Acquainting Alexis with Jocotepec

LOCATION: Housesitting in Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico

WEATHER: Sunny. High 91

Alexis recovered from her jetlag, and was ready to go this morning. We took Frida for a nice walk to the malecon (lake front board walk).

Frida was in heaven with not just one person doting on her. This horse was strolling along the road as we headed to the lake.

Today is a holiday (Labor Day), so the usual quiet Wednesday morning was busier than usual.

Alexis was intrigued by the artwork. She took this great action photo…

This is a really weird statue along the malecon…

We had a nice long walk all around the lake area.

Back home, we chatted with the gardener and pool guys who were working, even on this holiday.

Then, we walked to Frida’s Restaurant for a nice lunch. We shared a huge chef’s salad.

After a hot afternoon spent on the computers and resting, we walked uptown to the Jocotepec Plaza. We did a little fruit and veg shopping. A marching band noisily marched by the shop.

DINNER: Refreshing gazpacho on the patio. I blended fresh tomatoes, banana peppers (for a zing), bell peppers, lots of garlic, onion, cucumuber, splashes of olive oil, and red wine. After it cooled in the refrig, it made a great dinner. We topped it with extra diced veg and some homemade croutons.

BOOK: I finished up another one. I’m not sure how I found this one, but it was good. “Moon of the Crusted Snow” by Waubegeshig Rice. It is a story about some First Nation people trying to survive when they are cut from southern civilization. I would give it a 9 out of 10 stars
