Lilly Serves Lunch in La Carpio

POSTED IN | 11:52 PM

The noon hour approached today and a mutual hunger rumbling ensued. So. Steve and I ventured to the local trough for sustenance. And here's Lilly (pronounced "Lee Lee"), cooking up our goods. I wondered vaguely about sanitation, but figured I need to build some antibodies at some point. So far I'm feeling fine...

Fanta Fanta...want a Fanta...

Pinball wizard. A 20-cent round provided entertainment while the food cooked.

Yee-yah! Pork chop, beans, rice, cabbage. And after this, Lilly hooked me up with some amazing fried plantains. The best $3 meal I've had in a long time.

*Sigh* Naked plate contentment. Gave the bone to a local pooch. Lilly told me to come back again. And I don't see why not.

Got a shot with "La Abuela" (The Grandma) of La Carpio. She came in the restaurant while we ate. Steve calls her his girlfriend. He claims she's under 25 and just caught a lot of rays in her formative years. I'm skeptical. But she's a lovely, warm woman all the same. Truly like a grandma.

    I love the local eatery. Looks scrumptious. As for your new grandma...make sure she understands the word dinner...that's CE-NA! If you have any trouble getting yerself understood, just yell.

    You're looking bronzeado.

    Hey John, it's Mike. I was wondering what panoramic stitching program you use. I've been meaning to find a good one, and yours look pretty darn good.

    Oh yeah, I am now using my MacBook Pro woo!
