Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico

Hot, freshly made tortillas, a mainstay of every meal in Mexico, are nestled in a hand woven basket with hand woven cloth.


Juice bars, or liquado stands, are popular family owned businesses. You custom design your liquado anyway you want it. Check out those quail eggs in the front jar!


The Central Plaza in any Mexican town is where it's happening, especially on Sundays. Musicians, food vendors and those selling balloons or roasted beans and corn are a common site. This plaza in Chapala is active throughout the day.


Lush vegetation grows easily in the temperate climate. Hiking to the white cross on top of the hill (center) is a favorite outdoor activity, and gives a panoramic view of the city of Chapala.


A picturesque corner in Chapala. The main church with its rebuilt second steeple, right next to the old Braniff home, which is now a restaurant. All this is located right at Lake Chapala's edge.


One of the many ExPats and a living legend in Chapala, Grady is a nice guy to boot! Does he have stories to tell! If you think his hat is a fashion statement, you should see his custom cowboy boots with a Royal Flush done in colored tanned leather!


The 'tortuga' or turtle bus stops everywhere. It's a cheap local means of transport and an easy way to get a very affordable tour of the area.


Bustling downtown Ajijic, a gringo enclave.


The old church located on Ajijic's plaza is done in the classic Mexican style.


Oh Baby! A Mexican cutie with drinks!


Walking down the main street in Chapala.


At Monday Market, walking through the stalls, Mother, daughters and cell phones of course!


Fresh honey, honeycomb and bee pollen for sale at Monday Market, Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico


Pozole with all the traditional trimmings sold at a neighborhood Cenaduria. A must-try!


Ernesto makes his famous churros - a deep fried and sugar coated donut. Tasty!


The Ancianos are on the Plaza in Chapala daily selling their roasted corn and beans.


Another new restaurant in Ajijic which is quite busy in the mornings.


Beautiful Lake Chapala.


The Lourdes church just outside downtown Chapala. A favorite for first communions and quince de anos celebrations.


On the way to Ajijic from Chapala, the hills surround the lake road making for a pleasant ride.


Spectacular view from our friends' house, just outside Jocotepec.


"La Oficina" where the boys meet to discuss important matters over a few beers. This is where the business of Chapala really gets done!
