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.

A Fun Sunday





(Note: Pictures appear in the opposite order from which they are described.)We took the bus into Chapala today and went to the lakeshore where they have a special market on weekends. You will see a picture of me on a bench chatting with some folks who are staying at the same b&b. Next picture is of a little stall with trays of little deep fried fish (no, I didn't try them),cups of various juices and some gorgeous pineapples. The next photo shows some picturesque boats that were for hire and we saw a beautiful crane sitting in a tree, standing out quite prominently against the blue sky. Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday too!

Hi Betty! I am just loving all of you pictures! I feel like I'm on vacation with you :) (or maybe I'm just delirious from all the cold weather LOL!)
