Rural Mexico

One morning I went for a walk around the park and found this lime tree. Found it strange to see fresh limes in April. We used a couple of them in our Margaritas that night.
Limes on the limb
Nancy bought a chair from this roadside vendor. He had an assortment of stools, chairs and tables upholstered in leather. I was amazed to see the man sitting in the chair had polished shoes with all the dust around here.

On our first day here we went to see the small dairy farm. Today we see a herd of cattle walking alongside the road. One of the cows decided to walk in front of us just as we got close to it. Good thing the van has good brakes.

Walking down the stairs we had a good view of the waterfall. The cool spray was very refreshing on this hot, muggy day.

The park had an enclosure with sheep, chickens and a couple of warthogs. Nancy walked over to another cage and the bird came over and put it's head close to the fence so that Nancy could scratch it's head. Nancy & bird
Very friendly little critter.

It was good to see that recycling programs are being encouraged at this park.

The little girl in the picture is Maria and she was in the square with her brother and grandmother. Granny said it was OK to take their picture. She has beautiful eyes.

Seems to be a common thing for us to see cows on our trip. Another herd crossed the road in front of us.
Why did the cows cross the road?

I wonder how may kilometres to a bale of hay this horse gets. Someone had ridden him into town and tied him up while they were shopping.

This sign says the restaurant is closed on Wednesday and Thursday.We were too busy talking and did not notice The sign. The owner apologized that they were closed and then remembered that Nancy told him she would be back with visitors from Canada. Next thing you know we were sitting at a table eating chicken fajitas.Talk about great customer service!
Closes Wednesday and Thursday?

This is one very hard working man. He would take a full wheelbarrow of the adobe mixture to where he would place it into the wooden form. Look close and you will see he is not wearing anything on his feet. Before I took these pictures I asked if it was OK, they smiled and said "OK".

Brick maker
Another brick for the wall. After letting the bricks dry on one side they are placed on edge to let the other side to dry.
