Back to Ajijic January 21

On the road from the coast back to Ajijic, we climb from sea level to just over 5000 feet. The vegetation changes almost each time we turned a corner in the mountains. This is another flowering tree that I don't know what it is, but they were quite beautiful even though they don't have their leaves yet. I think they flower early to take advantage of all the butterflies around.


We passed lots of fields of sugar cane (they call it jugo cane), agave (for making tequila), and corn in the highlands. Each crop had fields in different stages of growth, because from what we could see, Mexico really has a year round growing season as long as they can get water on the plants. We plan to make a day trip to Tequila and tour the plant where they make tequila and see how they harvest the agave plant.


As we are traveling along, we pass many small and some not so small villages. This picture was taken looking down on a small town, these people would be the one who tend the crops in this valley. It was very picturesque, not the idea most people get when they think of Mexico.

Hi Kathy & Jerry,
It looks like you are doing and seeing quite a few interesting things there. You could get yourselves a new job as Tour Guides!!! Nice pics.

Very nice. Yeah your right ,you get to see spots and villages, tourist I guess do not get to see. It reminds me of your Alaska sailing, you did anchor in little harbors where the cruise ships don't come. Lovely.
