|Our posada in downtown Guadalajara|
Fortunately, we remembered a store that had a few coffeemakers in the window, and last night we determinedly made our way back to this store!! On the way, Chris confessed that he did not know the word for a coffeemaker in Spanish, but was confident he could learn the word if he could explain the process of making coffee. Once again, humor presents itself in every interaction...
Chris (in Spanish): How do you say "to make coffee"? (meant to say "the thing that makes coffee")
Girl: To make coffee.
Chris: Oh, you just say 'to make coffee'?
Chris: Good. We would like to see the 'to make coffee' over there.
By the time we walked out of the store with our cafetera (the correct word) we had all had a pretty good laugh.
We've enjoyed good eating out...mostly tacos. I'm learning most Mexican cuisine consists of meat, corn tortillas, and a variety of sauces arranged just a little differently. However, there is variety in the sauces and the way the meat is prepared....and it is excellent! So savory with a nice hint of picante spice!

This brings us back to the coffeemaker. One thing we overlooked in our desperation to get some good coffee, was the less than ideal electrical situation in our hotel room. With the TV, alarm clock, lamp, and cord for our laptop using up all the available outlets, we had no place to plug in the machine!! No worries, the coffeemaker had to replace the alarm clock....and the aroma of coffee woke us up to face a new adventure this morning! Ahh.....
