Market Day in Ajijic

Wednesday December 16, 2009
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.
Adios!

Nice to see all the activity there Kathy. Are the tangerines small like mandarins or are they larger? I'm looking forward to all the fresh fruit (avocados, tangerines, papayas,lemons, etc.) Any mangos? Of course I'm anxious to just 'be there'. Nice photos Kathy. Keep posting.
Love,
Mom

Sounds like great fun! I can almost taste those tacos. Did you buy a small vase from the glass vendor for your Bird of Paradise bloom? Tell us how the coffee tastes. Did you ask the vendor where in Mexico it came from? Oaxaca is a big producer of high altitude, shade grown coffee - it is sooo good. I'm assuming you have travel medical insurance; re: climbing on the chair on the table to pick fruit.....?

PS. It snowed some more here.

The tangerines are bigger than mandarins. We are going to try to pick some avocados today, since the birds are really going after them. We don't have any mangoes in our yard. Roma, I was actually standing on the table which was on the chair, and yes we have travel insurance. Next time we get some coffee we will ask where it is grown.
