One pasttime that I've found to be very entertaining is to just jump on a bus and see where it takes you. Doing this I managed to find a whole 'nother city in which all sorts of fun was to be had. In addition to fountained squares and imposing obilisks, I found this nice corner cafe. I took the corner seat where I had a good view of the ship, which was in the process of unloading. Feeling adventurous I tried a ham and cheese ommelette. I'm surprised (or not, I'm not sure which) to report that it tastes exactly like a ham and cheese ommelette anywhere else.

See those guys in the background? "Your name on a grain of rice"? Those guys are everywhere. Now, I don't know if there's a huge demand for this service in Veracruz, but I probably saw a hundred -- literally -- different vendors selling the exact same thing. And not one of them did I see actually make a sell. They sell your name on a grain of rice, a key, or a pen. Boy, when I think Veracruz, my name on a key is the first souvegniere I think about buying.
