Each morning I head up to the pool about 7:30, since the weather is warm here it t-shirt
and shorts weather. At home it takes me about the same amount of time to get to the pool, but I’m in a car using gas and bundled up in hats gloves,scarves and warm jacket. My pool is an Olympic size pool which I occasionally share with two or three others. As it is covered it is a little chilly to jump into at that time of day, but not as cold as the heated pool on the Navy base I normally swim at. Since I walk to and from the pool I only lap swim for 30 minutes instead of the 45 minutes at home and my wonderful fitbit tracks it all. At home the locker room is very nice with lots of good friends to visit with, here the locker room is a horror and no one to visit with. The showers don’t work, only few of the stalls have doors and the toilets flush via the “clarifacador” .
One of the anomaly’s of mexico is that few of public restrooms have toilet seats. You have to wonder where they all disappear to. It’s Mexico you just roll with the punches.
I usually make a stop at the Mercado Publico on the way back from swimming for fruits and veggies and the occasional chicken. Our food is so fresh here I shop almost daily to take advantage of it. Beautiful ripe strawberries, avocados, papaya and stuff I have never seen before. The mercado is a site and sensory over load, no picture can capture the sites and smells. One of my favorite places, also the money I spend there stays with the local people, no big corporation involved.
Today we had lunch with old friends at the Villa Mexicana where two of our friends are staying, It’s a lovely hotel, good food, but great friends doing some catching up with and reminiscing with. Signing of KO
