Arrived PV 3:30 PM their time (2:30 EDM time), taxi to Villa del Palmar where Dave Olson was waiting for us at the front door. Dave brought me some Lamb´s from Edm duty free, God Bless him
Dinner was good, the margaritas were better. The young people went their way and we made our way down to the malecon to see the fireworks. People everywhere! We managed to get into a bar (I´ve forgotten the name) where we could have even more margaritas. The fireworks display was awesome - more like an artillery display. Around 1:00 AM we headed back, walking. Very crowded and dark and I fell and ripped open my thumb. Maybe the margaritas had something to do with it. ¨My öwn damn fault¨. We got a taxi about half way home and crashed.
Jan. 1 - Nursed hangovers and commandered a taxi to take us and our 6 bags to Rincon de Guayabitos. 600 pesos (about $60 CAD). It took about an hour. Arrived Rincon about 2:30 PM (now Edmonton time) and settled in to the Brisamar. This is NOT the Ritz. But the price is right and it´s charming. Went out for dinner and had a nice meal. We´re getting to know our fellow inmates and out shopping for housekeeping items. Lots of Mexicans here as school holiday until Jan. 7.
