Something I drew before and after a breakfast of Ranchero Potatoes, 2 eggs and beans, at La Esquina. I’m afraid the breakfast was better than the drawing.

1) La Esquina en una tranquila tarde de lunes. Solo el Viejo dibujante y su zalamerode arandano delicioso.

2)En pocos minutos la escuela saldra y estudiantes liberados se corriente mas alla Casa Dracula a las afueras de la puerta.

3) Cuesta creer que hace solo 48 horas este lugar era cocinar con salsa, cumbia, reggae, Afro-Cubano. Por eso nos gusta mucho es La Esquina.

If we had to pick a favorite hangout in Todos Santos we would probably say La Esquina for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that it is within easy walking distance of Casa Fisherrero. Add to that the excellent food (including scrumptious smoothies and coffee drinks), wonderful service from beautiful women, good music (live and recorded), Wednesday Farmer’s Market, a lush garden to get lost in, great internet connectivity, a perfect ten in overall comfort, dog friendly, I could go on but let the pictures convey what they can:

We went to the Farmers Market at La Esquina this morning. Gail bought a pair of yoga pants, I got a calendar of lucha libre stars. We had a huge breakfast sandwich each that will last us through lunch (we’ll be snacking on leftovers on the way to Cabo).

While we were eating and/or shopping we enjoyed once more the vocal stylings of Jewels and Johnny Nation. We first saw them at Cafelix a few nights ago. They have a fantastic inventory of pop, classic rock, rhythm and blues, and old standards, with a healthy portion of original material, some of it quite memorable and catchy. Low key electric guitar accompaniment by Senor Nation, pleasing harmonies and the engaging front woman, Jewels, make this a way above average cabaret act. Check them out starting at 7PM tonight at La Garra as part of a local music festival with lots of other community favorites. I suspect Jewels has a lot more in her vocal tank and could really rock in the right venue.

Earlier we stopped by to chat with our friend, Iker, at Cafe Brown. He presented us with another of his excellent Latin music compilations on CD. We are both afficianados of Musica Cubana and I’m sure there will be some on this disc. It will provide the soundtrack for our trip to SJ de Cabo today. He also showed us the ingredients for a feast he has planned for us, Huitlacoche, an Aztec delicacy prepared from corn fungus, that will provide a flair to the pasta dish that is the centerpiece to the meal.

Oops, the clock on the wall says it’s time to get on the road to go to the airport to pick up our friends, Leslie, Korie and Susan. Later.
