Blue Malecon in Chapala, Mexico

Blue Malecon in Chapala, Mexico

Our children refer to a particular malecon as the “Blue Walkway”, because oddly enough they painted the entire walkway blue. It is located between Ajijic and Chapala (almost to Chapala, in fact), and runs right along a road. If you pass by there on a Sunday, you will see that the park is PACKED with Guadalajarans and families enjoying the grass and playgrounds. Every other day of the week, it feels nearly...

Mexican Weather Women

Jared and I have purchased cable for the first time in ages. I admit we almost never watch it, but we keep it because Jared is thoroughly enjoying catching American sports on some of the English networks.  In theory, I also find it kind of fun to turn on a movie in English with Spanish subtitltes (“Oh! That’s how they say that!). But that almost never happens…we’re just not tv...

Regata de Globos in Ajijic

Regata de Globos in Ajijic

Quirky Mexican Food…

But the graphics on the Mexican signs are a bit different. For example, below you see a picture...

San Carlos, Mexico

San Carlos, Mexico

San Carlos is a great little beach retreat that is popular among Arizonan’s who want to make a quick run to a clean, beautiful Mexican beach! We hit up this beach briefly in 2008, on the second day of our very first visit to Mexico! Jared had found a small car path last time, which led us directly to some pristine beaches. What he failed to remember is that we were visiting during the rainy season this...

A breakdown in Mexican Customs…literally…

A breakdown in Mexican Customs…literally…

We took a summer vacation to the states for one month, to visit family in July!  Besides our family of five, we also took two friends from church with us…Mexican brothers whose father was American (but passed away 10 years ago), but mother is Mexican. One brother had never been to the states, and the other had only once been to the states with his dad on a roadtrip when he was 9 years old. So, it was...
