Ajijic Plaza BandstandDavid and I twisted the kaleidoscope today, strolling down Calle Colon, Ajijic's main street, and browsing the Chapala market. Everywhere we went we ogled the brilliant colors and public art. Mexico had a few surprises in store for us, too.
Still, dirty feet intact, we hustled on to see the church bordering one side of the plaza and the municipal building on the other side. Mexico is wise in placing the police office and the church in a central location. If you can't get the local gendarmes to help you, perhaps you can achieve divine intervention.
The next stop was the Chapala market where several blocks had been taken over by entrepreneurs selling everything from daisies to doo rags. We walked every inch of the market, took a couple dozen pictures, bought a bunch of lillies and daisies for 25 pesos, and came home ready for another great Mexican tradition--the siesta.
These flowers decorate a popular clothing shop.
How about some sweet potatoes?
Or do you have a hankering for coconut?
Or maybe you'd like to skip the food and get a doo rag instead!
