I have noticed that the lights around Grand Salinas have all been restored to working order. When we arrived many weren't working.
I have been in Chedraui a few times now. In Dec. they had lots of peanut butter and multiple brands. The first week of Jan. they were down to 2 brands and the large jar was crunchy. They haven't had PB for almost 2 weeks. I have never seen a beach chair, although there were reports of some when they first opened. As has been reported...if you see it you better buy it. It may never appear again...lol. On that same note, I have looked the island over for a square plastic tablecloth...there are none! Every restaurant on the island has scads of them, but you can't buy them here. Only in Cancun according to the locals I have asked.
I have been volunteering at the English school. What fun. When I see the students on the street they are very anxious to test their English. I made chocolate no bake cookies( my reason for the PB, and I have no oven) and took them to the class. Of course they loved them and that was my Spanish word for the day. I am trying to learn a new word each day.
The new malecon is really coming along nicely. I can't believe how fast construction can take place if they want it to.
I had chicken soup at La Lomitas one day....huge bowl and so good. Last Sunday I stopped at Kash Keken Chuc for some chicken and ribs to have during the ballgame (:(, I'm a Denver fan) , but mostly I fix something at the apartment.
Some friends from the island play on a fast futball team(soccer). I have been watching some of their games, but they usually playbat 9 or 10pm. I'm tired, but here is the whole family out cheering on dad. It is a great local family experience.
Last Sat. it rained and rained most of the day. Lots of street flooding. That has been the only total rain day since I got here Christmas eve.
I have been treating myself to a manicure every week. The price is right and she does freehand designs...they look so nice...of course, not doing much helps keep them nice!
Headed to the North Beach, so I better get going. So sorry you guys up north are freezing.
