Part II-Round II: The People And The Food, With Some Fluff Thrown In.
By: MommaDe (View Profile)
Isla is a place of comfort, not just because the people are so inviting but for all the wonderful places to eat.
In no particular order. I donĺt want to get my hand slapped for putting the wrong food picture with a different restaurant. Itĺs hard to find a bad meal on Islaůů..(I tried to label the ones I knew).
There are a few baubbles throughout this report. I was able to fix some of them.Sorry! Then I added more pictures.
I have a soft spot for Picusů..itĺs the first meal we had on Isla in 2006.
Early in the morningůůů..across from the naval base
Yes, I know itĺs not there anymore, but we loved this restaurantůůůů
Iĺm a bit partial to the animals too! I am one of the guilty ones who brings treats, collars, and other supplies to Isla animals, the cat lady and Josephina.
North Beach and Sergio ľ Ask for Roger to wait on you (NICE man!)
My niece, Mikki outside of Coolĺs ice cream.
And then there are the wonderful people.
Gotta take a break from the drooling.
We only saw this fellow once but he was fabulous!
Hortensia, and some of her family and grandchildrenů.
The wonderful ladies at the bead coop! They are so appreciative of supplies that people donate.
This purse was given to me as a thank you by this lovely lady. It took her 3 weeks to make.
This is Mari. She make reversible purses from the materials you pick out from her selection of cloth!
She used to be in the artisian markets behind Manana. Now Mari is up in the marketplace (back right corner) closer to Posada Del Mar. Her mother has her old booth and her brother and his wife are across the way.
Gotta love Sergioĺs smile! He is usually at the end of Hildago. We have purchased four of his batiks and they are beautiful! His English is also good.
La Gloria English School is a wonderful school where they teach English to the Islanos. This is Marbella, who is a college student. Mexico doesnĺt have ôfree educationö like the United States. She and a few other hard working young people are being scholarshipped by "teams" of Americans so that they can go to high school (tuition based) and college. This is a wonderful way to give back to the island.
The Little Yellow School House is close to my heart as I am a special education teacher. Mexico does even less for these children.
This woman (I think her name is Paula?) is the director of LYSH. She does not speak English but Anna (PEACE) was nice enough to come and help us translate and bring donations.
Nothing goes to waste here. Clothes, school materials, etc. are shared throughout the island. If one place cannot use it they will pass the items on to another school or sell it very inexpensively to the locals to purchase materials they do need.
You have to swim with a shark? This is at Loncheros.
This man did a fabulous caricature of my daughter and her husband. I havenĺt seen him for awhile. He used to sit outside of Angeloĺs on Hildago. And his prices were very reasonable.
This manĺs stall is right inside the market by A&Gĺs and makes homemade OJ and grapefruit juice. We buy a lot of fruit from him as well. Donĺt know his name (and he is not in the picture) but he is very nice.
Fish fingers from Bally Hooĺs
Yummy sandwiches hereůůů
On the corner of Hildago by the cemetery, there is a couple who sell pastries out of their car in the evenings. It sounds like something you wouldnĺt want to do, BUT their pastries are awesome and very inexpensive. We would buy them the night before and then lounge in the pool in the morning with fruit, coffee and tea while we discussed what we were doing for the day.
La BrujaůůůůLOVE this place! Itĺs in La Gloria just up from the bead coop and the Little Yellow School House.
The fruit men making a delivery.
To die forůůůů..
The ice cream man...
Hey, howd you get in here?
Misbehaving children throwing water balloons will be punished!
Who is watching whom?
M & Jĺs new place
Alison and Isla Animals. Another example of the wonderful people on Isla.
Canĺt remember this womanĺs name but she is one of the people who help Alison.
The French Bistro
I love the mailmanů..
This man was very intoxicated and having a wonderful time entertaining this small black dog while we ate breakfast. He was very happy! The dog was very patient.
I think itĺs spelled Renee and Rene. Husband and wife team that make wonderful food. They made us tortas the day we left to eat at the airport. They were Super! And a heck of a lot cheaper than that airport food!
Our latest batiks made upon request! He is VERY creative!
We canĺt find any nut like these green seeds they call ôpumpkin seedsö in our neck of the woods. They are very addicting.
Captain Tony ľ and Contoy Island ľ Whale sharks
Pluĺs family with new grandbaby.
Hoglets and JDlets....
They got new buses this last summer. The bus is really worth the ride. Itĺs really cheap, but you also get to see many of the little neighborhoods and meet some of the locals.
The food never ends to amaze me.
I guess I should have made a slideshow (if I knew how). The places to eat and the wonderful people of the island never cease to amaze me. I dont feel like I even touched the tip of the iceberg with this post......there are so many I have missed...
Maybe next time.
Ah, Islaůůůůů.why do we love it?
