Here Goes Nothing...or Everything! April 6th, 2008

Such a lovely condo and we have no hot water! Had to take a cold shower last night. This morning John is up rousting the house staff claiming "no agua caliente"...they messed around and left. Worrying about hot water is not high on our priority list right now. I have a feeling that it will all work out.

Our property manager showed up on the doorstep with a key to the JR suite next door that has hot water so we can shower. We talked a bit about how she used to live inthe same small town that we do!!! Small world. Anyway, she has been extremely attentive and accomodating of our needs.

We made Mexican eggs for breakfast, scrambled with green pepper, chorizo, tomatoes, onions and jalapeno. Yum! Walked down to the water and met Hector and Diana, a younger couple and their small boys. They are the daughter and son-in-law of the owners and are staying in the complex next door. Very nice people although I guess we are not completely alone here! Ha! Kids pool toys strewn over chairs and in the water. hmmmm-maybe theyre just here for the day.

We decided to walk the other way down the road to a small "tienda (store) that our property manager told us about. Halfway there we spotted Playa Lancheros where they serve the famous TiknChik, which is a whole fish grilled in anchote and banana leaves and served with beans, rice and the ever present tortillas and lime. We were still stuffed from breakfast so we had a beer and a chelada, which is a beer served with a cup of ice, lime juice and salt on the rim. Very refreshing. There is a small beach here and a shark pen that you can enver and swim and even hold a nurse shark. John is not down with the animals in captivity for money bit.

Left there and found la tienda, manned by a couple of small boys, where we bought some hot sauce, oil, chips and a can of salsa. Headed back and decided to skip the pool energy and go down to the private beach with our cooler of beer and limes. Im reading "On Mexican Time" about a writer and artist from LA who cashed it in and moved to San Miguel de Allende in the mountains of Mexico. Its fun relating to all his very descri-ptive observations of what its like to live here.

Early dinner of leftover chicken on flour tortillas with salsa and all the above mentioned accoutrements! I have reconfirmed that Mexican food is definitely my fave.
Oh! Must mention that we have music channels on the TV and we had a classical kind of piano one on. I was in the bedroom and I heard the most beautiful guitar being played with it. I knew it was John and sure enough it was he jamming (?) with the TV!!!! Pretty cool.
