Im hoping to be in MX for two months. Really mild here in southern B.C. There hasn't even been frost yet.
yes for sure old friend, i have your coffeemaker packed away in the closet. we will have to get out on a few adventures for sure ..we had a very bad storm here yesterday, 45 knot winds and snow, im right close to the ocean, so we only got a couple inches here, but i bet in the mountain areas they probably got dumped on

The good news is that William, the owner of the former Yaxche will be opening a new restaurant, The PIT, on the NE corner of calle 38 and AV. 1. It should be open in late December. And what a cool jungle setting. You have to see the work being done there!
A "few doors down = east of", Wicho (he started Los Aquachiles, La Finísima Caguamería de Esquina, etc.) will be opening Trujillo Cantina de Selva Cocina Mexicana with the Grand Opening party set for December 10th. This place is really cool looking also. Another "natural" jungle setting.

Rob, see you soon. We will have to try the Pozoleria (Pozole) on AV. 30.
Hey Al Stick with Dona Pala's for pozole the pozoleria is just OK. They have good chicken mole though. Russell made better pozole when he was at Carboncitos.

itīs not doņa pola.
not doņa polo - the place is too hot to be a pole
not doņa pala - that means shovel - not sure you want to eat in a place where the
lady of the house is called the shovel lady.
so itīs doņa paula, of course.
but I think, you have established the place as ī hellīs kitchen ī already.
