"What are those Kookie Kinnons up to this time?" you might ask! This week, we are in the beautiful city of Guadalajara, capital of the state of Jalisco for a big furniture expo. Our flight was packed but otherwise fine. We flew with Volaris. Two words: FREE BOOZE. That's right, while all of the majors are cutting back and adding fees, Volaris is handing out Cuba Libres like they're tic tacs. We did not partake on this flight but it was certainly there for the partaking...free of charge!

We arrived late in the evening which was fortuitous as the traffic from the airport to centro is reported to be maddening during the daytime work hours. I was seated next to a lovely young lady who was on he way home after a brief vacation with her father in Cancun. She gave me some great tips on things to do and see and warned me to build in plenty of travel time when getting to and fro to our meetings.I will heed her advice and plan ahead.

After checking in to Hotel Morales, we popped into 'La Chata', a brightly lit cafe a few blocks down from the hotel. It didn't look like much from the outside and the 'order by picture' menu did not inspire but we were now starving and willing to eat just about anything. We were very surprised by the excellent food and service. We ordered aracherra and a combo platter with chicken mole and chili relleno and everything was delicious. The tortillas were freshly made as were all of the accompanying salsas and the meat was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Just goes to show you really can't judge a book by its cover.
