Ajijic Open Air Market

Today is Friday.

Tomorrow morning we head to Manzanillo which is on the Pacific Coast. (It was where they filmed the movie “10” with Bo Derek , remember the corn-row hair? back in 1979)

EVERYONE tells us it is VERY hot. But since we’re staying in a 3 bedroom condo on the beach, we’ll just live in the pool or boogie boarding in the ocean to cool off.  Yep, it’s a tough life but someone has to do it!  😉

Before we left this area we wanted to visit the outdoor market.  They call it a Tiengues (no idea about spelling but sounds something like “Tea-Eng-Guess”.

You can buy tons of different things there. Fresh fruit & vegetables, bootleg CDs & DVDS, clothing, Pizza (yum!), and sooo many other things.

We bought fresh shrimp just brought in from the coast for about $4.50 a pound, made some delicious guacamole with fresh avocados, and had some other local yummies at a great dinner out on our terraza (outside porch) with some friends we’ve made down here.

There is also a local artist market where you can see some very interesting hand crafted works.

At the entrance. That's not Austin next to me but his buddy Brycen
