We were too exhausted to do much on day 2, so Patty and Dave came out for the evening for a pizza dinner. Patty brought along her unbelievable lemon pie topped with marshmallow fluff. Calories cling to you just by inhaling in the same vicinity.
Today we toured some of the gorgeous old mansions in the downtown core, then went for a late lunch at Mi Tierra which was somewhat decorated for Christmas already. RRR tried authentic Mexican food for the first time. She was a bit leery of the guacamole but, in true pioneer spirit, she ate it and then ordered a plate of enchiladas with pollo (chicken) and mole (spicy cocoa based sauce). We then spent the afternoon at El Mercado, a funky Mexican market place where RRR showed remarkable restraint in her purchases.
The day was capped by a gift of fresh, home-baked pecan square made by the indomitable Patty. Nui is a bit concerned that she is not going to fit behind the wheel when we leave tomorrow.
