Pollo Campero Update

It took us exactly one hour from our front door to the entrance to Pollo Campero (chicken heaven!). As we were sitting at the stop light, we noticed that they had a Gainesville Sheriff patroling the parking lot. Pretty funny! I quickly pulled into the drive and into a parking spot. As I whipped my SUV into the spot, the Sheriff walked over to me and began talking...

"Excuse me, mam. Do you know what you did wrong?"
Obviously not..."Um no sir, but I feel sure that you are going to tell me."
"Come with me so that we can discuss your wrong doing."
What are you serious??? I can smell the chicken calling my name... "Yes sir."
"You see those yellow lines? You crossed over them without even batting an eye."
"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't see another entrance and no one was coming. I thought that I was able to enter."
"Ma'm it is a law everywhere that you can't cross over double yellow lines. That is ticket worthy."
"I'm sorry sir. Thank you for pointing that out and telling me my wrong doing. I won't do it again."
"I'm going to let you go, but don't do it next time."
WHEWWWW!!!! Okay, can I go now???? There's now a line of 30 people!!!!

What would life be without reliving Guatemala without a brush with the law??????

Okay, so the food was AWESOME! I had the Rosa de Jamaica, white rice with black beans, chicken, and tortillas. We also ordered the fried sweet plantains...excellent choice! I am already craving it again! It tasted just like the Campero in Guatemala. The only difference was that the menu and the waiters spoke English and I was certain what I was ordering! The lines were steady and the manager said the day before the drive thru was backed up 7 miles! The Gainesville Police had to ask them to shut down the drive thru for an hour to clear up traffic!!

So, who's ready for another road trip??? YUMMY!!!
