Our view today of the rooms,grounds and pool. I had a Belgium waffle. They make the best waffles I've ever had anywhere.
After eating we took a drive up the Malecon to see the decorations going up for Carnaval. The theme this year is "Mazatlantida – The story that emerged from the waves"
Now the beach side lanes are torn up. The big concrete blocks are the tunnel.
Lifting a piece of the tunnel up to put it under the street. They are working 24/7 - Carnaval is early this year. Starting February 4th.
Most of the pieces under the road.
And back to some of the decorations along the beach side of the road.
This one is in the Plazuela Machado.
The break dancers were busy entertaining the lunch crowd. A cruise ship was in so there were a lot of people in the plaza. We didn't stop, just drove through.
Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever cooks at home here. There are a million little restaurants set up.
This is a candy store right near the main plaza. They make sugar coated peanuts as you watch. They are delicious.
I don't really know what is going on here. There are a bunch of silver forms sitting in the street. Looks like a big puzzle. Will be interested to see what finally appears.
This is a mail man. He is delivering mail. Riding his scooter on the sidewalk. The mail is in the box and the saddle bags.
We stopped at a bunch of vendor stalls on the Malecon because I want a t-shirt for this years Carnaval. But didn't find one. Bill however did find the polo shirts he likes - he wants the kind that has a pocket and they are really hard to find anymore. See the pocket in the one he is wearing. He puts his sun glasses in the pocket.
We did a few more things but will write about them tomorrow.
