Indio, California: Dave and I schlepped
Kris and Steve to several local hot-spots today to give them a general over-view
of local life. First, exercise.
2. Tacos Gonzales:
Enough said. Best tacos in My World. $1.79. Breakfast/lunch
Cardenas Mexican Grocer - a southern California chain specializing in
foods popular with Mexican-Americans and anyone wishing to purchase 5
avocados for one dollar. We toured through the produce department, gasping

5. Palm Springs. We walked the
streets of old Palm Springs for several hours. People watching. Building

6. Finally, we went to
Shanghai Red's for an early dinner. Fish tacos - and
oysters for the boys.
7. Back to our campsite for the highlight of the day (ha, ha, just kidding...
well, sort of) - the replay of the
track meet from
Long live The One True Sport!
Everyone pooped-out pretty early this evening, so until my next update, I remain, your "you
can't get enough tacos" correspondent.
