We decided we'd go back to Tango Ajijic for dinner. Unfortunately Deb missed this spot the first time so I thought it would be a great spot to take Deb back considering the quality of the steak that I had the first time. I went with the FLAP steak again and Deb opted for the chicken kabobs. Before dinner they bring you these little rolls and some local condiments. Deb fell in love with this Argentinian condiment that included 13 different (kinda like KFC as this apparently is a secret recipe) kinds of spices which included garlic, parsley, basil, onion, olive oil, bay leaf, and others the waitress couldn't say
We've got a dedicated cab driver now - Francisco. He's an old guy and drives very, very slow in his little yellow and white car - but he always seems to be available to us when I call him on his cell. The cost of a cab from El Dorado down to the main square in Ajijic is $50P or $4US - they don't have meters, so as long as it's within the general vicinity, the price is the same.
We've hooked up with a lady who's been recommended for a trip into Tlaquepaque (pronounced Te-lock-a-pock-eh). Ana runs a concierge service, so she'll come directly to us here at El Dorado, to pick us up - drive the 45 minutes or so to Tlaquepaque - give us about 4 hours to shop in town, have some lunch and then bring us back home. This little town is a suburb to GUAD and it's where the gringo's go to buy their furniture and art, so we thought we'd check this out and get an idea as to what we could get if we need it in the future.
The key's stuck in the front door again
The redness (sunburn) from the last pool visit has started to dissipate so it's likely pool time tomorrow to get a recharge of sun. It is simply incredible that every day since we've been here has been exactly the same weather wise. The rain birds continue to sing their songs so we're told that the rainy season is not that far off.
Again, thanks for reading my dailies (we're up to over 400 views to-date).
