Almost Ready to Say Good-bye: Slice of Life Day #15

Tuiva is up first but he’s already packed so I have just minutes to get this Slice done and published before the day takes me over and my leaving process begins.  If I just start dumping, we will have time for a beach walk, breakfast and a great good-bye to the staff faves.

I would come back here in a flash and I will share just one story to make my case.

Last night was Mexican Night.  Lots of clubs have these special events.  Club Med used to have them every day and the routine was set up all afternoon and  break up right after.  An amazing young staff of MGs, or whatever they were called.

We watched a lot of the set up during the day and it was impressive, but I had my doubts about how Tuvia would fare given his very sensitive stomach.  We even created a backup plan that if there wasn’t anything for him to eat we would leave for the Italian restaurant that we both love.

Okay, we are escorted into the event, which looks amazing. We have seats at a small table and I start moving around the buffet offerings and I don’t see much that looks familiar even though our waiter, eager to please confirms that they do have the basics, but I don’t see anything and Tuvia’s explorations offer up some strange foods.  Both of us know this could be a disaster for him so we start leaving.

We are stopped by the manager who offers us anything we would like, quesadillas? Sure but we are already out and off to Toscana.

We arrive and are welcomed by the familiar hostess who is happy to see warm bodies on Mexican night.  We have a table by the window and our waiter knows us from past times as well.  He arrived with Toscana’s manager who offers us option A: the menu or option B: anything we would like to eat, he will make us, even quesadillas.  He got the call and was on it.  Tuvia had special pasta and I didn’t care.  It was just nice to get the VIP treatment.

Planning to return in 2015 and that’s why 🙂

  1. Wishing you a safe journey and happy return home. Great to have another trip to look forward to for next year, it’s such an amazing place. I sure would love to go!

  2. Always happy to hear stories like this, Bonnie, but especially glad too that you found such a special restaurant. When we’re at the beach this summer, I’m sure we’ll return to our favorite places more than once, maybe explore just a bit. But what I love about Mexico, the color-just really wonderful, isn’t it?

  3. The love you give – is the love you get in return they say. It sure seems to be true. I will miss the peek at sun and warmth…hope you have lots of pictures to still share!~
