We took a drive to the neighbouring town of Barra de Navidad. We got there in time for breakfast which we had at a little sidewalk cafe. Norma had crepes and I had a vegetable egg scramble washed down with a glass of freshly squeezed Jugo de Noranja (Orange Juice). It was very good.
When I published my budget for last winter in Mexico a couple of people commented that they could not believe we eat out so often. Last year it averaged once a day and this year is looking like it will be the same if not even more. I really enjoy the local food and even more,I enjoy being around the people. Street side restaurants are usually very reasonable and we do not have the most expensive thing on the menu. When you sit at a table in Mexico, that table is yours for the night. No one will give you a bill until you ask for it so your table is a ringside seat for all the action on the square that evening. You can people watch, eat, have a drink, order desert or a cafecito and just take your time. The waiter will never give you the impression that he wants you to leave. This is one of the nice things about Mexico.
