To experience this community is to walk it, for beyond the walls and doorways is where you find life coming together in a celebration of work and play, in a day to day waltz along malecone, cobblestone streets, past brightly painted buildings, and smiling faces.



 Beyond the Garden

devoid of expectation

life is a surprise


doubling down

            on a walk around the town


it’s cobblestones & potholes

                        eyes on the ground


sole food & dog shit

                        watching were you step


leaf cutters & ankle biters

                        bane to buds and bare feet


Bobos & boom booms

                        foolishness & fun times


pampered pets & vendors

                        nipping at your heels


barking dogs & banging drums

                        marching around the town


sweet smells & pungent odors

                        a medley of sensory delight

 The photography focuses on Lake Chapala and the surrounding villages that include Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec an so much more.  In addition to my pics many have been contributed by Antonio Ramblés  . Visit Antonio Ramblés travels blog at
