Stuff that Started Life in the Sea

I tell you, when it comes to ingesting fish and other stuff that started life in the sea, then the west coast of Mexico is hard to beat. In San Blas, if you stop, close your eyes, spin around and open them again, then you are facing a fish restaurant.

No messing

These restaurants are rarely more than shacks with palm roofs and earth floors. The cooking is done over a very slow burning grill, more smoking than grilling really. The menu is look at the grill and choose what you want.

Lenguado!
Just a break from pictures of fish monotony.

The market is overwhelmed with fish stalls.

Fancy a snack?
She makes me fresh ceviche, which around here is mashed fished, carrot,onion,garlic,tomato, cilantro and lots of lime juice.

I go to an upmarket restaurant, one that has a menu.

Oysters are good for the libido.
Fresh octopus with fried banana .

You look out onto the ocean. Frigate birds and pelicans drift by. The meal, with 2 mugs of homemade limonade, comes to $8:00.

I eat a lot of shrimp and ceviche.
Where I live at the moment
I am not roughing it.

    My daughter spent a year on a student exchange in Tepic, Nayarit a few years ago and thinks your journey is “pretty awesome”. She is now a fan of your blog thus reducing the average age of your increasingly aged readership, a little.

    Amazing that the food is better than that from the seas of Okinawa, which I found sooo delectable! But I suss that that which you are now used to will of course be bettered by the new experience. How lovely to experience the both!! ~Rachel ps:the black&whites are again appearing on the pastures adjacent SLAC…I saw such in Scotland too, in the wayback, and love the memories. HAPPY NEW NEW dear friend!!
