Here's a li'l more from my voyage to Old México!
Mi madre resides in a beautiful village down in Baja California, if you are wondering just what I was doing there. I spent most mornings riding Coco down the beach, watchin' the pelicans play, and by day explored the local villages & desert hills. Nights I came home to my own li'l bungalow, and even had a darling Chihuahua named Tammy Faye who slept on the end of my bed. My mother is just a wonderful hostess (and cook!), and truth to be told, I was kinda sad to leave that beautiful land behind!
The magnificent Hotel Riviera del Pacifico, former casino and playground to Hollywood stars during the '30s and '40s. Myrna Loy, Gene Tierney, Xavier Cugat, Marion Davies, Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball are just a few of the luminaries to have graced its grand halls.
There is also a legend that the Margarita was invented here, but just about every historic Mexican resort/bar has a similar claim so I'd take that one with a grain of salt.
