We were 4 people at the room, so taking a shower took long. We all used the time for different things, including TB's checking for me, haha. Francisco was taking a break and we were wondering if Enrico would be able to join us as he said yesterday. Suddenly, Francisco's phone rang.
Problem solved, we would go to a Mexican place called Aurorita. This one was one of Enrico and his wife's favorite and we had to trust them, since their son knows all the restaurants in the area, haha. Furthermore, Francisco used to go there and likes the food. No need to think it twice. We had a plan. But before going I'd take care of a personal business: getting a magnet for my collection, haha.
As agreed we arrived almost at 8pm. Francisco called them in advance, but couldn't book a table, we just had to show up but better doing it in advance since they had a mariachi show and they could get crowded.
We were waiting for Enrico and Lilia to order our food, but it didn't mean we couldn't order something to drink and since we were in a Mexican restaurant we got Margaritas, hehe. To make the experience at least a bit Puerto Rican, I got the Parcha one. I was so excited about having a local fruit, but then I realized it was the passion fruit with other name :P nevermind, it was tasty, haha.
We were zipping our drinks when I saw the lovely couple. "Hey! We are here!!!" The group was finally complete: Jess, Jason, Enrico, Lilia, Francisco & me. Enrico and Lilia asked for their drinks too, while we were checking the menu. It was warm outside, but inside it was cold.
Now I was warm and happy, hehe. After a while the waiter came back with most of our orders. Jess' chalupas, Jason's flautas, Francisco's combination, Lilia's combination and another dish. This last one was for Enrico but was wrong, so he had to go back to the kitchen and change it. Hey! my food was missing and it was a salad!!! I was missing my veggies!!!!
Ok, now he came with our food, yeah!!! The food was really good. I tried a bit of the Mexican dishes and tasted really Mexican. My salad was perfect! Just what I needed, something fresh and not fried, lol.
OMG! The food was really a lot! but we finished our dishes, lol! When the waiter came asking if we'd like to have dessert, we kindly refused. But Enrico and Lilia insisted we should try one. So they order 2 with lots of spoons, haha. We were full. The dessert was really sweet, but it didn't matter. It was sooooo tasty, we had it all, haha. Actually Francisco and me were the ones who ate until the end, haha.
Dinner was perfect, delicious food, good company and tons of fun.
Our original idea was to go for some Salsa dancing, but I was tired and had to catch an early flight next morning, 7:20 am!!! Also Jess, Jason & Francisco should leave early in order to go to Culebra Island. So, after driving around to look for a nice spot, we decided to go back to the hotel. So bad we couldn't enjoy the sunroof, but it was better, I was too tired. But before going to bed, I packed and left everything ready for the next morning. Jess told us not to worry since she set her alarm at 5:30am, which would give me time next morning. We weren't far away from the airport, so we'd be arriving there around 6am. Ok, let's go to bed. Puerto Rican adventure was getting over :(
