Mexico 2017 Part Cinco

PREVIOUS                                 NEXT >> VIERNES 21 JULIO We are beginning to develop a workable routine for our days here in Queretaro.  After a long full day, we generally reserve the following day for rest and relaxation. At first my farm boy work ethic was resistant to the idea of just laying around all day, but then, when you think if it, the average American is just that:  Go to some fancy beach-side resort for a week, and lounge by the pool guzzling one of those fancy ...

Mexico 2017 Part Cuatro

Mexico 2017 Part Dos

<< VIEW PREVIOUS PAGE         VIEW NEXT PAGE>> JUEVES 13 JULY Today we gave ourselves permission to rest.  We had a leisurely morning a la casa, then a leisurely stroll down to the plaza(s) for desayuno, then back home for an "administrative" day at our respective computers. The day completed rather inelegantly with a mediocre meal at one of the Mexican restaurants just off Jardin Zenea (in spite of encouraging Yelp revues). We notice a common item on many menus to be grasshoppers, and I am determined to try it (however disgusting it might sound) but Dorothee ...
