las aguas jurisdiccionales de los puertos de la República de Nicaragua, y si su tanque lastre es de 40 galones, no existe inconveniente en que realice el descargue semanalmente a 5 millas de la costa y comunique de previo a la Capitanía de Puerto de la Fuerza Naval de Corinto”.

 

As you can read above, if the tank capacity is 40 gallons there is no “inconvenient” to empty the tank weekly at 5 miles from the coast…

 

So, now my tank is  40 gallons😜😱😎🌈

🇵🇦  PUNTA MALA, PANAMA

🇵🇦  PUNTA MALA, PANAMA WEATHER 

PUNTA MALA, PANAMA gust and wind forecast in PREDICT WIND – January through May  l

There are 2 anchorages to wait for slack tide and good conditions before entering or leaing the bay of Panama 

12 nm  to the SW Ensenada Venao
10 nm to the N Isla Iguana

 The weather seminar video is online under https://panamaposse.com/seminars 

PUNTA MALA, PANAMA view of the cape 

The most difficult part, other than many mis-charted rocks and reefs, is of course the aptly named Punta Mala and the push north against prevailing winds and current to Marina Vista Mar – we opted to go around Punta Mala at slack tide and quickly had to tuck into Isla Iguana to avoid the following steep chop of rip tide currents and headwinds. Read the anchorage details in Good Nautical for details.

We wait for a coastal low and used the lifting southerly winds for the final 50 nm push (bash) to the Marina Vista Mar – this strategy works between January – May with predominant northerlies.

Another option is to tack out and back to Islas Perlas.

🇲🇽  LA QUEBRADA CLIFF DIVERS ACAPULCO MEXICO

 🇲🇽  LA QUEBRADA CLIFF DIVERS ACAPULCO MEXICO

Nice cliff divers in Acapulco today with Toketee… quick video to watch

La Quebrada (Spanish for “gulch” or “ravine”) is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Acapulco, Mexico. Divers entertain tourists by jumping off either of two ledges on the cliff, one that is 40 feet (12 m) high and the top one which is 80 feet (24 m) high. The divers must calculate the right moment to jump to catch an incoming wave and avoid serious injury or death. Occasionally jumpers dive with a torch. Most of the divers come from the family of Quebrada divers. Although cliff diving at La Quebrada had taken place for many years, it was not until 1934 that the La Quebrada Cliff Divers was formed.

“Fun in Acapulco”  
Elvis Presley & Ursula Andress

“It’s a pleasant, idyllic movie that never takes itself seriously and moves briskly under Richard Thorpe’s direction. The excellent color photography and the balmy atmosphere of the resort—the luxurious hotels, the beaches and the quaint byways—were positively eye-popping.”

Elvis actually filmed his scenes for the 1963 movie on a Hollywood lot and at a California hotel; Despite singing a song in Spanish, Presley was not exactly “El Rey” in Mexico at the time, as far as officials were concerned. After a newspaper columnist revealed in the late ’50s that he had called Mexico “a distasteful country” and was accused of making ugly remarks about Mexican women during an interview, anti-Elvis protestors rose up, and his albums were reportedly burned by protestors. But Elvis’ rebellious image also fueled rowdy youth, who caused a “riot” at the premiere of King Creole. And his music was a spark that ignited Mexican rock.

"Fun in Acapulco"   Elvis Presley

The book “Refried Elvis: The Rise of the Mexican Counterculture”  claims that quote was fabricated. According to author Eric Zolov, “Herbe Pompeyo of Polygram Records in Mexico City claims that a high-up Mexican political figure wanted to contract Presley for a private party, for which he sent the performer a blank check to fill in as he wished. 

ACAPULCO BAY

Presley, according to the story, returned the blank check, so the politico, extremely offended, invented the storyline about Elvis not liking Mexican women.”  More juicy stuff here >>
