Day trip to Guadalajara January 26

The last couple days, we have just been hanging around Ajijic while Jerry gets over his cold, he is feeling a little better, but still not 100%. He can't understand why I don't get his colds, and I just tell him it's because I have a positive attitude and don't think I will get a cold! I took some time to get my hair cut and yesterday had a massage which was very relaxing. I have also been exploring around all the little shops in Ajijic, very cute.
Today we were going to go to Tequila, but changed our minds when we got close to Guadalarja. We decided to head downtown Guadalarja, and see whats to see!

Birds for sale at the market.

Eating lunch in the plaza.

Guadalarja has about 6 million people, so it is very busy, but we managed to get downtown and find a parking spot without crashing into anyone else. Amazing, really! The drivers are really crazy here, but if you understand how they drive then it makes it easier to anticipate what their next move will be.
Once out of our vehicle, we headed over to the Cabanas Cultural Institute and the Plaza Tapatia. Close by they have a HUGE market where everything is for sale! It was really crazy with vendors and people. We didn't stay long there, but stopped to enjoy a very good lunch and do some people watching on the plaza.
Our trip home was ten times worse than the trip into Guadalarja because the traffic was that much heavier. We have experienced the Mexican squeeze! By the time we got home we just wanted to put our feet up and have a cold one!
Tomorrow we are heading a little west of Ajijic and going to the small town of Jocotepec.
Adios!

Sounds like 'not too much fun' in that traffic. Selling birds must be a big business there. When Mark, Judy and I were in Mexico there was a man walking along the beach carrying many little cages with 'birds for sale'. I felt sorry for the birds as it was so hot and he was swinging them back and forth. Nice pic of you two.

Your side trips sound wonderful! Your pictures and comments show a different Mexico than I had imagined. Thanks for sharing.

I used to have friends who born and raised in Mexico. They told me the driving was crazy. Rosemaire told me she never had driving lessons and when she asked her husband to teach her he said: Rosemarie just start the car, close you eyes and drive. She went on the road without ever having a lesson. They had a good marriage. They used to live in ladysmith, and moved 6 years ago to Alberta to live next door to their daughter. Walter passed away a couple of years ago, Rosemarie is still driving every where. She turned out to be a better driver then Walter ever was. Guess Mexico did teach her real well to be on the alert.
