Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have set a new world record for simultaneous sombrero wearing in Florida:


That's 10 - count 'em - 10 sombreros in one very small El Taco Nazo restaurant.

It's a breathtaking sight to behold. And a photo that will go down in the pantheon of The Sombrero Project (and its subsequent parts (Dos, Tres and Quatro and Cinco) as among the most impressive feats ever captured on a compact digital storage disc.

Speaking of sombreros and restaurants, I've been meaning to mention that Rommie came back from Alaska with quite a find during his tour of Juneau, the state capital:


As much as I love Juneau - I'd live the rest of my life there, if I could - and as much as I love sombreros, it's hard to think that I'd have the willpower to stay away from eating there for every meal.

But then, sometimes I share too much.

On seeing your photo of El Sombrero on your Web site, I must visit tonight and order my usual tres enchiladas con pollo. I am a frequent visitor to this establishment in downtown Juneau, and I'm sure the owner, Fritz Moser (believe it or not, he's Mexican-American), will love to know his restaurant made your blog. Reading your blog in Juneau-Douglas, Alaska, where it's supposed to be 84 degrees today.

Take care,
Charles Bingham

Now I know what to buy myself if I ever drift south again. Or maybe two, to make a fetching bikini top.
Via con carne!
