Today we ventured 50 kms south to a beautiful town of Ajijic. This town is nestled on the shores of Laguna de Chapalo clean and painted in bright colors. The old original buildings from the Spanish all maintain there original style keeping this town with the Mexican appearance. It is hugely populated with Americans enjoying the culture and sun and a laid back retired lifestyle. This has taken away slightly to the real Mexico as new houses have been built and unlike the last two months of our travel that has been small Mexican towns all Spanish and lots of Beans and Rice cows and horses in the camping areas, roosters crowing at 3 AM and all Spanish, this town displays signs in English and serves American food at its restaurants. A culture shock to us after all this time, but as we are leaving for the 3500 foot decent to the shorelines of Melaque tomorrow a Spanish tourist town with mostly Canadians we must be in training for crossing the border back to Canada April 6th. It was a beautiful stay at Chiamculco resort, lots of sun hot springs and a unique real Mexican town.
