I was on my way from Piste to Playa del Carman and was passing through Valladolid. I thought that I sort of missed the wonderful meals I have had here at Yerba Bueno so - rather than using my already purchased ticket I decided to splurge and take a hotel for the night and pay a premium for my return to Cozumel. I was under budget because my landlord gave me a really low cost last week of my 5 week stay. And I was not disappointed. Estavan greeted me warmly, as did his wife Monica a few minutes later and he showed me his new menu - to which I said - I'll just have your breakfast. With this instruction I was treated to an awesome omelette, a mysterious opening drink, something like an orange juice but not, and a more than decent coffee. During my breakfast experience fresh coconut juice (chilled) was delivered as well. The bill came to under $10 and was without doubt the best breakfast in the last 5 months in Mexico. Another bonus was learning that Estavan is planning to plant some old Aztec plants to enable a future magical breakfast treat. So I am already looking forward to my return in November - if only for the breakfast and maybe get a visit to the Rancho Santa Clara and see how the magical plants are coming along. I forgot to mention - the taste of the spicy salsa - unrivaled in all my Mexico travels of thirty years. Hot, gentle almost refined. Killing me softly as the song goes. I was thinking of how to pack the unfinished salsa - and then my cab came to take me to the bus terminal. -
