The neighbouring town of Barra de Navidad hosted the “First Christmas International Floating Floats Parade”. So off we go to Barra on the “chicken” bus for a cost of 6 pesos which is approximately 55 cents Canadian. No, there aren’t any chickens on the buses but most of them look and sound like they are on their last legs. These buses are the lifeline for many working Mexicans.
The town had a very festive feel with people waiting to watch the parade. We wandered around taking in the sights and sounds.
We decided to try a bar called Piper Lovers, which is a biker bar. Very interesting. Apparently in the evening a band plays anything from rock to jazz. Our waiter spoke excellent English and chatted to us about real estate as we were interested in finding out what the market was like. He gave us his “business” card. In Mexico you do not need to be a licenced realtor in order to sell real estate.
After trying out the excellent fish and chips at Babba Digga’s which is a new pub in Barra, we headed towards the Malecon to watch the parade. We were fortunate to be able to get a water view seat in another restaurant. 15 boats took part and there were some very well decorated boats. The parade was well organized for their first attempt.
We managed to catch the last bus back to Melaque. All in all, a good day
