Panqueques

11:30am - I'm at Mr. Jons again. Because of their "panqueques." Here in Guatemala, pancakes are pronounced "pahn-kah-cays."

I feel a bit badly that I am blogging to you mostly about where I am going out to eat. But, what I am doing here in Panajachel is mostly going out to eat.

That does not mean that I am not having a good time just being here in this foreign land. I love just being here. It is really great for me to simply eat out and observe what goes on in Panajachel each day.


Is restaurant tipping voluntary?
1pm - Not here in the Town of Panajachel. My check at Mr. Jon's had 6% added.

Not that I mind having 6% added. Because I usually add 20% for a tip.


Garnachas
7pm - Every day since arriving in Panajachel, I've watched a lady street vendor selling what appear to be very small tostadas. Her stand is on Avenida Santader, right near the 3-way intersection. A very good location!

This evening I decided to eat Garnachas for my supper. The price is 3-garnachas for 10 Quetzales [$1.30US]

Being cautions, I ordered one garnacha. Then another. Then the 3rd one. These things are good!
