LOCATION: Housesitting in Jocotepec, Mexico
WEATHER: Sunny. High 87
We scurried around in the morning, to catch a bus to Ajijic so I could attend another line-dancing class. After the class, we met the couple that are going to take over for us at this housesitting assignment. They are currently doing an assignment on the east side of Lake Chapala (whereas we are on the west side).
We drove with them to Viva Mexico for lunch (the restaurant we had gone to for the native dancing). First, we shared a queso fundido (a kind of cheese fondue with tortillas)
They are a delightful couple.
The restaurant is in a quaint village where they are having a lot of Easter celebrations.
They drove us back to our house, so we could orient them to the house and neighborhood.
We spent a quiet afternoon, and I finished another book. (See below)
DINNER: The homeowners had left us a casserole of meatballs and potatoes. To that, I added cauliflower, onions, and curry powder and other herbs for a nice curry dish.
BOOK: I finished up this little paperback that we had picked up at some free book exchange. “Doc” by R.E. Losee, MD is a memoir/autobiography of a physician who tells his story of being a physician in rough, rural Montana starting in 1950. He often mentions my former employer, Mayo Clinic, where he admired physicians and to where he referred some of his patients. I would give it a 8 out of 10.
