A friend of mine has retired in the idyllic town of Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico. It is a little town just outside of Guadalajara. So off to Guadalajara I went. It is only a 3.5 hour flight so in the middle of the night, I left Oakland arriving in Guadalajara in the early morning hours.
Rosario, the friend who I am visiting, picked us up at the Guadalajara airport. From the airport, we drove down to Jocotepec. But first a breakfast stop. Cute restaurant name, Yeah?
This was my breakfast...Chilaquiles con huevo. Deliciouso! (Ok, I probably butchered spellings here.)
After breakfast, we continue on to Jocotepec. It is close to the huge and beautiful Lake Chapala. For years, she has invited me to visit her and somehow I have been unable to until last week. I am glad that I did!
It is only about 40 kilometers from the urban center that is Guadalajara. It is understandable why many retirees from the U. S. and Canada retreat to this lovely town.
These structures welcome the visitors into town.
At Roca Azul, a section of Jocotepec, my friend has a beautiful home! No wonder she loves it here!!!
Tomorrow or in a couple of days, more on my lovely trip.
