Chapala Market

1 Dec
Since we missed last week’s market in Jocotepec, we went over to Chapala today to visit their market. To give you an idea of what the markets are like, I took a short video of it:

Today’s finds were great, as always! I got 2 kilos of tomatoes, 1 kilo of avocado, 17 bananas, 2 large cantalopes, and 2 kilos of strawberries. I got all of these for $69 pesos, just over $5 USD. SWEET! (For your information, 1 kilo equals about 2.2 pounds) I’m estimating this kind of purchase in Skagway would cost me at least $40. EAT THAT, Skagway!

The weather has been gorgeous lately (oh wait, it’s gorgeous EVERY DAY!). We haven’t seen rain since we arrived in Mexico over 1 month ago…WOW. So, we enjoyed a photo shoot in the back yard with the girls, and our mandarine orange tree.

    So cute! I wish I had two cute girls and a mandarine orange tree! Instead I have a cute husband and a jungle Swiss Family Robinson backyard. 🙂
