I truly thought it was raining last night. I sat down to have dinner with my great friends, Ron and Fred. After a few minutes, in an outdoor dining courtyard, I said, "Oh my gosh, it's starting to rain". But as I looked at the ground I didn't see any rain drops. Imagine my delight and surprise when my friends pointed out that it was the jacaranda blossoms hitting the top of the giant outdoor umbrella. The sound was better then any symphony I've ever heard in the past.
As we dined on delicious crepes, at La Creperie, the gentle sound persisted. We all felt like we were cosseted in an environment of serenity and tranquility. The food was superb. The conversation was, as usual, captivating and hilarious. The service was courteous.
It was the perfect way to say "adios" to my friends and San Miguel for a few months.
Not wanting the evening to end, we walked to the jardin where so much was going on that it was like a three ring circus.
What a perfect counterpoint to our dinner environment. We just sat down on the bench and took it all in. I'll post photos of last night when I get to the States manana, or maybe in a couple of days.
