The town itself is a mix of hippies and money; along the main street is a funky hotel or two, the occasional fonda or coffee shop, but on the side roads (well paved, mind you) are haciendas and estates worth millions. I walked the weekly market and picked up some produce for my dinners for the next week: cebollas, carotas y pimientos para mis ensaladas. Tengo lechuga y champiñones. Total cost for enough veggies for three or four meals was about $5. The pineapple pictured was $1.50 and oh, is it good! The guys sawing on violins para propinas probably made their money by folks paying them to stop. They were awful.
We hit up La Casa de Lourdes for lunch. I decided on a cashew chicken with tamarind sauce and green rice dish. And dessert. Pretty damn delicious and decadent. I figured that was my meal for the day, so I went all out. I needed some solids after closing the bar the night before. I probably had more beer that night than I've had in years. I think I woke with still a buzz.
I may hop a bus and come back in the next week or two to do a bit more exploring.
