Sunday we headed off to do some shopping. Our first stop, a little taco stand up the hill from here. They were serving these wonderful marinated beef tacos. They also had these large clay crocks that were filled with the sides. One was onions, and three different peppers that had all been fried together to make this wonderful garnish. Other was filled with beans, and the third with “salsas”…Let me tell you…I was in “Hog Heaven”… Our second stop was Mega Stores (a huge grocery store) in San Jose. We weren’t looking for much, but lettuce and other vegetables were high on our list. We had a chance to visit this store when we met Bonnie and Doug last Friday, and thought this store would be high on our list to find what we wanted in both variety and quality. Well, we thought it would anyway. On closer inspection and shopping, we didn’t find anything on our list that we wanted to come home with. Yes, we spent about $10 on something’s, but we were really disappointed. Ok, let’s head back to San Lucas. Now both of these towns here in “Los Cabos” have grown, more than you can imagine if you haven’t been here for a couple of years. Not only the huge mega stores, but the individual homes, golf courses, hotels, condos (both timeshare and individual homes), and “traffic cops”. Our next stop was Home Depot. I needed to find some very long nails and an extension cord for the Christmas lights. Found the cord but no nails… Ok, onto Costco…you can never go to Costco without spending something, and this was the case this time around. I can’t remember what we bought except a large container of mixed nuts…One more stop…Sorreanos. This is another bigger than huge store that carries groceries, clothing and on and on… Of course we spent a couple of Peso’s there as well. I really don’t remember why, but the lines at all the tills were just huge. They were running 28 tills and they were all packed with buyers wanting to check out. 5 years ago when we were there the store had just opened up and everything was well stocked and looking good. Well today…we most likely won’t be getting back. I know, it is the Christmas shopping time, but the disarray and the masses of people are just more than I want to punish myself with. About 4 in the afternoon we shuffled ourselves back home, completely “shopped out”, but without anything either of us had had on our list, especially lettuce.
