Began with breakfast at ElZafiro. I loved the French toast but hubby thought the pancakes were too thick, dense.

Back to our unit and he says “GIve me the credit card back.” Me:I don’t have CC, you did not give it to me. Back to Z to track the card. They had it. First possible catastrophe avoided.

Later drove to Porto Cupecoy Carrefour. Big boat looks like aluminum docked so we took photos. Back to car because I had left bags for groceries. Hubby started car. Or should say TRIED TO. Car wouldn’t start. No one at guard shack so walked back to first restaurant where we had just had conversation with. Borrowed their cell phone to call Leslie. His wife said he would be there in 15. Back to guard shack to wait in shade. Guard arrives, explained our plight she takes cables and jump starts us. Leslie arrives swaps our cars.

Lounged rest of day. Met new manager Bernadette, a lovely lady. Later got ready for dinner at Altro and hopes of stopping at Mario’s to make rsvp for another night.

Fixed price memo had no fish that I could eat I have allergies to Tuna, Mahi. The meat dish was kidneys....no thanks! Fortunately, I thought, they had two special not on fixed menu: Fois Gras or Fillet du boeuf so we both ordered boeuf rare. Mine was delicious. Hubby said his wasn’t but he kept eating. Near to last few bites he adds that the consistency is like mashed potatoes. wish he had said that sooner. So I tasted it. Very mushy and tasted like liver. Maybe he got the fois gras? So we argue that in future if he does not like something do not keep eating it complain right away. $105 wasted.

Home bed silence!

Doesn't sound like a good day, but at least you found the credit card! Hopefully today will be a better day.

Sorry to hear about your bad day, but others can only get better. Glad you were able to meet Bernadette. She is a real jewel!

Have you experienced what others have about the addition of service charge plus "tax" at Altro? There have been some pretty bad reviews on here about that aspect.

Linda--would be interested to hear about that also. I knew there was something bad I had heard about that restaurant, but couldn't remember what it was. CRS again..

So glad you got your CC back! Lesley's great service is why we keep going back to him! Anyone can be friendly while renting you a car but that isn't service! Hope the rest of your trip goes well!
