Destination - Pátzcuaro

Yesterday was definitely a down day.  We had partied pretty hardy on Saturday night.   Sunday we had a light breakfast and came back home to read the paper and lounge around.   Not much to tell in that.

We headed out walking around 6 p.m. and headed to the Parroquia.  Sunday is always a good day to people watch.   Weird thing though, this is off-season so there are very few tourists and the streets are pretty much empty.   In fact, after we finished last night, walking home we realized that at 10:00 p.m. the streets were desolate.   Not a soul in sight.

Being the last night before going on to our house-sitting job, we treated ourselves to a dinner at Pegaso's.   We haven't eaten there in quite a few years and we didn't even know they had a terrace restaurant.   Great!   A few couples, a single gringa, were at the surrounding tables.  The days are warm but the nights, like always, cool off beautifully.

As always, we split a plate and had a glass of wine or a beer.   Very good food, excellent service, and the views are fantastic.  A little too expensive for my blood but we don't do it very often.

On the way home, after dinner, you can see how empty the streets were.

Came home to an episode of Golden Girls and off to bed.   

This morning we take off around noon, our drive is less than three and a half hours.  Before taking off, I want to stop and get some fresh bread from the Canadian bakery to take as a gift along with a couple bottles of wine we selected before leaving home.   A bit nervous about house sitting although it will be fun.  Lots to learn about the ranch, the horses and moving around the area.   We hope to do a lot of day trips.  I have come up with a list of 10 things I think are important to see.

I will tell the story of how the house sitting came about later this week.  Not much to tell but it is part of the story.


  1. I always enjoy the little things..lounging around, dinner together and a nice walk. I would find the ranch day to day interesting.

  2. A lovely few days in SMA. Looking forward to hearing the next saga.
