Well, we started off our time in Puerto Vallarta with a visit to yet another Walmart. They seem to have the cheapest oil and they also sell the tequila for a really good price! So we topped up Gloria and had a drink ourselves while we waited for our host, Edna Torres, to come find us.

From there we headed straight to the nicest beach in town, which unfortunately is also the gay beach, so we didn't stay long for fear of getting hit on. Edna and her mom then took us for the best pescado zarandeado (grilled fish) we had had yet and from there to there very cute home. A short time later we were off to dinner at a very hospitable families house who are in Edna's cong. We love eating and it is even better when acommpanied with good conversation.

The next day we did some laundry, went to a few diferent hotels along the strip to poach their pools only to be promptly, but politely removed by security. So we decided to go to a sweet beach that I remembered from the last time I was in Puerto Vallarta called Playa Gemela. Amazingly beautiful sand, cristal clear water and even some decent snorkeling. To round off the day we went to the meeting with Edna and were surprised to hear the brother make an announcement about us and our trip from the platform. He announced to everyone that we were on our way to Brazil, invited us to a congregation party the following evening  and told all in attendance to come talk to us about our plans. This turned out to be a bit of a challenge for Dan and Tyler since it was our first meeting in spanish.

With our laundry freshly washed and Gloria all packed up we headed out to Tenacatita, which is a beach that was recommended to us by the bros in Puerto Vallarta. On leaving the town we saw the sign for El Eden, which is the site where Predator was filmed as well as a sign for Tequila Tours, hence we made a slight detour. El Eden is an incredible natural water slide/cliff jumping/swimming hole located at the end of what seemed to be a very long dirt road. This was actually my second time there. On the way back we gave a group of kids who were skipping school a ride, then made them get out at the first Tequila factory we saw. The Tequila that we sampled was very good, but I think we'll stick to El Jimador. One more note ... pollo asado is the best!

Muchisimas gracias una vez mas a ti Edna por la hospitalidad que nos mostraste y expresale a tu mami tambien nuestro agradecimieto porfis.

Glad for the review...
Somehow, I missed this entry and am glad that I went back to look at some of the previous pictures. Sounds like you had an eventful and fun filled time with the brothers and sisters - hope you gave the kids skipping school a little reminder on how important an education really is...we know you did ;) Thanks for the updates...and keep them coming.
