Refried beans

1PM - Refried beans
MacBook Pro and I are sitting at our usual table at the El Chaco Restaurante. I've ordered a plate of refried beans, tortilla chips, salsa and a bottle of water. My waitress is astounded! "Just beans?!", she asked. "You do not want fish or shrimp?"

It seems that my waitress was under the impression that Gringos do not like beans all by themselves. She believes that only Mexicans like beans without anything else! Hmmmmm?

I told my waitress, "Maybe I am really a Mexican at heart!"

PS: Refried beans are the cheapest food in Mexico.

MsTioga travels to Slate Peak
We on the TiogaRV Team are well aware that our MsTioga has a very brave heart! On June 14, 2005, MsTioga proved how brave she truly is by climbing to Slate Peak's summit at 7,488 elevation.
