Summer vacation has lasted a bit longer in mind as far as blogging goes – took a little tooo much time off from blogging but now back I wanted to share some of my vacation with you . I went to visit a dear friend in Ajijic. Mexico. I know you never heard of it, which is crazy since its so beautiful 1 mile up the mountains near Mexico’s largest lake . It was the rainy season which meant the surrounding mountains were very lush, you slept like a baby to the sound of rain, awoke to gorgeous clouds ( next blog) and had perfectly mild days near 80 with blue skies…..all the while avoiding NYC’s horrendous heat wave…yes I went to mexico to cool off. Aside from two eye sores of American chains that I saw, the place makes you feel like you truly went away. I was fascinated with the very rural towns and the perfectly manicured topiaries living so well together all around Ajijic ( yes there I go, taking photos of all the trees again) . I thought I would start to share my trip with you by sharing first the topiaries with more to come…..
