|The biggest shrimp I've ever seen, Really!!|
Below you are not seeing wrong. It is indeed me holding the head of a fish!!! "The eye: the most nutritious part of the fish." These are the words that came out of my mother's and abuela's mouth as I was growing up. Now I tell them to my children.

These banana boats were a ton of fun. Toto got scared and didn't want to go fast. He asked to be dropped off so we did and then Katy and I went at full speed. Katy is so fearless!!! She reminds me of someone.....(?)
The guy driving the boat had lived in West Valley and was currently there because he had gotten deported. How sad. I obviously don't know the circumstances of his deportation but his English was perfect. He didn't even have an accent which led me to believe that he had lived in the US most of his life.
We also went sightseeing. Puerto Peñaso is a small town so there is not much to see. I was fascinated mostly with the things that identify their daily life and their routines. Like for example:
|The fast seafood car|
|pan mexicano/mexican bread|
|The delivery "truck" of gummy bears|
|The local streets in the shopping district|
We found two churches: The LDS Church...
And the Catholic Church...
And we also did the tourist stuff:
|The monument in the main plaza or Malecon (the port)|
|shopping for gifts|
The typical design and interior decoration of restaurants and homes in the area:
