The games will be played here March 8-12.
It is great down here, and the people are very generous.
I guess it is part of their culture.
I can remember when Fernando and Vincente Romo came to me with a bag of peppers. They had heard that I like peppers, but these were supposed to be the hottest peppers on the face of the earth.
They didn’t think I could stand them.
They told me they had peppers that no human being could eat.
I put the first one in my mouth and said, “No picante.”
“No Picante,” they said.
I put another in my mouth and again said, “No Picante.”
“No picante?!” They couldnt believe it.
I did this again and again with about eight of those peppers, each time, no picante.
They just could not believe it.
As soon as they left my office I yelled at the top of my lungs that my mouth was on fire and ran to the shower. I opened my mouth and turned on the shower hoping it would help.
It felt like someone had poored gasoline in my mouth and lit a match.
