Yet another appointment

Thursday I had an appointment to get my hair colored and cut.  I was unhappy with my hairdresser of many years here in Mexico and it was time for a change.  This is Gaby of Gaby’s Hair Salon in the Golden Zone.  She did the colour and highlights.

Her mother Rosie did my cut. It is a family run business and they are always busy.

I love my hair, most especially the price. It was 1200 peso less than what I have been paying. What is amazing is that they nailed my hair perfectly on a first visit.

Colin had come with me and just hung around, walked about and checked the area out as well as stopping to check on me every 40 minutes or so. We stopped here for lunch.  We were not expecting banda music on the beach.  We get enough of that on the Isla.

Tony’s is in the same complex as Gaby’s and had a shrimp burger on the menu.

So of course we tried it. It was just okay but we would not order it again. I was hoping that with the name Tony’s it just might be a great burger.  The plan was to eat and then do some shopping, as in me getting Christmas gifts for Colin but there was nothing close by and I am still not walking too much.  Looks like Santa might have to be sure to drop by as I haven’t done a good job this year.

We have started to use Uber as the pulmonias and taxis are very expensive to the Golden Zone where all of my appointments have been this past week.  Much better to pay 50% of the fare.  Yes I could take a bus for only 11 pesos but that would take longer and I don’t have the stamina. Besides Uber to the last medical appointment was only 30 pesos more, about 1.58USD.  Plus it is nice to have an air conditioned clean car.  I wanted to show you the red poinsettias that are being placed by the hundreds all along the malecon.  Quite pretty.

    I use to get my hair cut by Gaby when we wintered in Mazatlan and always got my nails and pedicure done there too! Love the ladies there! And Tony’s on the Beach makes GREAT margaritas! Sorry to hear the pulmonios have gotten so expensive as I loved using them!

    Hope the treatments work for you!

      Hey you, I did not know that you wintered here. Good to know about Gaby’s and also Tony’s. We love the pulmonias as well but right now with multiple trips to the GZ each week it is easier this way.
