Sundays are quiet, nothing gets done around the house and if the weather is good it's our day for lunch away.
What options do we have?
Not too many, I'm afraid.
That's because we don't want to stand in front of a Taco or Marisco stand on the plaza. We have found that only 20 minutes away feels like another state.
The state of tranquility.
And the food is basic, good and cheap.
Where else can you get a couple of Negro Modelos, and a full plate including beans, a small salad and the main dish along with a basket of freshly hand made tortillas for 10 bucks. ( For Two )
Not including the tip of course, but remember a tip in Mexico is not expected or part of your mortgage payment like in the states.
We do give 2 pesos to the duo of kids that claim that they will watch our car in the parking lot. I'm sure they would watch your car for nothing since they watch all cars in the parking lot.
I wonder if they would do anything if something happened?
I somehow think that if something did happen after you entered into a contract with them to watch your vehicle, they would run away, so that you wouldn't expect them to make good on the claim....... so I still figure that it's worth to be part of the spread the wealth program!
But Sunday we feel benevolent, after all we did wake up on another day....many people did not.
Our "little get out of Dodge hideaway", can be gotten to in several ways. One is a nice scenic sojourn through 3 communities, two small and one tiny.
Or for about a buck we can take the nice superhighway and shave off about 10 minutes.
For that buck I can buy another beer and enjoy the weaving through trees, cobblestone roads and let a handful of zealous drivers pass me on the road.
Sundays sometimes are a day for plaza family watching. Lots of families exit their abodes, dawn on their Sunday going to meeting clothes and head to town. We do something like that be don't have special duds, and since every other day is a Sun day, I'll let them enjoy their special day!
Sundays are special since with all this lallygagging I don't have to make lunch either.
And if we time it just right, lunch will carry us over and dinner will lack any big production. Maybe just a small fruit salad or warmed up sweet tamal.
As we sit at our lakefront vista, it starts to fill up by 2:30.....
Based on how the stilts look that carry the load of the room, and the weight that is starting to enter, I think it would be wise for us to start thinking of paying our tab and moseying to our chariot for the trip back home.
Maybe one final detour on our way home, perhaps an cool cup of rich ice cream from one of our world famous ice cream vendors that anchor the west portals of the big plaza.
The again maybe it's not worth the traffic which may be there, luckily we now have a satellite vendor from the big plaza selling some flavors down in our little colonia.
A trip to the big plaza, in the big town will have to wait for another day....
