The eager cook

One of the hotel cooks came up to me and said, "Please tell me what you want. I will make you food. Do you like Spanish food?"

I said, "I do like Spanish food."

He went on, "Is there anything I can make for you?"

I replied, "Nothing right now, thank you."

Some people are of the opinion that the food is better here in Cancun, but I disagree wholeheartedly. I liked Israel and Lisette's preparation at Lake Atitlan infinitely more.
