Neighbors from Santa Maria, Ken and Ruth and Ruth's sister, Kathy, were visiting La Paz this week from their vacation condo in Cabo. We had a fun time introducing them to fish tacos in a typical open air lunch spot in downtown La Paz.
Christmas is approaching, so the grocery stores are stocked with fresh veggies and turkeys. Today we purchased a "natural turkey" 12 pounds for $15.16. Food costs here are substantially lower than in California. For instance, limes cost 2 cents each, 6 tomatoes for 36 cents, 12 oranges for $1.30, 5 bananas for 65 cents, cantaloupe sold by the pound costs $1 per pound.
