It is market day in Ajijic, the once a week market with a loads of vendors. You can pretty much buy anything you need here, right down to the undies! Below, this couple are making chicken tacos to sell, they smelled really yummy!
We stopped at this "shop" (the back of a cube van) to buy some fresh roasted coffee beans... 50 pesos for half a kilogram. That is about $4.20. We also picked up a half kilogram of strawberries (10 pesos) and half kilogram of raspberries (15 pesos).
The glassware vendor, very beautiful glasses and dishes. Check out the glass red and green peppers!
Last night it rained hard for the first time since we have been here. It was just like home, listening to the rain on the roof, falling on the leaves of the trees and hitting the sidewalk. This morning, everything was fresh and clean, and although it was overcast all morning, the sun did come out in the early afternoon and dried everything up. This evening we had another rain shower. I picked a big bag of the tangerine oranges for our maid to give to the kids at school. She asked for about 30 oranges off our tree, and since we don't have a ladder, we stacked a little table on a chair and I climbed on that to get them down. Jerry was holding the chair and catching oranges as I picked them. Jerry said it would have been easier to just go and buy them at the store!
We are planning our trip to Mexico City on Friday.
