Day Six


It’s hard to believe how fast the time is going.
We are having a good time
and only occasionally making the stupid tourist mistakes. For example-
last night we decided to have pizza and wine for dinner. A few days ago
we had spotted and checked out a likely place for this meal.
So, off we go and we get a nice little table on a little balcony
so we can watch the world by as we eat and drink.
The big mistake is they don’t take credit cards.
They had a little sign posted (in Spanish only) and we just didn’t see it.
Fortunately Russell had enough money to pay the bill.
Yikes. I was seeing us washing dishes or me held ransom
while Russell went to find an ATM !
We now have a new rule “Ask first before ordering”
Here are a few pictures from our day:



Our beautiful breakfast. First a dish of fresh cantalope
and tuna (fruit from cactus). We haad bought the
tuna fruit the day before at the Ocotlan Market
The second course of our breakfast was a pyramid of
Mexican scrambled aggs with a frijole sauce. Yum.

This market is beyond huge. Too big for me.
We spent some time here looking for the ever
elusive butter dish!!!

Chilis, onons,and string beans



Russell and I became this Zocalo mime's stooge's...


Russell was a good sport! And the mime was hilarious.




Pizza place had a great view.....
