Travel in the Time of Corona, Week 4

Four weeks after Governor Newsom announced the stay-at-home order for California, the corona virus is still taking a toll on Californians and the rest of the world. Physical distancing may have played a big role in capping the number of cases but we are not out of the woods yet. It looks like we’re home bound for a few more weeks. I don’t mind this at all because I know that it will help flatten the curve and set us free to live a “normal” life again.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during this period of self isolation, it is that I should never take anything for granted, especially traveling.

Desde Guadalajara

Fish CevicheAt Marisco Progreso in Tlaquepaque, Guadalajara, the food was as good as the images suggest here. My favorite was the fish ceviche followed closely by the empanadas de camaron (shrimp). These were the appetizers. I learned to put some ceviche on my tostada so that it was a dish by itself. I liked the crisp tostadas which come with saladitas (crackers) and are on every table. Empanadas de CamaronMy own entrée of salmon a brasas (salmon grilled over hot charcoal) was average. But our friend Sergio's plate filled with steak arrachera was a winnerfrom the looks of the remains.Steak Arrachera There were mariachi bands to entertain and where families were celebrating an important event, they were in great demand. After such a lunch, it was imperative to go for a walk. I totally overate.* * *
