Travelers Rest; Foodies, Never

The Cuevas' have been travelling in the U.S., attending a wedding and visiting family, and are now on their way home, after a few days of wandering and eating in México City.

Many restaurants were visited in the U.S. and a few in Mexico. I've been too busy to blog. Then, in a last minute frenzied farewell, I left my digital camera in my family house. I'm making arrangements to have it carried in safe hands back to me.

Meanwhile, here are a few selected photos from restaurant and home meals we enjoyed.

That´s right. Rub it in our faces, the fact that about all we get in Mexico is more cheese and corn.

Felipe: Cheesy popcorn is good!

Casona Rosa: We ARE lucky. Yesterday, Doña Cuevas and I marked our 42nd Wedding Anniversary together, Tonight we join friends for dinner at a Catalán restaurant, El Racó.

It's been an enjoyable trip, with only a few difficult parts, but we are looking forward to resting up at home.

Teresa, that cannolo was at Diana's Italian Restaurant and Catering, New Windsor, NY (Near Stewart-Newburgh International Airport. It was the highlight of an otherwise lackluster meal.

Those who compared it with the one at Cosimo's On Union, up the road a ways, said that Diana's was better. Personally, I can do without the gratuitous chocolate squizzles.
