The Surrey Stadnyks plus Cholovik are embarking on the Norwegian Jewel on Sept. 20.
In Houston, we’ll hop into a rented car and 5 hours later, look who we’ll see!
Four stops in Mexico! I love Mexican food J.
The first time Diana and I were in Mexico was back in 1973. We bought bus tickets in Winnipeg for Mexico City. Two buses loaded at the same time for our first stop in the United States. A woman on our bus was very anxious about her husband. “Bill, Bill,” she cried from the bus entry step, “What good are you to me if you’re on the wrong bus?”
It took us 3 days, I think, and sometimes we had to change buses in the middle of the night.
We were so exhausted by the time we reached Monterey, Mexico, that we decided to stay a couple of days there. Our first restaurant meal was not a winner: there were goat carcasses hanging in the window – we ordered soup: it came watery and blackish. I had never heard of black beans and I wasn’t impressed.
Diana, in front of the Cathedral in Monterey . . . I think
We enjoyed Monterey. On the last day, we even found a restaurant we liked. Where glasses of cold water were placed in front of us. We had been so careful not to drink anything but bottled water, but, suddenly, we both just gulped it down. . . with no ill effects. We’d have liked to stay longer but Mexico City was calling.
Mexico City : We couldn't speak Spanish, but somehow we got about everywhere on public transit. And we shopped -- I bought a little green plaid jumper that I still think is cute. Nicole even wore it just a few years ago.
Chapultepec Palace . . . I think
“Tssst, Gringa!” Everywhere we went.
Mexico, hot, hot, HOT!
