Wednesday Market in Ajijic Just Before Christmas

Taking a break from all the activity at the market
The two photos just above are the entrance to the market. It was too crowded for me to even attempt to walk in there but a few hours later it thinned out and I walked up through it for the first time since my accident. It was nice to see people I hadn't seen for almost three months but my ankle hurt after that walk. The day I came to the house sitting job, the shortest day of the year, the 21st, was the day that an electricity pole fell down and we had no electricity for a day and a night and half the next day. I took photos of the repair men and the truck. No electricity means no running water. I am glad there were a lot of candles here. You never know when the electricity will go out here. I bought coffee beans from the young man in a purple t shirt. Good coffee but I didn't have it no coffee the next day. He has an old fashioned meat grinder that he uses to grind his coffee. No electricity. No problem. 


  1. Have a Merry Christmas!

    I retire in one week, plan on moving Lakeside the end of April. Can't wait.

  2. Looks like another warm day in Mexico!
    Glad you are getting around, but take care. :-)
    At our house we don't have water when the power is out, so I know that is rough. But no coffee makes it much worse!
    Hope you have a happy Christmas.

  4. Hi Karen, Thank you for writing and for your good wishes. I think I overdid it the other day. Like I said already, two steps forward and one step back. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Patricia

  5. Hi Marilyn, Thank you for your holiday wishes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too. I am going out to eat with a friend. Otherwise, I will be alone, probably watching television. I don't own one and it is interesting to flip through the channels and see what is of interest to people these days. Thanks for writing. Patricia

  6. Hi Joan, How wonderful... Please contact me when you get here. I would like to meet you. I hope I will be walking by then. Thanks for writing. Patricia
