Our Trip To Costco

Yesterday it rained, so we decided to take a short road trip to the Costco
in GDL. It was easy to find and it was a good way to spend the day, not to
mention our money!!

On the road agian
The Mega store is in the same parking lot, so we went there too. Mega stores
are like the Walmart in the states.

Some of the views on the way to GDL.

Road work, we had to wait in line for a few minutes, but not bad.

We found this machine interesting, for those of you who don't know what
Cebolla means it is the Spanish word for onion, you turn the handle on
the right and onions come out on the left, how clever !

These gentlemen were celebrating Mexico's win over France !!

Look what we found !!!The best brownie mix in the whole world, not that I
need to be eating brownies but they are sooo good. Of course Billy making
brownies here won't be the same without the gran daughters to help, I want
to stir, can I do the eggs, she's eating the batter gran pa , are they cool
enough to eat yet ? etc. We miss that !

Now whoever thought up the idea of charging people to be able to spend
money in their store was a marketing genius. I think we signed up because
Billy found big cans of sea clams that he uses for his delicious clam chowder,
I am looking forward to having some of that, maybe we will have the
brownies for dessert? Being in Costco was just like being back in the states,
they tell me that you can't use your Mexico Costco in the states but you can use
your states Costco here in Mexico, I know, I know that doesn't make sense to me either but that's what they tell me. I told Billy that
Costco will be very busy during the holidays.
Well that's all for this post, hope you enjoyed our day at Costco,
yes it is a slow life we live here in Mexico !!!!


  1. Thanks for your post on Costco.

    Do they have all the regular stuff that you find at Costco? towels, bedding, ladies wear? books, meat dept. cereals, bean salad, laundry soap, vitamins....stuff like that?

  2. Yes they have all the things that you would find in any Costco in the states

  3. You can use your Mexican Costco card in the US we use when we go to Kansas City, MO.

  4. Thanks Bill that is good to know !
