There's a fruit stand up the street. They chop everything fresh and pile it into a plastic cup: watermelon, pineapple, orange, jicama, coconut, cucumber. They use about 10 toothpicks to secure all the fruit so it's piled high over the rim.
Then you have your choice of toppings: salt, lemon juice, hot sauce, chili powder - a big tablespoon! We keep ours on the mild gringo side.
We walk a couple more blocks to our favorite panaderia (bakery) - they make the best bolillos (rolls). There are many choices and, if you wait around, more and more continue to come out of the back room. The proper way to make your selection is to take a large metal tray and tongs, pick out what you want to buy, take the tray to the register, the cashier rings up the total and uses the tongs to package your goodies.
Today we had glazed doughnuts which leads me to the following comment. Dick LOVES doughnuts. When Dick worked as a masonry contractor, he knew every doughnut shop in Sacramento and knew who had the best. Over the years, he's tried to curb his addiction but lapses have been known to happen. He's decided that Mexican doughnuts aren't nearly as fat-laden as American doughnuts, so he's back to enjoying this treat every once in a while.
Such angels, until it was time to get their bolillos from the top shelf. The cashier watched them carefully as they fooled around a bit and made them put every bolillo they dropped on the floor back on their tray for purchase instead of back on the shelf.
