Saturdays in Tequila
Tequila, Tequila, Tequila
We ended up having a restful morning hanging in the RV with our traveling pets. I swear our oldest cat Dude loves it here, she’s all about lounging in the heat! After some serious cuddle time we decided to go out for an actual restaurant meal for dinner. I did a bit of research and saw that the Cholula restaurant had great reviews online. The online menu was in Spanish but it looked promising for sure! Definitely pricier than our usual Mexican choice but it’s nice to do occasionally.
We walked to the main square and it was packed! Friday, it was filled with school trips and tour buses. Today, tour buses and locals! Everyone was out enjoying the day and the square. A band was playing in the center gazebo, children running around playing, families enjoying time together and people relaxing at the local restaurants. A really lovely sight!
I’m so proud of us! We walked into the main doors and told the hostess that we wanted a table for two for dinner all in Spanish. She told us the wait would be 30-40 minutes. She asked for my phone number so I gave that to her (my Mexican phone number even, am I already integrated?? Just kidding, lol). It was definitely still awkward, but it was a complete interaction that both sides understood. We decided to walk around the square while we waited.
I got the call that our table was ready and it was my first time saying “Hola” while answering the phone. Is that customary? Is it just Hola when answering the phone or something else? Clearly, I need to find a Spanish instructor soon! We got our table on the second floor of the restaurant. The server, Devon and I conversed pretty easily as we ordered our food and drinks.
For all the food and the 2 drinks we had our bill came to 569 pesos ($39.54 CAD/$29.63 USD) before tip. Expensive compared to our other meals here. However, the quality was really great. If we had this level of meal back home in Halifax, Nova Scotia it easily would be triple the cost. Not something we will do every day (can’t beat those 2 dollar tacos!) but we enjoyed Cholula immensely.
A Fun Evening
We headed back home after dinner and Devon took Goof out for a walk while I chatted with friends from home. While they were walking, they noticed the square had transformed again and now there were tons of fancy cars there!
Once Devon got back we decided to head out once more to see what’s going on.
That’s it for today! We’re thinking to pack up tomorrow but we will see what the day brings. Thank you for reading!
