In old San Pedro we visited an Artesania Fare with many crafts from all over Mexico. We saw a little of everything from handmade guitars, clothing, woven baskets, Jewelry to handmade Sweets. On the whole the day was such a sensory experience! There were fountains gurgling, birds chirping & soft pan flute music. With the tiny paper flags called Picados fluttering everywhere it was a day which should have been painted rather than simply capturing with film. The oppressive heat seemed to lift for a time as we strolled the tented walkways of crafts & foods. We even stopped for fresh fruit Ice Cream. *The only fly in the ointment so to speak was the crowd gathered to watch a body being removed across from the Artesanias Fare... Oh well. I did stop to ponder the fact that I had never seen such a sight while having ice cream!! Life in Mexico~take the good with the bad!
True Artesanias in Mexico are handmade by master of their crafts & traditions handed down in the same families from one generation to the next.
