Another trip Mezcala Island on Lake Chapala

Another trip Mezcala Island on Lake Chapala

I´ve blogged about Mezcala before, so I´m not going to get into much detail. However, we went again, this time with some new friends. All the kids were excited for the upcoming boat ride, while hanging out on the newly-built, beautiful malecon! Our friends, Rachel and Greg, are responsible for the extra children above. It takes good parents to make good kids (sadly, which is why our kids...

Driscoll´s Raspberries in Mexico

Driscoll´s Raspberries in Mexico

You know those lovely packages of Driscoll´s raspberries that cost a pretty penny? Yeah, those ones. They can fit in the palm of your hand, but cost about $3-$5 dollars to purchase, even in Mexico. Well, these babies are grown right here, in the most Western town on Lake Chapala, Jocotepec.  The town is dotted with raspberry fields covered in white canopies. We can buy a package of those raspberries at...

Blue Malecon in Chapala, Mexico

Walking the Malecon in Jocotepec, Mexico

Walking the Malecon in Jocotepec, Mexico

If you’ve ready many of my other posts, you’ve learned that Jared and I spend a good deal of time on Malecons in the area.

It usually has a paved walking trail as well as additional attractions such as playgrounds, grills, park benches, etc. And since we live on a huge lake (50 miles long by...

Old Trees are cool…

Old Trees are cool…

But seriously…don’t you think so? I love the gigantic trees that are in the center of all of the roundabouts in the La Floresta area of Ajijic. A friend once gave me directions to her house, and told me to turn left at the 2nd tree. I thought, “what? Not the second street…but the 2nd tree?”  I followed her instructions and then realized that the trees marks the streets. They are...
