Lunch #1: Todos Santos, Mexico. We were told that Todos Santos, a hot, dusty 2-hour drive north from Cabo San Lucas in Baja California, was an artist colony and a picturesque village. It was actually a dump, at least the part we got to see. The "art" was to be found in tacky souvenir shops. But lunch was really lovely -- halibut and shrimp in a mild, pale green sauce, with pomegranate seeds on the side!
And then for dessert, fresh mango. I never thought I liked mango when I had it at home, but this was superb, and as we all got up to get back on the bus I ate any mango slices left behind by my fellow travelers. Maybe this was a different variety than we get in the U.S. grocery? Or it was ten times fresher? Or I've had an enlightenment?
