Tamales

Set me straight. Where to go for your best tamal. Had them at the end of Juarez and 5th both sweet and savory. Fooled me because in Guadalajara
all the tamales are in corn husks. The one in corn husk on Juarez is sweet and the one in platano leaf are savory.

Any ideas where to go tht is not to far

The ones we like best are the sweet ones by the bus station

We have tried tamales in various places in Playa and the ones we like best are the sweet ones sold by the ladies at the cart by the bus station, on 5th and Juraez. I think they start selling them late afternoon and into the evening until they run out.

Street side, a lady sells a least 6 kinds across 30th from Mega (or is it across from Walmart). Sets up almost every day about noon I think. Very good.

Thought you were headed down in Dec-are you down shortly? We'll be down for a couple of weeks soon and might need to get a beer to compare notes on Plymouth and all if you are in town.

We arrive 12/4 Sunday, when are you there?

How does Plymouth fit in, just curious, I'd enjoy having a beer and chat.

Thought I'd seen you refer to a Dec trip before but then your "just day's now" made me think you were down in Nov also.

Going with a buddy day after tomorrow til 11/11.Back in March for almost 3 weeks with the spouse.
When I had asked some time back for your "40miles SE..." reference we discussed Plymouth/Rocky Nook as I had lived there back in the '80s.

OK, yeah I remember now when you said Rocky Nook, you lived by the rotary in Plymouth too if I remember right! We may be back in March too.
