Trip Report Day Eighteen-Newbies Arrive & Queen Macabi


We spent a wonderful day showing Deb and Joe the middle part of the island.

They ventured out on their own and then met D at the tennis court. I finished up my media work. I made avocado toast for breakfast and then we walked to Chedraui for supplies. The walk home was so hot we all got in the pool.

We all needed showers and naps before we cabbed to Queen Macabi. What a lovely surprise the restaurant was! Read all about it here:

We had a really tough time finding Queen Macabi so I took pictures from their roof top to give people their bearings if they wanted to visit. You will see from the bottom photo that it was across from Doro’s (another restaurant that I have been dying to visit). I understand that the owner of Queen Macabi have put up a large banner/sign recently. So hopefully the cabbies will learn the location because our driver didn’t have a clue!

We walked through La Gloria (I think) and showed Deb and Joe one of our many favourite restaurants-Basto’s Grill. We also ran into Sergio who lovingly introduced us to his son Max.

We still had some time to kill so we dropped into (or shall I say “Climbed up to”), Chile & Maiz.

We had scheduled a visit with Hortencia and the rest of our Mexican family. Marcello and Hortencia host us every year for dinner. Usually it is Hortencia’s idea but this year it was Marcello’s. We wanted to all be together to celebrate his good health! Hortencia made her amazing chicken mole. Joe is a contractor back home and has just completed a major reno of his house. Hortencia’s family has been renovating too, so Joe was showing them the construction difference when you build a house in Canada to withstand frigid temperatures.

We hopped the bus home but wouldn’t let us off at Chedrui as we had hoped, so we rode into town and attempted to connect with Joe’s friends at El Patio, to no avail. So we cabbed home and listened to a late Jets game.
