    Margret was the first to come around and suggest a Valentine’s party…a potluck on the rooftop.  We all readily agreed and the cooking began.

    Margret fue la primera persona que sugiere una fiesta para el Dia de San Valentin…que podemos hacerla en la terraza. Todos nosotros fácilmente concordamos y empezamos a cocinar.

    Tables were moved, chairs dragged upstairs and everyone began to gather.  There was a lovely warm wind that kept us cool as we relaxed in the heat of the

    afternoon.  Soon plates of food were brought and presented with much ooohing and aahhing.  We feasted on tiger shrimp, ceviche, roast pork and pastas.  There were salads, beans, chillies and breads.  For dessert we were served plates of apple pie and Margret made a cake that had Yarnel licking the plate.

    Las mesas y sillas fueron acomodadas en la terraza y todos comenzamos a reunirnos. El clima era encantador. Nos mantuvo frescos, nos sentimos relajamos y nos olividamos del calor de la tarde.

    Pronto los platos de los alimentos fueron traídos y presentados con mucho entusiasmo. Comemos camarones, ceviche, puerco y pastas. Había ensaladas, frijoles, chiles y pan. Para postres servimos platos de pay de manzana y Margret hizo un bizcocho rico que tuvo Yarnel que lamber el plato.

    OC decided to bring jello shots as his contribution to the afternoon and they definitely got the party started.  We all shared a beer or two with friends and watched the sunset begin it’s journey to the sea.  After that, people began to sneak away…two by two.  A great Valentine’s day in Mazatlan.

    OC decidió traer gelatinas de alcohol para contribuir la tarde y la fiesta comienza. Todos compartimos una o dos cervezas con amigos y miramos la puesta del sol. Después de eso, las personas comenzaron a irse…de dos en dos. Un gran día de los enamorados en Mazatlán.
