Rain that just won't go away....

Recently, the weather here is more like the Pacific Northwest than what one would expect in Mexico. In fact the weathermen are blaming the rain on climate changes being pushed over the mountains by Pacific frontal systems. Not sure I believe them since we are in fact closer to the Gulf of Mexico but it is rain, rain & more rain! Somehow between showers we are discovering places to go & things to do here.

Storms rolling over Santiago



ARTESANÍA DISEÑO
One of our favorite local places to browse & visit. Full of wonderful things from all over Mexico~much the same as a wonderful place in Nuevo Laredo from days gone by called: Marty's! The former Quinta is full of beautiful pottery, glassware, artsy pieces as well as some downright strange items. A fun stop as long as you avoid the local car chasing dog. Jacqueline, Ash & I nicknamed him "Winn Dixie" for his similar doggie features as that dog in the movies. Cute, but a pain in the backside when you try & leave the parking lot!
