Traffic in Mexico

Not at all an unusual sight in our area. Often we see the riders in town too and using their cell phones while the horse makes its way seemingly unguided.

Storm watch and the useless Internet

The Mall in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta)

Stores? Of course. Our favorite is the Liverpool department store. Click here

Decorations? Of course:

 

And fun for the kids!

There is also a “jumping place” ie trampoline area that the munchkin particularly loves. For more about the mall click here

The Munchkin’s school yard (in Mexico)

The Munchkin is attending Escuela del Mundo in San Pancho – a small town on the Mexican coast. Here’s a glimpse of her school yard.

“Look, Grandma, it’s made of all natural stuff.

Add a bit of recycling.

 

Dogs, cats, chickens, and a pig. Don’t worry, they only serve vegetarian meals.

The next door neighbour.

Mexico – more than a beach

A short drive inland from the beach brings you to lush mountainous terrain with rolling valleys.

 

No pictures of the valleys as we missed the “view point.”

But, here are a couple of pictures of Compostela, the capital of the municipality. It’s the churches that always grab our attention.

The Munchkin goes to school in Mexico

We’re in small town Mexico for a month over Christmas holidays and the Munchkin has a chance to go to school for a couple of hours one morning with her best friend. This is one of the schools she has gone to with her mother to talk about pet care and to explain about the free spaying and neutering clinics offered twice a year.

Today, she’ll just be another student in her friend’s classroom.

The school isn’t fancy, but the rooms do have air conditioning. The playground, as you can see, is cement. At recess the kids improvise a soccer game using a small plastic cube for a ball.

The cafeteria, manned by a couple of local women, offers (mostly) healthy food at a nominal price.
