Another Eventful Day In Jalisco

I'm not really sure just what day it is or what to title today's blog.  All I can say is that we are relaxing and enjoying the vacation.  Let´s hope it lasts for a long while.

The weather in Valle is my kind of climate.  22C during the day with the sun on your face it's nice and warm.  At night it has been hovering around 7C.  That's perfect for connecting the electric blanket.  

Everything here at the rv park works just fine.   Good electric, water, showers, and laundry.   There is no wifi but we are using the Telcel stick.   I called yesterday to confirm which package was the best and I am buying 2 hours at a time for 15 pesos.   So with 300 pesos of air time, choosing the "internet only" option, that gives us 40 hours of internet time.  That's according to the calculator.  We'll see what happens but it works great here in Valle.

Yesterday the guys went to Mazamitla.  We did a little shopping at the local mercado.  People are always surprised at the prices.   Lots of fresh meats and although we aren't big flesh eaters, they do have chicken livers.   I haven't had them for a long time and would really like to bread and pan fry some.  We also stopped by the little supermarket and picked up; kleenex, napkins, toothpaste, laundry soap, two Colgate toothbrushes, and it all came to 60 pesos or about $3.  

On the way home, we stopped at a restaurant that Heinz had recommended.   He gets the award for the best restaurant recommendation of 2018.  He said they sold fish tacos that were lightly breaded.  Well, Jerry ordered three fish tacos, Bill had two, I ordered the shrimp burger, and Juan ordered a fish taco and a shrimp quesadilla.  The shrimp burder is not like Toni´s in Mazatlan.  It's the best we have had but just a different flavor.   The fish tacos are white bass and truly lightly breaded.   They have a small salad bar with pico de gallo, cole slaw, chopped cabbage mixed with pico de gallo, salsa, etc.  U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E!  I have no need to try anything new this trip here in Valle, I've found all I want.

Last night we headed up to the restaurant that is on the grounds here.  It is closed for lack of workers, I won't go into that diatribe now.  On the covered patio they have an adobe oven.  We built a fire and had happy hour there.   The three girls were crowned "The Queens of Chema´s Rv Park" but just for the one night.  They received crowns and septors.  We finished up and went home to watch Austin Powers Goldmember.  

Tonight we have a bonfire at Becky and Jerry´s house.  They moved here two years ago and built a house so that will all be new to us.  They are loving their new life here in Valle.
