The Wednesday Tianguis in Ajijic

We love going to the Wednesday tianguis in Ajijic.  Whether you need produce, a new pair of socks, a necklace, some coffee or a pancake flipper you will find it there.  Take a look at the photos above to see what fun it is!  And I only took pictures of about 1/20th of the vendors!  (Page through the photos above with the right/left arrows)  ...
