But our fifth year may be a little different. Now that Whiskey is gone, we want to start exploring outside of North America. We have a lot of options now, including motorhome exchanges, backpacking, hostels, couchsurfing, and house sitting. We want to do long term trips to South America, Australia, Europe, and Asia over the next few years. We also want to hike Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa at some point in the next couple of years.
Yesterday was Barb's birthday and she asked if we wanted to join her and Sal for lunch in Mazamitla. The town is about 10 kms away from here and is a popular tourist spot for people from Gaudalajara. There are a lot of rental cabins and weekend homes there and it's a pretty place.
Sal, Barb, Kevin, Ruth out for lunch
The restaurant is a little bit upscale, but still has reasonable prices. Ruth and I shared a plate of their house special fajitas made with chicken, beef, and shrimp. It was great and we almost couldn't finish it between us. I had a beer and Ruth had a glass of Sangria. The bill including tip was 220 pesos ($17.16) for the two of us.
The walls of this restaurant are covered with pictures of different spots from around the world.
Then Sal took us for a tour around an expensive area of town where there are some nice homes.
Check out the fake plastic deer on the balcony.
