It sounds strange, but it looks like we came to Las Vegas to cool off. The low last night was 54 and it barely made it to 80 today, about 20 degrees cooler than it was in Apache Junction last week. By Monday we’re supposed to get some rain with a high of 73. Very nice.
And it was cool enough last night to turn off the AC and open the windows, so it made for nice sleeping weather.
After coffee and a quiet morning, Jan and I headed out for the afternoon about 2pm. Our first stop was a nearby CVS for some things, and then it was on to our ultimate destination, Lindo Michoacan, our favorite Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas.
We discovered it in 2010 with Nick and Terry, came back with them in 2011, and it was our very first place to eat on this trip. It’s been voted Best Mexican Food in Las Vegas since 2004. And it’s a well-deserved award.
Located on a hill in Henderson, the wall-to-wall windows give you a great view of the Vegas skyline.
Jan tried their Shrimp Chili Rellenos, and I had my usual Pork Carnitas a la Coca-Cola. You can’t believe how good this is.
The Coke gives it a little bit of a caramel taste that combined with the pork chunks makes for a great taste.
Heading toward home, we made a stop at the Camping World down in Henderson where I was looking for some cabinet latches, and then on to an Albertson’s where Jan was looking for a special salad dressing. Neither of us were successful.
But it did wrap up a very nice day.
Thought for the Day:
In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. — Voltaire (1764)
