While we did have lots of time to enjoy the area, it didn't seem that we paid much attention to the shopping aspects for those obligatory NOB gifts. Catherine again (she's an amazing lady) stepped in for the rescue and took Deb and I into Chapala to her favorite little spot....Alicia's so that Deb could pick up a few parting gifts
From there it was back to the casa and my last game of pool up at the club with Barry (Fort McMurray) and Ken (Cleveland, Ohio) where they were introduced to a new game affectionately called Mexican Murder.
Deb & I and Don & Dale had been invited to John & Catherine's for dinner last night at their home (next door to Casa 50) for John's famous Stacked Tortilla's which is a New Mexico dish rather than a Mexican dish which consists of tortilla's, beans, chili, lettuce, tomato, cheese onion and likely more of John's secret seasonings......amazing. Having come to know both John and Catherine for just a very short time, they are amazing people. Just before dinner, John asked to say a prayer prior to chowing down on this great food. What John said, I believe was from his heart, it brought tears to my eyes as to the things he said for Deb and I.
After dinner we learned a new game called Mexican Train, a very different game that uses domino plaques as the major playing pieces.
It's packing time today
To all of you here in El Dorado, to all of you in Ajijic that we met during our travels - Deb and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our heart for opening our eyes to a new way of life here in Mexico. We are very sad to leave our new friends, but we will be back.
Thank you very much for all your hospitality and friendship!
Bob & Deborah
