This is our rental car. It was a great little car...till the night
we left. But, that's another story for another time. It was a Fiat Panda. Fiat is made by Ferrari. Chris and I both wondered aloud why these aren't sold in the US.
If anyone knows that answer, I'd like to know. It was a great
little car...most importantly, the A/C worked GREAT. A big
deal :) It was a stick shift, so I often begged to drive to wherever we
were going...it was lots of fun to zip around in.
Every day, at some point, we had to find one of these places, so we could
call home and talk to the kids. These places (not sure what you call them..maybe
a cyber cafe, without the cafe') had computers, faxes, copiers and
phones. We visited five different ones over the course of five days.
Not sure what the tree is in the front, maybe Melodie Sankey could help
me out with that. Calls home usually were approx. $.50 per minute.
Our first meal in Mexico was SCRUMPTIOUS. We were starving since
we hadn't eaten in 8 hrs. This was the first of MANY meals
eaten outside. All restaurants are 'al fresco"...at least the
ones we visited. On my plate were black beans,
white rice and some kind or chicken /veggie dish. Can't really
explain it without boring everybody, but it was so good that I
get very hungry every time I think of it. The owner was from Spain. So
he told us that the menu was influenced by Spain, France, and Italy. An
interesting, but tasty combination.
Chris buying milk. This is something I'm not sure I could
get used to...the milk is in boxes, non-refrigerated. The taste is very
different...but it kept us alive!! haha Also, the eggs are just sitting
out as well...not refrigerated. But, like the milk, we
ate them and survived just fine!
All these treats looks SO good. and they were rather cheap. It
was hard to get used to seeing them out in open
like this. Germs didn't worry me as much as I couldn't help
but think how DRY everything was getting. The items I bought weren't
too dry though.
A little McD's treat stand. Here in our area, the McD's do not
have my favorite sundae...hot caramel. This one, just outside Soriana did.
I want every one to know, I ordered all by myself
in Spanish. LOL. I needed to know about 4 words...hahaha
These beautifully waxed floors always caught my eye.
Surely if they can keep them this
clean, with all the dirty foot traffic, you'd think I
could do better with my kitchen floors...haha There was
a guy out there cleaning them when we arrived...the
first of many times a day, I'm guessing.
