Things Really Picked Up

The days went by and no one was showing up.  It got colder and then wet, warmed up a bit and then cold.  Today, the sun is shining and the pools are filling up.  Every grill is smoking and you can smell the carne asada.  Kids everywhere having fun, the majority are well-behaved and knock it off early.  We have pretty tight security here and the music stops at 10:30 p.m.  Quiet time.  I guess they had a roddy bunch the other night, and they refused to follow the rules.  The police were called and they were taken to the slammer.

We have been vegetating as Croft would say and hanging around the palapa.  We go for morning walks and try to pester whoever we can.  I am reading quite a bit this week as the internet signal is pooping out.  Looks like the Movistar tower is having problems in the area.

This afternoon we are going to El Alamo for seafood at Arturo's.  When we get back to the park I am hooking up the trailer so it is ready to pull out early in the morning.  At home, we went there yesterday to check on the cats, traffic is at its all time high.  Getting there before eight a.m. will ensure that we get trailer down our road without a hitch (no pun intended).

  1. Sounds like you're having a very quiet Semana Santa... not like we've been used to in Mexico at all. Here it isn't rowdy... just way too many people for me to deal with. We watched a few processions, but I just couldn't handle the claustrophobic feelings anymore... now we sit on a bench a few blocks away and watch the people. By the way... I think Bill liked the opera... mostly because we knew "Carmen" and had me the other performers. Guess that makes a difference in how you accept/like something ;-)
