Bashing and Burgers

13 June 2012 | Going through one to get another
Capt Rich
On our recent failed attempt to cross the Sea of Cortez, both Lori and Cortez were passed out from the exhaustion of bashing into the wind and sea. Cortez always heads for Lori's lap while up in the cockpit and in this case he stretched out on her while she was out cold.

All that bashing makes you hungry and I'm sure I lost a few pounds on the way to La Paz from Barra, but it sure didn't take the crew of THIRD DAY long to get back into the La Paz Food Scene! A famous Gina Burger is lovingly prepared by starting out by toasting a type of sweet bread sponge dough burger bun. When the burger patty and cheese are ready, that's when the real love begins. We typically order "con toto" or with everything which includes: lettuce, grilled onions, tomato, avocado, mustard, ketchup, and the kicker....Media Crema or cream. Yes that's right, heavy cream is squirted atop the veggies from a squeeze bottle in an almost obscene display of caloric abandonment and Mexican decadence.


It's fair to say that in my life of travel, around the US for work and now Mexico, I've had my share of burgers. I know there are many styles of burgers and it's hard to sometimes compare one to another, but I can honestly say that I think a Gina Burger here in La Paz could be the best burger I've had. It could be the street card atmosphere of sitting on plastic patio chairs set up in the drive way of a house, it could be the fact that they cost $28 pesos ($2US), or perhaps it could be the generous application of cream as the finishing touch on the burger. But whatever it is, I love it and so do Amy and Jason.


Now that I think about it, everyone I have ever taken to Gina Burgers is impressed and gets addicted to them. I have Patrick on Just a Minute to blame for my addiction as he first took me to this sacred spot of Burger Paradise and I'm happy to spread the addiction throughout the cruising fleet here in La Paz.
