On Wednesday evening Joe and I spend several hours with three gentlemen who are visiting Salinas for a few days. Joe Tana is here for 17 days while his friends from Florida are just visiting for a few days. I had them meet us at the Lui e Lei (AKA Lov’n’Oven) restaurant which is downstairs in our building(how lucky are we?).
Berty made the most scrumptious seafood and fish dishes using coconut milk and the freshest ingredients. Three of us tried the Corvina Encocado, while one had Camarones Encocado and Joe had the Fettuccine de Camarones but Berty went overboard and made his into Primavera with all these beautiful fresh veggies. It was a fun evening. The guys are going to visit Quito for some sightseeing and then Joe will be back to Salinas with two other friends. He is our Goodwill Ambassador for Salinas bringing all these folks here to visit.
Thank you again Joe for bringing some gifts from the states for us, I will let you know how the anise flavored Italian Cookies come out. And a very special thanks to Jeff for treating us all to dinner. Joe is back in town with two more friends from the states – Debbie and Frank – we hope to meet them in the next few days.
