Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Back Home in Texas





Well, we had a lovely vacation but today was the day we had to say goodbye to new friends we've made in Mexico. So sad to leave but we made it home safely and that was a tremendous blessing in addition to the wonderful times we enjoyed while in Mexico. On Monday we went to Guadalajara which is a beautiful city with a fascinating history. The old buildings are so beautiful and stately! After walking around and looking at the historical district we went to a nearby market; had lunch there and looked around a bit -- you could find anything and everything there! Next we went to a nearby town named Tlaquepaque and saw lots of art shops and heard a female mariachi band playing. What a fun trip it was and we got back to our bed & breakfast tired, but happy!
