To start this off for those who don't know, Iyamscifi2 and I travel together to PV in June, and this is our 3rd year. We met on the forum years ago and got together in PV when our schedules jived. So, we got along so great, that we started this tradition of staying 3 weeks to a month in PV in a condo together...this year a month.
Our husbands are the greatest, they don't mind and wish us fun, then they don't have to be dragged around to every nook and cranny in the heat, but we slow it down for them when we come in December. Last December husbands met for the first time and that was special, they hit if off and I'm sure talked about how much we wear them out lol.
I was here a day ahead of Iyam. My travel day was nerve racking. My plane from Kansas City to Dallas sat on the tarmac in Dallas because there wasn't an available gate. We were early by 30 minutes which I thought was great because I had originally only had 45 minutes to change planes. But we sat on the tarmac eating way into my 45 minutes even, so in the end I had 15 minutes to make an international connection. I ran and prayed!
I got there 2 minutes before take off and they had given away my seat. But, they found me another seat, then the plane was full. They could have turned me away so I was grateful they didn't. Wondered if my luggage would make it though. Then there was a guy in the middle seat, I was against the window, and I won't say anything more about him other than he has a mother that must love him.
Luggage arrived, yea! Got through the airport in fine time, long lines at customs and people were complaining, but it didn't bother me as the line was moving lickity split and I had dodged a bullet with making my second flight.
I had a joyful reunion with my very good long time friend lopo123 and her husband for happy hour and dinner. We just decided to stay at Langostino's for sunset, and had a great meal. Most mentionable was the Shrimp and Pulpo Ceviche appetizer - chopped small, a must for me. A huge serving with sliced avocado on top, and so divine. Cost was $130 pesos and this is enough for a meal. Do watch out for the Shrimp Diablo, it's a lot spicier than they said.
Next morning did some food shopping and a walk about. I had a hard time finding my Mexican brand Lala Yogurt, sorry I don't eat any yogurt except that, and yeah it's got sugar but I only have a dab every morning when in PV. Nobody had it anymore except ...wait for it...of course the market on Amapas.
Went to the beach, and Iyam arrived...and the party begins! Saw JR for Happy Hour and then off to Warique which will be covered in the next report.
