A great day in Mexico!

We arrived at Suchitlan up in the hills of the state of Colima, Mexico
This is our oldest son, his two year old son David, my husband David and
our six year old granddaughter, Carmen.
This is the view as you enter Los Portales, the open-air restaurant.
They are well-known for their cream that is used on their many dishes of beef,
chicken and rabbit.
Carmen demonstrates spreading the cream on a blue corn tortilla.
After she covered the tortilla with cream she sprinkles a small amount
of sea salt on top, rolled it up and enjoyed it as a flauta, a flute.
After Suchitlan, we drove to city of Colima, the state's capital, for
a walk through the mall. It was time for an ice cream
treat at the Golden Arches!

It was a great day. My son's wife was under the weather so was unable to join us. Otherwise, it was a perfect day!
