A User’s Guide to the Supervision of Morning


Lake Chapala at sunrise. It never looks the same twice. Though it is late in the season and should be chill, we do not seem to be having winter this year. The golondrinas, swallows, seem confused and have not migrated as early as they usually do. This year they sat in their thousands, three inches apart, on overhead cables and seemed to wonder what to do. Finally they left. Vifoto.

Before light we awake. The dogs, knowing that they are going for a walk, leap and twirl and bounce and make nuisances of themselves. Violeta brews coffee to rekindle the guttering flame of life. 

(That’s poetic. Like Milton.) We attach their leashes. They jump into the back of the CRV with enthusiasm. Vi bluetoothes her phone to the car’s sound system, surprisingly good, and we head out to Beethoven or Louisiana blues.

Fred of Fred On Everything and his lovely wife in Ajijic. Expatriate's galore here but I feel just fine walking the streets of Guadalajara and making do with the little Spanish I know and dealing with many who have little or no English.  There are many Spanish who have not married outside their class/race that it is difficult to tell they are not Caucasians and I think most of the time they think that I am from here also. (Though Spanish are considered Caucasian) Very friendly and they are extremely polite in receiving your money and counting carefully when they hand your change back. The weather is more pleasant down here, though only 1 1/2 hours away.  As Fred says it gets almost cold enough that you want heat and almost hot enough to want A/C of which he has none. It's not cheap though, where new car dealers abound and is about 2 1/2 times more expensive than Vietnam. 


Numerous links/pictures of the time I spent there in the spring.
