Parking in Mexico

 

Found this fellow parked on the street in town the other day. When I approached he pulled back abruptly. His owner, a little old lady, told me that he only liked her, no one else. I’m guessing that these two have been together for years.

The owner changed from a baseball cap to the hat you see on the saddle, before mounting and riding away with her bags of groceries hanging from the saddle horn.

Dia de la Revolucion — Mexico Independence Day

Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori.

Our town celebrates with a grand parade comprised mostly of the children — school groups, dance groups, sports groups — with a few cowboys and their horses thrown in. After all this isn’t just a beach town. It’s also ranch country.

Here are some little revolutionaries.

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.
