Breakfast at Salvador's Restaurant in Ajijic
One thing that struck me today was how friendly everyone is here. One reason is probably that there are fewer of us. I remember sitting at an outside table in Portland and watching the hundreds of people walking by. Strangers who ignored people they weren't with, as if no one else existed except their own little worlds. It is different here. And maybe it has something to do with the fact that few of us expats are rushing around trying to make a living. We are retired and we have all the time in the world to sit and chat. Notice the dog sitting at the table. He was being fed bits of their breakfast. He carefully took it off the table. Would you see that in a restaurant in Portland? Doubtful. One more thing. My breakfast and coffee cost me a little over three dollars. In Portland, a similar breakfast would probably be ten dollars. I love Mexico. I love Ajijic.
