What do we do all day? When my husband and I decided to stay in Mexico for a 3 month stretch, we also made the decision to “live” in Mexico and not be just “tourists”.
A “typical” day? First, you do not sleep in unless you are somehow able to ignore the roosters crowing and the dogs barking. If you are able to do that, then the next challenge is the military practicing their marching, complete with drums and bugles at 7:30 am. Then at 8:00 am the church bells start.
Once we have checked our emails and had our morning coffee, we head out on our daily morning walk before the heat of the day. Each day we have a “goal”. Yesterday it was to find a knife sharpener and with some “Spanglish “and hand signs, we were able to find one. We also decided to pick up some groceries. We don’t buy enough for a week as it is always more fun to seek out new to us stores. So here is our list of shopping complete with costs:
1 kg. Brown sugar 26.95 pesos
1 kg. Granola 28.67 p
400 g. Quaker oats 13.50 p
2 margarita glasses
And tongs 73.00 p
½ kg. Ground beef 35.00 p
1 doz. Eggs; cinnamon;
And vanilla 31.00 p
Knife sharpener 20.00 p
Lunch: 2 tortas (similar to Panini’s) and 2 large juices
TOTAL 399.00 p = 36.00 cdn
We stop to talk to friends and acquaintances or new people. Once home again, we need to decide if we are going to the beach, up to the palapa or have a nap or combination of all three!! We have dinner, visit neighbours and our day has ended and we are surprised at how quickly it seemed to go. Tomorrow is another day and another adventure.
