Wow, thanks for all of the interesting and well thought out comments regarding my restaurant situation the other night. I agree with those of you who think the waitress messed up and forgot to put the order in. If that was indeed the case, I wish she would have just come right out and said that to us! We probably would have been more accommodating and felt bad for the girl. Anyhow, I guess we'll never know.
Many of you will have read about the horrible casino fire in Monterrey, Mexico which killed 52 people a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, you don't hear much about the follow up to that. Our friend Chris is an RV'er who lives just outside of Monterrey and wrote the following this morning...
The attack on the casino has turned into a major scandal and one that continues to unweave itself as we speak. They are kicking butt and killing or capturing so many bad guys it is historical. There are more military, federal and state police roaming the streets of the Monterrey metro area. I am hoping that all of this has reached its peak and we will be on the road to recovery. Many towns in the neighboring state of Tamaulipas have been returned to their citizens and in very good condition, painted, cleaned up with houses, businesses, parks, plazas and streets being repaired. We are seeing some good news now for a change.
When we travel through Mexico with the RV we are often stopped by the military and the federal police. We like and understand the fact that they do this for our protection and after their inspection we always thank them for their security.
Our floor is almost done! I have to buy another piece of trim, and finish the edging, then it's finally done. For such a small area it sure was time consuming. But we're super happy with it! Pictures tomorrow!
