Here we revisited the tastes of pollo pibil, cochinita, sopa de lima, salsa de pepita, and vaporcitos, not to mention a refreshing chaya drink. (If you hadn't heard, chaya is the new spinach, with boatloads of calcium!)
Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately for the kids, we first visited Santa Lucia park (because the restaurant hadn't opened yet), and saw that they had put in a Dairy Queen! I let them choose something small as not to spoil their appetite - DQ sandwiches - while Dave and I tried the "duos", ice cream sandwiched between 2 small chips a'hoy cookies.
Before leaving the downtown park, we stopped in a souvenir shop that had recently opened in order to feel really touristy ;) Then, on our way to lunch, we saw a fun sign advertising tours and stopped to snap a picture to commemorate the day.
Now, on the way downtown, we had stopped at a coffee shop so Dave could buy more beans to roast his coffee at home. He has become friends with the owner at Cafico, where he always buys his stuff. Being a "client" has its perks- they invited us to stop by again after we ate, and said they would have 5 frappuccinos waiting for us! Federico, the owner, has always been exceptional, even making home deliveries at times when we've run out of coffee.
