Some sites around Ajijic January 22-23


Ajijic has a lot of dogs, they come in all shapes and sizes. I just couldn't resist getting a picture of this guy. We had passed him several times as we walked here and there. He watches as people and other dogs walk by, and you would never know he was up on the roof because he is very quiet. He is not the only dog up on the roof of a house (or shop), it seems to be quite common to let the dogs get up on the roof.

Chilies anyone?
After refilling our drinking water jug today, we headed over to the weekly market. All the vendors set up their stalls on a side street off the main street through Ajijic. The side street is closed for the day, and people come from all over to shop for fresh produce, clothes, crafts, etc. We got there just as some of the vendors had started packing up for the day, but next week I'll head over earlier in the morning. We bought some fresh prawns ($10 kilo) for dinner, but passed on the chilies because I am not sure how hot they are or what I would do with them. Our kitchen has the basics, but leaves a lot to be desired if I wanted to do any serious cooking.

Hey guys!
Looks like you are enjoying the "real" Mexico. We have stayed in Bucerias twice now as well as at Rancho Banderas, a little further past Bucerias. Make sure you relax!
Love Moi

Hi Kathy & Jerry,
At first those red 'things' looked like some kind of wiggly creatures! Have you tried any yet? Is the dog a Rottie?

Peter and I learned that there is a breed of dog indigenous to Mexico and that is, as you have discovered, The Mexican Roof Dog. They are found all over Mexico, come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, but the one thing they all have in common is their incessant barking which usually escalates at night. The Roof Dog in the photo must be a visiting dog from another country because you said he is quiet.
Have you heard the Mexican Roosters yet that crow at any time of day or night?
If you can find it, you must try a dish with mole negro (sauce) - it's delicious and our favourite. It's usually chicken or turkey served with this not too spicy and chocolatey sauce - mmmmmmm!
Have fun,
Roma & Peter
