Jorge Bueno in Puerto Vallarta

Hi, I am in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. We flew in on a private airstrip on the other side of town away from the main airport, no customs no waiting in line no B/S. Check it out, this is the company that arranged the private air service. No, I don't own a jet but a corporation that I work with, has access to one within 5 hours notice. But it's very pricey, you can buy a single family home in Detroit, MI for the price of a one way trip! Los Angeles to New York for about $25k one way! Yikes! If I had to pay for it, I may just go first class! Ok, Back to Puerto Vallarta, I am staying at the "Canto del Sol Hotel" right on the beach. I had dinner Thursday night at "El Palomar de los Gonzales." This place is at the top of a hill with an awesome patio/terrace with a view of the bay. I was with a local judge and other friends. We are trying to organize a benefit concert for the city. Last night I dined at "Los Milagros" a restaurant in old town. We were accompanied by people from the consulate's office. We all ended up at a Karaoke place until 4am. This morning we had brunch at "Cafe Le Bistro" in downtown. The entire restaurant is like a huge tropical patio, a very cool spot. From here we go to Guadalajara for a music showcase and to interview a producer that we may do music with. If you drive, it's about 4 hours away, but about 1 hour by air. I'm staying with family that lives in Zapopan, in a community named Puerta de Hierro, it's really nice there, I love it! After that I head back to Los Angeles, CA. I'll be back on on Sunday. In time for the "Latin Grammy's" at the Staples Center! I'll be in the audience. See you soon! Happy Valentines Day!
