Rolling hills interspersed with agriculture was our scenery for today – except in Aguas Calientes. This good sized city made us feel as though we were in metro Atlanta. Home Depot, Costco, Sam’s Club, and Burger King were just a few of the US brand stores we saw.
Our Garmin GPS chip for Mexico showed us the way to Walmart. This Walmart shared parking with a few other stores and was PAID parking. Fortunately, an attendant motioned for us to ride around the entry gate arm. Paying to park at a Walmart is not part of my DNA. After buying a few items, and touring the store to see how it differed from those at home, we had worked up appetites.
Applebees, that bastion of small town USA restaurants was at the other end of the parking lot. Larry was in the mood for an American food fix. The prospect of guaranteed clean bathrooms drew me in. We shared a Reuben sandwich, fries, and a chocolate shake. They even served Heinz ketchup, our favorite. The fresh taste of my 1st iced tea since November was wonderful. I enjoyed several free refills. This USA treat came at a USA price, $21 + tip.
