Lunch at Yves Restaurant in Ajijic

Yves has a beautiful pool but it is just for looks, not for swimming. Nicks is pointing to all the paintings on their wall of the Donkeys, Vino Blanco and Martini.

Dog is impatient for the lunch to come. Chico is watching from behind. I think he is a little bit afraid of Dog because he is so much bigger than Chico.

I think this one is Martini.


And this is his mother, Vino Blanco. I told the story on the blog awhile ago. Not long after I arrived here I was spending a lot of time at Yves restaurant in his old place by the water. Vino Blanco had a baby one day.  He was so cute. I took lots of photos of them together and put them on the blog. Then just a few days later we heard that the baby had died. We were all so sad. That was maybe eight years ago.  A few months ago I learned that the baby didn't die. He was taken to a farm and after he grew up was used to carry wood down from the mountains. Yve found him and brought him back to his new restaurant and to his mother. They both look happy there now. 


I love these paintings. They are magical. 

Shrimp taco salad. It was delicious.
