Summer does grind on in Mazatlán…

September 27, 2013


Here we are, finally.  The end of September.  Rainy.  Hot.  Humid.

And there’s more than a month to go.  Rainy season usually ends in the first week of November.

We’ve had two huge rains this season – one about 10 inches and one more than 11. (That’s from my unofficial bucket rain gauge.)

October is the tough month.  You’ve just had enough.

Last year we went to Mexico City for two weeks, and this year we are heading to Ajijic.  It’ll be a small road trip but that will be fun in our new car.  We found an apartment through Air B & B again, that really is a great way to find a nice place to stay.

We’re looking forward to meeting a friend (we met her through blogging) for the first time and get together with friends who used to live here in Mazatlán.  The weather should be a bit cooler but the humidity will be about half of what we’re used to, which will be great. We’ll go to Guadalajara – to Costco and also to Tonala, but mostly we’ll be exploring the area around Lake Chapala.

I’m taking my camera and look forward to sharing some of what we experience.  By the time we get back summer will be almost over and our snowbird friends will be starting to stream back into town.  Hasta pronto!

    1. Mazatlan will miss you both, Nancy. Looking forward to your photos and hearing about your adventures in Ajijic.

      1. Thanks so much everyone, we are really looking forward to our little getaway. I plan on checking out all the tianguis, buying lots of organic or natural goodies that we can’t find in Maz, eating Indian, Chinese, and whatever other delicious food we find, and exercising in the moderate humidity. Also reading a bunch of books and finishing my latest knitting project. See you!

    1. I am sure the car will be a dream ride. And with all those great new tracks you will have prepared for the trip! Wonderful.

    1. Have a great time! We have a lot of humidity here in North Carolina so I know what you’re going through. Looking forward to seeing hearing about your trip.

    1. What an incredible journey. I can’t wait until you write about it so I can live vicariously through your stories.

    1. That sounds like a very sensible plan, LOL. I don’t know how you manage the summer heat at the coast. Enjoy your respite, I look forward to seeing the pictures.

    1. Let the adventure begin!! Looking forward to your travel tales. Hopefully the orads will not have been affected by the recent storms.
