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.

We're at Lake Chapala, Mexico!

Hello all! It was a long, tiring trip but we arrived at Lake Chapala Mexico yesterday. We spent the night with a friend that I met while living at El Parque last year. We were supposed to be able to get into our rental house this morning but they didn't have it ready so we had to wait until later this afternoon. We had a wonderful lunch today at a seafood restaurant close by where we will be living. I had breaded shrimp with mango sauce and Larry had coconut tempura fish with mango sauce. Both were delicious!
After unloading our car, we're both dead tired and just plan to have a pimento cheese sandwich and turn in early. I've even been too tired to walk around our complex and see the beautiful pool and clubhouse. Wonder if I'll be able to make it until 9:00 pm before having to hit the bed!! Hope to be able to post a picture or two tomorrow!
