Tuesday morning we walked into town, the streets were closed to buses to allow the flocks of pilgrims access to the Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe. We joined the crowd only two blocks from our home and then went in search of the restaurant Mariscos Cisneros which our landlord said was great. Unfortunately it was closed Tuesday so we continued to the public market where we found the perfect very large zippered carry on bag for the treasures we have purchased and lunch on the beach at La Langosta Loca.
Dinner, dancing and fireworks in the square in front of the Cathedral de Virgin de Guadalupe last night in Puerto Vallarta. We got tacos de birria, a shredded beef stewed in delicious sauce, topped with onions, cilantro and hot sauce. Then dancing with the locals. On to the malecon, the boardwalk, for the Eagles football game on TV (no TV at home and computer streaming not working either). $1 USD for Corona beers or margueritas, we stayed for the whole game. And finally to another hidden treasure: a taco stand serving exclusively cow head parts: brains, tongue, lips, eyes and some glands I could not identify. Delicious without onions or cilantro – just a splash of very hot sauce. And to top the evening off, a young girl appeared with a handmade papier-mâché headdress which she kindly donned for a photo.
