The deal of the day goes to a 1.75 litre bottle of rum for 99 pesos ($7.92). I looked it up, and this bottle of rum sells for $53.95 at the government run monopoly liquor store in Ontario, Canada.
It's a good day!
Driving into Valle de Bravo, there is only one two lane road from here and it gets busier the closer you get to town. It's just a line of cars moving slowly for at least a mile or so, and it's like that pretty much all day long. Yesterday, traffic came to a stop when we heard a huge bang. Sounded like an explosion, and we saw a cloud of dust rise about 20 cars ahead of us. Couldn't see what caused it, but people even got out of their cars to try and get a better look because it was such a loud bang. Traffic began moving pretty quickly though and it turned out that a tire had popped on one of those little ATV vehicles. There were bits of rubber all over the road and the guys had pushed their ATV off to the side of the road. Surprised if they have any hearing left...what a noise!
Did our groceries and came back to do some internet research about a summer job. While I was doing that, Ruth called from the balcony..."hey, we've got visitors...".
These four wandered up to chew on Chago's grass.
We only have a single burner camp stove to make meals, but Ruth is pretty inventive with figuring out decent meals even with the lack of an equipped kitchen. Yesterday, she made chicken stir fry and rice...best meal we've had in a week!
Cooking for two with a single burner camp stove.
The only drawback to this location is that we're close to the water and there are a few mosquitoes about around the dinner hour. No problem, we moved our table indoors with our fold up lawn chairs and enjoyed our meal.

Today, we're going to do some exploring. We're going to drive over to the dam that created this lake and then the village of Colorines.
