While that was uploading, they brought three more items to the table... Shrimp aguachile.

Back to Taco Chelles... I told the waitress that these better be some darn good tacos, after what we went through to get there... She assured me that they were, so I ordered their special taco of the week, called the Wong Carlos. It featured fried chicken and some other things that I can't recall. I also had the Diablo pork and a fish taco. They're all dressed differently, with the freshest of ingredients...

Tamales.

Elote... Mexican street corn. Maybe the dish of the night, and that's saying something. Everything here has been off the chain, as Guy Fieri would say...IMG_20191204_174559.thumb.jpg.6388cfbfbc0510c0c413b33f73a10a98.jpg

For whatever reason, the tamales showed up twice. I'm not going to try and edit it. Sometimes the Cruise Critic site just decides to do crazy stuff...

Couple more from Taco Chelles... Here are some of the names of their past tacos of the week...

The tacos did turn out to be pretty legendary. At least I almost didn't get run over about a hundred times for some substandard food. Pretty soon, we went and stood out by the road and waited for the next dollar bus to drive by. It only took a few minutes, but all the dollar buses make a stop in Tutu, where everyone must get out.

When we got to Tutu, the next bus back to Havensight showed up almost immediately. We were now on the final leg of a cross island adventure. The three bus rides costed less than a taxi would have been just to Sapphire Beach, and that includes me tipping the driver all three times...

One more spicy margarita before they bring a wheelchair over here to take me back to my cabin... Los Lobos turned out to be better than I remembered on the Bliss...

I'm back on board now after my adventure in St Thomas... And, it was quite an adventure... When I arrived back to my cabin, Pam and Jovo had sent some gifts...

That's a pretty big ginger bread village, including a train set... All edible, except the train... The chef said it took eight days to make, and three hours to assemble.IMG_20191204_191257.thumb.jpg.1b70664484493af98fb9d7e003a63ae8.jpg

There was a lady selling bracelets and other stuff sitting under a tree, so I figured that she must be a local... I asked if it would be cool to leave our bags on one of the chairs while we went in the water. She said it wouldn't be a problem until about an hour, when the next tour arrived. At least my bag was off the sand and in the shade. It was just a plastic Target bag, so it looked like nothing anyone would want to steal. Of course, nobody knew that my phone and a lot of cash was in there, along with a butt load of handi wipes...

 

I went in for a swim, and the water felt cool at first, but after a minute I was plenty comfortable...

 

I stayed out there for quite a while, and just thought about wanting to stay there forever. Not really in St Thomas, but anywhere else than where my life is now. I don't particularly like my job, and I'm never going to get anywhere working there. I have an apartment that I like, in a good part of town, but I can barely afford it, and as a renter, it'll never be mine. I figured that I have spent about a quarter of a million dollars on rent in my life, and I currently have zero equity in anything, other than a 2013 Honda and a motorcycle...

 

Wow, I really went off on a tangent there, didn't I?... I warned you that it would probably happen...IMG_20191204_122710.thumb.jpg.e75827dfb695042bad57fe60ab58f6b4.jpg

Beautiful pictures, Sid.

Trust me, we all have thoughts of giving it all up to move to somewhere spectacular.

Glad you are having a great time!😊
