The 39th Chili Cook-Off in Ajijic

This year the 39th annual Chili Cook-Off was again held at Todolandia Water Part. But it was much further up the hill. I, as usual, arrived too early, walked up that hill and was too tired to walk back down to watch the parade arrive. So all you are getting is a photo of the […]

Father’s Day in Ajijic and the celebration of Men

Father’s Day in Ajijic and the celebration of Men

Today is June 19th, 2016, Father’s Day. I decided to go out this morning in search of a celebration honoring fathers. I thought it would be easy because I remember how exciting Mother’s Day was in Ajijic. But it wasn’t. There were no special celebrations in the plaza for fathers. No banners. No activities. Just […]
