So far my time in Mexico has been great even with some minor setbacks. The bus system can be interesting at times but for the most part it is reliable. Today we went to two communities about 1 hour south of Guad along Lake Chapala. Teri know some people in Ajijac (she seems to know many people down here I guess it pays tto be friendly). We had lunch at a place called Gossips which is a great fusion type of restaurant. Ajijac is a place where you will find a ton of ex-pats from the States, Canada and even Europe. After lunch we walked around the town and it was a great walking city by the lake.
One last thing about Ajijac was that I noticed a lot of South Dakota. Since South Dakota is a small state I had to ask why so many South Dakota plates. The story I was told is that a county in South Dakota makes it easy for you to have tags there even if you don’t live there. Basically a win for the county and a win for the ex-pat. Ten miles from Ajijac is the slightly bigger town of Chapala. There are probably more shops here. Another difference is it probably have a higher percentage of Mexicans living here. Both towns are cute and are right on the water.
