Looks like the rainy season has started early this year. Not even June yet and it is raining. Yesterday, it was gloomy most of the day. This morning is starting out the same. I know we need the rain but I am not a huge fan of this season.
There are many myths that float around Ajijic. One of them is that it never rains in the daytime during the rainy season. Only at night. This is just not true. It DOES rain during the day. I remember when there were ten days of overcast weather like it was yesterday and it felt like winter. So I am glad I may be taking a little vacation to the States next week.
Another myth: The water is dirty at the San Juan Cosala Spa on Mondays so don't go that day. Mondays are great at the spa because of this myth. Hardly anyone is there. I don't see that the water is any dirtier than on Tuesdays or Wednesdays or any other day. They often clean the round pool on Mondays but there are plenty of other pools to use.
Back to my, hopefully, upcoming trip to the States. I am supposed to go to Chapala to pick up my permanent residency card on Friday. If that actually happens, I will take a short trip up to the States to visit a friend. I was told that it would take me two months to get that card. Now it has been six months. So I am a little worried that it may not be there. Another myth: It only takes two months to get your permanent residency card.
My little downstairs casita is still for rent. It is only large enough for one person and no pets. This yard belongs to Chico..... I lived there for maybe eight years. Amazing that I lasted that long..... But the rent is cheap and I love the yard. There is even a fireplace. I bought lots of wood that has been drying for a couple of years now. Rent is only 3000 pesos a month, and that includes the electric. If you open your front door, you can often get wi fi. E mail me if you are interested. I will pass it on to the landlord.
