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 Slower Wednesday


This is the restaurant where I had lunch yesterday. It is on the central plaza of Ajijic which is a common gathering place for locals and expats alike (the plaza, that is!). Very relaxing to sit out under the umbrellas and watch the goings on! I was moving a little slower yesterday (but that's okay in Mexico!). Went to sleep with the overhead fan on and got too cool during the night (not good for the asthma). So I was coughing again yesterday although not too badly. Learned my lesson and turned off the fan before falling to sleep last night!
As I was walking around in exploration mode yesterday, I saw this interesting doorway and thought that it might be one my friends would like to see. I'm also going to share a picture of Lake Chapala. You've seen the mountains to the north and here's the lake to the south!
I'm hoping to be able to move into my rental today. Will let you know if that comes about or not!

Ditto what Patti said..... You are my eyes and ears right now and I can almost smell the local flavors! Go easy with the moving in. Is there a market nearby? Do most people just keep a day or two of the staples? Hugs!

Betty do they have any american food there, or fast food places?? Can't wait to see your rental!! Glad you are feeling a little better. Sounds like you may have made the right decision based on what the other lady said. How did Amanda's appt. go??
