We went out for dinner with Teré and Miguel to celebrate Jerry's birthday. I was a bit of a drip, but it was still a great evening. We went to a Japanese restaurant that, I think unintentionally, had a Spanish flavor. I wonder if that makes it Spapanese. The highlight was the tempura ice cream dessert.
|TERÉ ON SAN GERALDO'S BIRTHDAY.|
I haven't been to Los Niños del Flor the past three mornings. San Geraldo has gone on his own and brought home a tostada for me, which I have with my tea (not microwaved) and honey. I've become quite the gourmet in the kitchen.

The staff at Niños del Flor speak just a few words of English. I probably wouldn't be exaggerating if I told you they speak a total of nine English words among them. Every morning when we arrive, they all call out from behind the bar, "Very good, very nice." Last week, San Geraldo decided those were our names. He told them he was "Very Good" and I was "Very Nice." They loved it and those have now officially become our names — although the owner's son thinks that Jerry is probably "very nice," too. Oddly, he didn't mention thinking that I was also probably "very good."
