Trip to town yesterday.

A quick post this morning as we'll soon be on the road heading about 200 miles south to El Chaco RV park near Aticama.
Yesterday we spent part of the day using up the few remaining megabits of our data so we could go to the Mall and renew it. 
First we went to breakfast at our favorite restaurant across the street. They have real problems with the birds. Because the restaurant is open the birds come in and steal fool. Nothing except the salt and pepper can be left on the tables. But the darn birds are smart. This table has all the dishes of condiments on it. Sugar, cream, jelly etc. The tablecloth is put over everything. Here is a bird quietly and carefully picking the table cloth off of the food. He finally got it far enough up he could grab a jelly packet and take off with it. 
 It was cool enough here in the morning that the big heaters were out. 
 Heading downtown we passed a police car. Here in Mazatlan all the police vehicles cruise the streets with their light continually going. During the day it isn't bad but at night they are blinding if you get behind one. If they want you to stop they Whoop their siren. 
 We went to the yardage store again to get more polar fleece. Bill wants me to make him a snuggy when we get home. These are a couple of pictures of just a few of the different rolls of oil cloth. Some are really pretty. 

 Then we went into the mall to renew the TelCel data. Passed this "good' deal on a car. Only 86 pesos a day! 2580 a month - 130 US dollars. Didn't say how many months. We were told interest rate is near 14%.
 Finished the reloading of data and as we were leaving I noticed that the mall has an ice rink. Never saw it before. 
 They also have a brand new Starbucks Coffee right next to the Radio Shack. 
On to the grocery store to pick up a few things that are easier to find in Mazatlan than in Aticama or San Blas. Then home for the rest of the day. 
Spent some time making Arvi ready to hit the road. Putting things into moving mode instead of living mode. 
We'll leave here about nine, after all the go to work traffic is over. Probably get there about 1 or 2. So tomorrows post should have something interesting to say.
