LOCATION: Housesitting in Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico
WEATHER: (I sound like a broken record): Sunny. High 86
Lilia, our maid, arrived with George’s birthday flan that she had made at her home. (I had secretly asked for her to make George one, at the recommendation of our homeowner). His actual birthday is tomorrow, but she doesn’t come on Fridays.
This is the flan pan she uses.
She told me that it isn’t hard to make. Condensed milk, eggs, and I’m not sure what else. (Notice her nails…..)
We caught an early bus to Ajijic so I could attend a line-dancing class. This cowboy was sharing the bus stop with us…
After the class, we walked into Ajijic to meet a guy who is a cousin of our homeowners. He had some of their mail that we will pack up for them. A Californian, he has lived here 4 years and loves it. We talked so much that he joined us for lunch at a nice restaurant.
In the evening, a couple came over for sangria and chips & salsa. He is Californian; she is Mexican. They are building a small RV park just a few blocks from our house. Super nice people.
DINNER: Asian fried rice using last of rotisserie chicken and lots of veg. Dessert – flan, of course!
