Puerto Vallata（プエルトバヤータ）メキシコ旅行記 後編
2016年 09月 01日
Some paddlers come and go, interrupt us one after another bringing some dresses, hats, sunglasses, accessories, scarves, carvings and even skeleton ornaments! It's quite a sight. They came over everyone on the beach trying to sell, but I didn't see anyone actually bought it. I said thousand times "No, gracious." as the way everyone said. I wonder how much they can earn one day and if they can live on that way...
The food at the hotel was great. They offers Seafood, Italian, French, Mexican, and even Japanese! We tried every restaurant; the seafood was fresh and great, Mexican restaurant had great choices of healthy vegetables and the French was second to none, but sometimes my stomach complains of missing Japanese food. Thanks goodness we had a Japanese restaurant here!
Maybe it'd be better not to have any expectations for Japanese IN MEXICO. It's said,"Expectation is the mother of disappointment".lol...（期待は失望の母） We had some salad for appetizer; my husband ordered seaweed salad that was okay, but mine was tofu salad with something 'tofu-like' and 'noodle-like' and awful dressing. My appetite stopped, but the next one MIGHT have been good...I still had left some expectation....For main dish, I had a tuna steak, well, that looked not bad, but it wasn't really 'food'. My husband ordered fried vegetable and beef thinking it shouldn't be wrong. I have no idea how to express that awful taste and wondered whether they actually tasted it before they served. I really wanted to say this out loud to everyone at the restaurant, "It was NOT Japanese. Don't get it wrong!" I could be a great chef here! No joking. BY the way, Japanese food in Seattle is good!
The hotel was all inclusive, we could get plenty of food at any restaurant as much as we want without calculating the prices and the tips. That was the reason I chose the all inclusive hotel. Good thing: easy, satisfied, no hungry. Bad thing: no appetite, spoiled. To tell the truth, I felt more fun in a local restaurant. Yes, there was a contradiction. A quote is well said, "Hunger is the Best Spice".
Thank you for your patience to read all! Although there were a lot of unexpected things happened to us, we could make it with fun through the trip. Thanks to my husband taking me there!！
