A Month in Mexico - Wal-Mart

Although it rattled the expatriates who hate to see changes in their little village, Wal-Mart has come to Ajijic.  But it's not like any Wal-Mart I've ever seen in the States, so there's still enough "foreign-ness" to make shopping an interesting experience.

For only 40 pesos, this man will use his portable washer to give your car a bath while you shop.

Inside, there is a row of little shops selling ice cream--complete with sprinkles--cookies, and coffee.

Or, if you have a hankering for a variety of pastries, rolls, bread or pizza, you can grab a tray and tongs and select your own from the rows and rows of delectable offerings.
Expatriates may decry the addition of this mega-store in sleepy little Ajijic, but David and I noticed that their shopping carts were clogging the aisles of the store that has brought so many conveniences to Mexico.
