Don't mind chilly nights, but so long as it's warm enough for a light jacket when doing some hiking we'll be fine.
Being chilly is the least of our worries here in Puerto Escondido. Here...I'll show you what I mean...
We went for a long walk today. Down Playa Zicatela to our favourite breakfast spot. It was actually almost lunch time, but we had breakfast anyhow. Then to Playa Principal where we checked out some construction where there used to be an RV camping place. Now there's no room for RV's, and a commercial strip mall has been built there. But one of the tenants is TelCel with a new customer service center. That's a good thing actually.
Ruth, looking at the boats. No chilly thoughts around here.
Not very busy. November is just the beginning of high season.
We walked through town to get to Playa Angelito. Mary and Alfredo had taken us there the very first time we were here back in early 2009. Nice little spot that mostly the locals go to. In fact we only saw one or two other gringos. Lots of empty tables and by then we were pretty thirsty. Ruth decided to treat herself to a freshly made pina colada for 50 pesos ($4.25) and I had an ice cold Victoria beer. My favorite, and only 20 pesos ($1.70). The beer was refreshing, and so was the price. Imagine buying a beer at a beachside restaurant for under $2. I love Mexico.
Nice chilly pina colada!
Nice calm beach. Great for kids.
We walked from there to the Bodega Aurerra grocery store. It was open today, so I guess the protesters took the day off. We bought some groceries and some wine and a 12 pack of Victoria beer for me. They had some leftover boxes that were special for the November 1st "Day of the Dead" celebration, and I picked up a box for 127 pesos ($10.80). It came with a special prize inside!
Three nice coasters!
A box of good beer, at a decent price, and with a treat inside. What more could you ask for??
