Independence Day Parade

Independence Day children's games

Some photos of the children's and adult's games held in the Ajijic Plaza. It was a beautiful evening. Fun for everyone.

This was the greased pole that the children tried to climb to get the gifts on top.

Part of my walk on Zaragoza street in West Ajijic

Lunch with my friends Pablo and David

Pablo and David invited me to have lunch with them in an outdoor restaurant in the west Ajijic neighborhood. It was good food, a fun time and a beautiful afternoon. 

Pablo is on the left. David is on the right.

David on the left. The cook is on the right.

I don't know what these dishes are called because they were just brought to me. I didn't order anything. The one above was hand made base like a tortilla with grilled peppers on top.

Above was a meat stew with vegetables. 

Above were potatoes and mashed up beans and a hand made tortilla with melted cheese. I don't know the cost of the meal because Pablo paid for it.

Morning Thoughts

The Independence Day celebrations are still happening. This coming weekend there will be events in the Ajijic plaza and the parade. I haven't been able to get to all of them but I have enjoyed the ones that I did attend. It is a welcome change from the months here of little action and lots of rain. We are still getting rain but it is slowing down.  

I have written two new articles on and will be writing two or three more next week about these events. 

Since I still don't have a computer, only an i pad, writing is slow. I pads are great for most things but not for posting photos and writing long articles. I only like the Macs because I have used them for so many years and they are very expensive. So I keep putting off the big purchase. 

There is a lot of excitement in town because of the holiday. I expect this coming weekend I won't be sleeping because of local parties that go on all night. 

I also need a better camera. Most of my photos are blurry. But again, I don't want to spend a big chunk of money. I like my little camera because I can keep it in my purse. 

Below is a photo of one of the dancers at the rebozo fashion show. For such a small child, she had a large presence. 

Lots of singing and dancing going on these days.....
