she ended up in a mental asylum and ended
up escaping to Mexico so pretty much we have a lot in common, I need food, probably enchiladas of some kind I’m so glad the Beegees haven’t gone back on –
how deep is your love indeed! YUM hola amigos and welcome back to San Luis
Potosi today is Thursday and I mean Plaza Fundadores where I came before
you might remember I came to a car show here in a Sunday morning and right in
front of me there’s some kind of thing being put up possibly for some kind of
concert or something there’s always something like this happening in this
area of San Luis and in today’s video we’re doing a few little bits so we go
to the museum I’m going to talk about a subject which is really at the forefront
of my mind at the moment and many youtubers have talked about this which
is YouTube burnout and also perhaps um ice cream so I mentioned in the last
video the in San Luis my ice cream is famous helado is everywhere and I know
there are many places that you would probably recommend to me to go to there
are also many mainstream places like Dairy Queen I’m not going there but
there’s a place right over there which has been recommended by Elizabeth my
wonderful a B&B host I’ve just had a huge coffee thing full
of sugar and now I’m gonna have some ice cream I’m gonna be hot more hyper than a
normally are, am? I can’t even speak anyway let’s go! let’s get past the
lamppost so this is the la michoacana I understand they do lots of
different varieties of them of helado so let’s see what we can find so the lighting in here is fantastic look
at my time amazing and by the way this is the second time I’ve filmed this bit
because if you saw the Guanajuato video recently where I had to put half
the video without sound because there was copyrighted music in the background
that just happened – The Beegees how deep is your love! so I’m filming this again so here’s
the ice cream which is half eaten already because that was in the first take but this
is helado con queso y zarzamora which I have no idea what
it is I’m assuming cheesy raspberry or something and indeed it’s fruit so yeah it’s beautiful! yum, obviously I’ve already reacted to
this in the first time there’s something and it tastes like you know proper
homemade ice cream with proper fruit I think it’s like raspberry or something
cherry maybe but you know it doesn’t taste like that crap again from the
supermarket you know Soriana, Bodega Aurrera and, you know, this beast,
I always get these things and think oh that’s not much it’s
not very big it’s huge forty pesos is stunning and I’m so
tired the Bee Gees haven’t gone back on how deep is your love indeed yum! and
while this dips all over my fingers as per usual there’s lots of different
things you can get so as well as the different varieties of ice cream so many
of them there’s also Aguas Frescas like Horchata, things like that,
lollipops Americans might call them popsicles I call them lollies or lollipops but
yeah so many different things I think and behind me there’s Gazpacho and something
cold soup? who knows okay you might remember that place
behind me Comida China I ate there in another video in San Luisand we’ve
left the ice cream place I didn’t eat the whole thing because this is a
reality moment for YouTube when you have food in videos sometimes you don’t
necessarily want the food so you just eat half of it and chuck it away just
for the video you know reality time so we’re going off to a museum now museo de
leonora carrington the english artist surrealist artists so we’re walking back
towards san sebastian i live just up there let me know in the comments what
you think of these first-person perspective shots so you’re actually
seeing what I’m looking at looking forward rather than the kind of my face
yeah I’ll be interested to know everyday life in San Luis or more
specifically barrio San Sebastian oh I thought that girl was waving at me but
she was waving a bus anyway Oxxo, beautiful colorful buildings this little
place this tacos tortas place it’s beautiful they’re really cheap like
tacos things like that nice little place to eat clapped-out cars a car with
slightly odd wheels wonderful green taxis yellow buses very san Luis one
thing I haven’t mentioned for a very long time is I really miss driving I am
the best car driver on the planet I can’t ride a
bike cut it all off straight away the cars are my forte it’s that beast back
there love to go for a driving now might get a car somehow there’s some put in
the future I do have an international driving license as well as a UK driver’s
license so watch out for that look at that beast I have no idea what car it is
or make manufacturer I just like driving and red shiny what more could you ask
for well there’s a dollar sign in the window
is it for sale I would totally buy that if I had the money so I’m back at the centro de las Artes
yes art this amazing building that looks
like a you know castle or something that was in the last video but with this time
I’m going to go inside so art yes this is a art place Leonora Carrington was an
artist and I think it’s obvious with previous videos art is one subject I
pretty much know sod all about so as a child I was the talented musician
whereas my two sisters were fantastic artists I obviously missed out on the
art genes in the family and Leonar account and I’m extremely familiar with
her because of my time in Mexico City she was an English artist born in
England in the early nineteen hundred’s and she had quite an interesting life so
during the Second World War she was in France she had a German
boyfriend or something and who then got arrested she ended up in a mental asylum
and ended up escaping to Mexico so pretty much we have a lot in common and
she was a surrealist artist so one thing about Mexico which I didn’t realize
before I came to Mexico was how much art is part of culture and history here so
Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera Edward James and other surrealist artists from the UK
the put together the garden in Xilitla which you can check out in a video up
above but this up here is what I was looking for pretty much so there’s like
a viewpoint where you can see that bizarre structure yeah so it’s a big
part of the culture I actually find it quite interesting it’s developed in me
since I first got to Mexico I you know I I was like whatever but now it’s quite
fascinating especially something like surrealism because it’s just completely
bonkers and crazy pretty much like me so it’s kept inside I was told this
place was free on Sunday all museums are free but obviously I come on the day
that it isn’t typical however it’s only 50 pesos open 10:00 to 6:00 last
admission and 5:30 museo leonora carrington right fast forward a little bit in the
future I have a visitor’s badge on because I’ve been in and out can’t film
as expected because of copyright issues that’s okay don’t panic I took lots of
photos brilliant so this museum isn’t just Leonor
Carrington there’s other art from the US or Mexico but the main focus is dinner
accounted okay and the reason it’s like a fortified castle of some kind is
because I believe it was an old jail or prison or penitentiary because each of
the particular than in our account a bit it looks like you know old jail cells
and there’s even a bit that shows what it was like when it was a jail and I’ve
got to say the thing about this art you know like as I’m not an expert but but
the thing I particularly liked it was the sculpture aspect of it and it it’s
creepy it’s thoroughly bizarre that’s the best way I can describe it because
you’ve got almost the word I would use would be chimera so there are you know
these these pieces of art are very much an amalgamation of two different species
in a way in a slightly odd way so there’s one called the hug which is
really odd it’s like this it almost looks like the alien out of Independence
Day with its hands out hugging you and there’s also a really bizarre one an
elephant stroke you know it’s got human hands and human feet really
odd so a bit like you know the horse and the man is that mine at all I can’t
remember is probably wrong but yeah chimera is the word and this might sound
odd but you know I mentioned Independence Day and actually that one
behind me it looks like the alien out of Independence Day strangely but also
there was an element of Star Wars in it you know when Harrison Ford Han Solo got
like frozen in the stone it feels like a lot of the sculptures are a bit like
that like some sort of animal in pain reaching out thoroughly odd thoroughly
bizarre so yeah 50 pesos boom leonora carrington I just realized I’ve been
saying Leonara Carrington for this entire video – Leonora Carrington.
Bummer!, but unfortunately I’m not capable of time travel yet so you just have to
live with it and back in barrio San Sebastian on the not Bandstand not
gazebo kiosko oh thank you to whoever it was that told me that brilliant and
absolute laws have walked all this way with this visitor badge on my leg
fantastic so this video it’s not over yet huns it’s time to talk about
YouTube burnout now this might be a bit of a stretch in terms of linking
Leonora Carrington to YouTube burning up but in terms of chimera
essentially we are all chimeras especially in terms of YouTube so we can
either go from being someone that’s highly motivated almost bordering on
manic you know throwing videos out left right and center as much as possible and
then we could be someone that would rather turn off social media and live
bed watching cat videos which is kind of what happened in Mexico City the
secret’s out and this concept of burnout you know youtubers talk about this a lot
lately it’s very much trending and all that so I thought I would give my take
however I’ve kind of got two views on it as always
so the concept of burnout you know it’s not specific to YouTube everyone burns
out in whatever job you do I’m sure that’s the case it definitely will so
many when I was in the UK you know doing 15 hour days traveling from west to east
London on the tube every day it was horrendous and we can get to a point
where you are so exhausted and destroyed and the problem is you don’t realize the
problem is you don’t realise that it’s happening and that’s definitely the case
with YouTube so on the flip side YouTube burnout is a thing and I’ve definitely
experienced that many times and right now I am exhausted right now I’ve
uploaded I think five videos in the last week and it’s been horrendous because
you know I you’ve gotta remember I also teach English 25 to 30 hours a week and
YouTube as well my working day is around 15 hours or 15 hours a day I get about 4
hours sleep and I’m shattered and I guess the the point with this if you are
a youtuber or thinking about doing it it’s not easy you know and you have this
pressure of the YouTube algorithm says that you need to upload every day
yeah that might be the case if you want YouTube to recommend your videos which
is exactly the reason why many youtubers out there explode on YouTube because
they do upload everyday and the algorithm recognizes that and could I do
that you know yes I could I could get up every morning and just do a low quality
video where I just walk down the street talking to the camera that requires no
skill creative power or editing prowess yeah I could do that but do I want to
know because I would rather have videos that are higher quality so if you are a
youtuber or think about doing it don’t think that you need to do what everyone
else does and there’s a fine balance between you know throwing content now
and looking after your own physical and mental health yesterday I forgot to eat
until 10:00 p.m. it’s ridiculous because you just don’t even think of eating
you’re just so snowed under with work so don’t think it’s bad you know you want
to take a week off you know the viewers will still be there a week later and I
think YouTube viewers at least you guys not all YouTube viewers are intelligent
enough to realize that I’m also a human I’m not a robot well that would be great
though I would love to be a robot it’ll make things a lot easier and yeah that’s
my thoughts on YouTube burnout it happens but just be careful and be
conscious of it and on the subject of forgetting to eat and feeling dizzy and
like I’m gonna pass out into oblivion it’s time to eat food necesito comida
mexicana probablemente enchiladas of some kind YUM so quickly here’s the food Cecina – 2
enchiladas huastecas, frijoles in the middle with cheese on the top a bit of
salad tomato and a little pot thing and some kind of white sauce and don’t
recognize, music is playing, let’s eat today in San Luis is over another day of
talking another day of eating slightly average food those enchiladas weren’t
the best and also pretending to be interested in art although you know
that’s what you’re gonna go this channel I’m not gonna bullshit yeah I’m gonna
tell the truth if you like that kind of youtuber don’t forget to subscribe like
and comment what do you think about YouTube burnout what do you think about
the food I’ve had in this video what do you think of San Luis then you know in
the comments and our reply momentary thanks for watching I’ll see you next
time from San Luis, I’ll catch you later

  2. I don't even see it, and I'excited to watch your video… I hope you still want to come back (again) to S.L.P.

  3. Hello DAVID aunque no entiendo mucho tu idioma pero disfruto de los videos de SAN LUIS POTOSI 🌵 soy una MEXICANA muy POTOSINA yo voy air muy pronto a vicitar mi esrado SLP en julio y siempre tendras mi like ok saludos desde la CDMX bye🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌹

  4. I hear you Dave! I second, your comment about "burn out"! I don't sleep well and I feel that my entire day is gone because I start teaching every morning at 4 am followed by italki students until 3 or 4 pm ! Btw, It's nice to hear that I'm not the only teacher, whose student's bad English, is rubbing off on them. haha Btw, I just thought of you. I was listening to music by "Muse". I love British people!

  5. Hey David you should learn how to cook your favorite Mexican food like enchiladas potosinas and whenever you go back to your hometown spread out our food and culture to your family and friends but hey I love your videos and more when is about San Luis. Please come back to San Luis and visit La Joya Honda

  6. Thanks a butch Tao for your effort, talent, and the time you put into all of your videos and comments. I wish I could put the hundreds or thousands of likes that your work deserves. Unfortunately I can only put one like😩. To me that food looks awesome. Pls, don’t stop making videos…..I simply love the,….God bless you and take care.

  7. I like to see you talk, but I also like to see what you are seeing, perhaps you can mix it up a little bit more

  8. Thanks so much for making good quality video with good content, even though is a lot of work, and yes i understand your are a human, i love Mexico and thanks to you i can travel to the beautiful Mexico.
    Take care of your self.
    Be praying for you

  9. Thank you for showing the center of the arts, nice video. I'm dying to see the third video. You work a lot, David, my admiration for that.

  10. Great video! I’m glad you had your helado fix! Because I had their helados as a child, I could never truly enjoy US ice creams.

  11. Hello my friend David, very well that you keep visiting us, welcome to San Luis Potosí, I saw you when you were recording your video in downtown, I wanted to say hello but not interrupt your recording

  12. Good job. I like your time travel editing. Those enchiladas looked like dried out empanadas. Thanks for your efforts. I'm enjoying your work very much. Cheers.

  13. David if you want good enchiladas you have to go to the home base which is Soledad San Luis Potosí that’s were the enchiladas were originally made .

  14. I love your videos, welcome to your new home we are very grateful with your videos showing the true and not the bad news of fox news, have a nice stay 😊

  15. You got it! For most of the 19th & 20th century Mexico was haven for a lot of artists, political & intelectuals refugees from Poland, Germany, France, Spain, England to Argentina, Chile, Lebanon, Syria… all of them were fleeing their countries for different reasons. Most of them were considered misfits elsewhere and here they found a freedom, peace and inspiration to be themselves and so they decided to settle here. Around 1939, there were almost 2 million refugees in the country fleeing from WWII and civil war in Spain. After WWII many fleeing communist countries ended up here too.
    I find it interesting because we are seen as a country from where people flee but in fact, hystorically, we have been a country where people fleeing from other countries, found a home. And it is not talked about enough.
    Ps.- when I get burnout I do this: get inspired by YT to find facts that only I find interesting lol. Great video hun!

  16. I’ve never been to slp someday it will be my destination thanks to your videos. it looks quite interesting like time just stopped there in the 1800 or something. I can’t imagine the work u put on your videos it must be tiresome boring tbh that’s why I appreciate your content even more than other youtubers reacting to different things that I don’t like,cheers!!

  17. I’m glad you are showing San Luis Potosí. My mom is from there and I live in the states. Planning to go . So , I am bias so glad you’re there . Thank you.

  18. Hola Tao qué gustó verte en mi estado te sugiero investigues la historia del bello museo de Leonora pues hace muchos años fue una penitenciaria y es muy interesante

  19. Aw I'm gonna miss this videos. You talking with so much passion about Mx, but OK, I'm trying to get over the fact that you have to go 🙁 and thank you because everyone here is learning at the same time as you in each of your videos, hun 😂

  20. También el laberinto de la ciencias y artes dentro del parque tangamanga es un lugar muy lindo para visitar

  21. as u were "randomly" filming the seemingly ordinary streets of San Luis and talking, one could almost consider living there, as one might do with many other places that one could visualize oneself in.
    I was in San Luis once.. we drove up from pachuca,.. with a family to a birthday party or something.. it was a baile and all..

  22. The museum you went was an old Jail I can't remember at the time what mexican president was in held in that jail. I was actually born in the hospital close to their and was where my family went for a long time.

  23. Beautiful video David! Since you’re in SLP and eventually going to Zacatecas, you should stop in the pueblo mágico of Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco. It’s less than 2 hours from SLP and on the way to Zacatecas. It’s totally off the tourist map and has what I believe to be the most beautiful baroque church exterior anywhere. I’m sure you’ll love it.

  24. I like YouTubeers who tell the truth.I get tired of fake people easily and can spot a fake person a mile away…Keep it real and you’ll do fine

  25. As an artist, when the time comes to create, we all become …maniacs of creation, we just can’t stop sometimes. Anyway back to reality…little by little I starting to like San Luis Potosí, kioscos en Mexico is one thing that we inherited from our brothers in Europe, possibly Spain. Take care and have a wonderful time cause you only live once (YOLO) cheers 🥂!!

  26. Hi David! Thanks for working so hard to produce quality video. You have once again started my day, added kick to my coffee, given me a giggle and enriched the hue of my heart chakra. Take time off to take care of yourself, life goes fast. I'm 55 and am watching your videos to imagine how I can travel and take care of myself. You're such an inspiration. Although I certainly enjoy your face shots, I enjoy seeing the territory with your colorful narrative as well. Many blessings to you! Jim

  27. You said you escaped from a mental asylum, I thought I recognized you. That's where I must have met you long ago! LOL I'm glad you are not a robot. Robots have boring hair! Great vlog, fun and interesting!

  28. What a beautiful place! Burnout is real! For me slowing real down is the only way to help it pass. Take care!

  29. Thank you so much for your videos, they are so relaxing, please do not stop doing videos I love them! And also, it is a great exercise for me to improve in some way my (not so good) English.
    You are so welcome to San Luis Potosí!! 🎉🎊👏🙋👍

  30. Well… Also, I understand that you are exhausted… It is OK to take a break in everything that Is causing you this fatigue, go away for a while, I mean, everybody needs that… So, go ahead! Take a break!… We will miss you, but we will be fine!🙋👍😊

  31. I liked when you took video in your perspective, seeing the streets "from your eyes" was really nice. As far as burnout, you are correct, almost anything can cause burnout eventually. Maybe at first it was fun and new, then things after a while seem mundane, ordinary and the new is gone. Instead of the word burnout, it would be best to say it's the end of a chapter or the end of the book. Then move on to a new chapter or new book that makes you happy 🙂

  32. Hi David. When I visited SLP I spent some time at SLP's former penitentiary. I thought the city's government was not making a wise use of such a huge space. I am glad to see they decided to pay homage to Leonora Carrington by exhibiting her work as part of the museum's permanent collection. San Miguelito is my favorite neighborhood in San Luis city. It has a very colorful and lovely chapel consecrated to the Archangel Michael. Check it out if you can. Thanks for sharing your candid thoughts about Mexico. Cheers

  33. You're not a robot? Damn, and here I thought that I had finally found Skynet's predecessor.

    But more seriously, I love your videos and your honest views on things. As you've said, burnout happens everywhere and we should take some time off and clear the mind to fend off the damage from it. Most of us will be here no matter your schedule, so feel free to publish videos when you feel more comfortable.

    Best wishes

  34. Hola yo vivo en san luis y siempre ando por San Sebastián si algún necesitas un lugar para nuevo video te recomiendo río verde esta a 2 horas en autobus, hay manantiales de aguas termales de los mejores elotes que vas a probar otro tipo de enchiladas tamborcitos 🙂 saludos
    PD me gustan muchos tus videos aun que apenas los empese a ver

  35. If you are in zacatecas this place is super famous there, famous people have visited it.https://www.zonaturistica.com/que-hacer-en-el-lugar-turistico/1769/las-quince-letras-zacatecas.html

  36. Love your videos…They have inspired me to take a detour to SLP now next time I’m in beautiful Mexico!

  37. Hi ! You have to visit the museo of ferrocarril infront of the alameda, that museum used to be a train station opened since 1942 to 90's, is so big and full of history and you can get in with only $30 pesos

  38. Gaspachos sound like soup, but are fruit cups that have a mixture of fruit, but also not sweet things like cucumber, jicama, onions, cheese, lime juice and Chamoy. I've never had one, but they're very popular in Morelia

  39. Putting out a YouTube video every day! I am surprised that you put out as many videos as you do. Do what you feel you can do and enjoy yourself and thanks for the good videos that you entertain us with.

  40. I like your videos so much… I’m obsessed tbh . And I agree with you quality over quantity any day makes a channel a good channel. Keep the good work

  41. Hi David! I listen to music, I love reading, watching movies and for those days in hell where nothing relaxes me I like to meditate and sleep listening to Bach or meditation channels music. About Leonora Carrington, I can tell you that her work are fascinating and a little like exits from a terrifying dream, I love them! I think it's the first time I see you so tan, you look good. kisses ❤️😘

  42. If you don’t know , la huasteca potosina , you are missing the paradise
    Xilitla , sótano de las golondrinas the English noble man Edward. James , and his surrealist garden
    He discovered the paradise , and had a storm of creativity , until he died
    I just see you been already there
    Sorry ! I though , you didn’t been there

  43. Hi David, i am Potosino and i like a lot of your videos, not only about SLP but mainly that, i dont understood the most of your videos but i am learning, and nothing, i want to thank you for visit my city and help me with my english, i hope see you soon.

  44. San Luis Potosí es hermoso, lástima que ahora este Presidente los quiere llenar de inmigrantes centroamericanos, africanos, haitianos y de quien sabe donde….Que Dios los ayude….

  45. Love your videos! I found you from Erintravels.
    We love Mexico so I am enjoying these videos in particular. We own a property in Tulum and really want to experience more of the country. We also love to travel in General so we will be staying tune for more travel videos☺️

  46. I just subscribed to your channel, David – don't burn out now!
    Greetings from an old burned out Danish bugger.

  47. David thanks a lot for visiting S.L.P. my hometown, just a few youtoubers decide to travel over here. I hope you enjoyed you time here. Greattings obviosly from S.L.P.

  48. Are  you half Asian? I know you're British, definitely half white, but you could pass for Mexican because of your eyes and your tan lol.
