PSF-Tradition

The summer of 1993 was our 1st trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Mommy had just graduated from high school!! On that trip, we found a wonderful shrimp restaurant. It was called THE SHRIMP HOUSE. They sold boiled shrimp by the kilo. We would get a kilo of cold & a kilo of hot. On that trip, a tradition was born. Every year that we went to Cabo San Lucas, this was the 1st stop we made. We became friends with the waiters & they remembered us when we returned year after year....I think this is amazing considering how many people visit each year. Our favorite waiter was Maro. In 2007, we decided to visit Cabo San Lucas again.....and sadly, we found out that the Shrimp House had closed. The owner decided to retire!! WE WERE LOST!!
But guess what? We returned this year & were walking down a street on our 1st day there. Billy said "Hold on a minute. I recognize that guy." Can you guess who it was?? MARO!! He had opened his own restaurant. AND IT IS EXACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL SHRIMP HOUSE!! We were so happy to find him & he was happy to see us!!

Maro is so proud of having his own business. I love it that he remembers us year after year. He always takes time to talk and practice his English. Kind and gracious people exist all over the world. Yeah for Maro
