lee&denny, Sunday morning, Hidalgo and Soggy Peso

By: lee (View Profile)
Date: 4/12/2012

Sunday morning dawned clear and sunny. We walked into town along the malecon, such an easy walk with the waves crashing beside us the whole way. Coming up to Central, we see people along the edge of the water, walking on the rocks.

Then we see the remains of “Pearl of the Caribbean” (or whatever name it was last known by). Gone. Wow, that was quite a site, a real shame that no one tried to do anything with the place. It survived many hurricanes so I would think the place was safe enough. Oh well, further change. We will see what comes next in this water front location.

We have breakfast at French Bistro. Lordy! They have such good breakfast.

I had the omelet with cheese, toast and home fries ($55p)

and Denny had the Surprise (why is it called that?)

with the fresh orange juice that I can’t get enough of (along with fresh grapefruit juice) when we’re on the island. Waiting for our meal, we are looking around, watching all the busy people.

and admiring the colorful buildings

Walking along on such a pretty sunny day, the colors of the buildings seem more vibrant.

There are a couple of stands at the market with real nice produce as well as a wide variety of groceries, colorful in their own way.

The sound of the tortillaria is more like the noise of heavy equipment.

Wandering Hidalgo on Sunday morning, there are no crowds. This will change soon enough. A glorious day for vendors and tourists.

I discovered that the memory was full on the video camera and had to find a place to put it on a disc. Long story short: Adrian’s Internet (beside the Super Express in Central) did the job: 20” and $60p later, I have a disc! And the camera is ready to go again. The HD filming is very good. I run into problems when I try to make a dvd or snapshots.


Speaking of the Super Express, here are photos for people who have never been there.

Denny has been looking forward to ribs at Soggy Peso since our last trip in October (!) so off we go.

When we get there at about 2pm, the place is SRO.

Do not back up!

Fredy was having fun with his string and spider. Mal was smiling because last Sunday they broke a record for most people served, and for selling 300 margaritas! We found out later that they broke the record again on the day we were there. We were lucky to share a table with two couples from Wisconsin, talking and laughing about previous trips and the great food at various places.

Denny had the combination platter which we shared (how many people can eat all of that by themselves?) with kolbasi, ribs, chicken, corn and potato salad, cornbread and a roasted jalapeno. Rounded out with cold XX. Oh yeah! We’re here for the food and entertainment and were not disappointed with either.
