As I was driving to El Patron on Southwest Blvd in Kansas City Thursday night I happened upon this. Some mighty colorful street art. Even in suboptimal light, it was pretty spectacular.
Then I thought I saw what looked like a plane. Perched on top of some buildings. Right on Southwest Blvd. Flying perilously close to the power lines!
How was I to know that one of my favorite coffee places in KC had a DC-3 aircraft suspended over their factory? I crossed several lanes of traffic and pulled over to investigate.
It was cool to look at from all angles.
Had I been to El Patron and had my classic margarita on the rocks (with a salted rim) before I found the plane it is very likely that I would not have taken this photo. As it was it made me a little bit dizzy looking up from that angle.
While I am at it, the guacamole at El Patron is second only to the guacamole I had in San Miguel de Allende at La Gruta. In other words, exceedingly good. I had the fish tacos which were sublime but will also admit that I ate one third of Joan's chicken enchillada with mole sauce. I only did it because she is going on vacation soon and wants to look good in her bathing suit. I don't plan to wear one anytime soon myself and just wanted to be helpful.
P.S. if my bouncing from topic to topic while reading this post made you feel like you were in the cockpit of a plane doing loop-de-loops ... I just want you to know, I meant to do that.
