Mexico scenes taken a couple of years ago in Puerto Vallarta and environs. Looking back over a few recent photos, and getting ready to head out again for a couple of weeks to the states of Quintana Roo and Yucatan.
Boca de Tomatlan, a very small town where construction work is done by hand, no big-rig equipment to help. The streets are narrow, and still cobblestone. We parked up the hill and walked down into the town that is at the ocean’s edge.
El Tuito, farther down the highway, an inland town not on the coastline, that I had read about from a friend I met on Twitter. The town is small and not a lot going on; the draw here was to visit a French couple running a B&B. We were there just for the day, and I wish we could have stayed. The B&B was a wonderful mix of French and Mexican décor, and hearing the owners speaking Spanish with a French accent was a delight. The B&B is Hotelito Jardin Del Tuito. I learned a hard lesson here; I have no photos of the place because the battery on my camera ran out, and no backup. Live and learn; the following photos were taken prior to getting to the Hotelito.
The day was blistering hot even though it was November, and I’ve edited the photos to black and white leaving in a brightness and glare that so reminded me of the sun blasting down, and the heat that day.
When I travel, it is the small towns and villages that attract me, not necessarily those that have been made famous by a tower or cathedral or palace. It’s that little bit of the everyday that attracts me.
We leave Tuesday morning, and I will say adios for now. While I am away, I will try to post a few photos over on my other blog, Pata de Perro, that will be photos only, as I plan on making this a getaway from the internet to just relax, and enjoy some downtime. Time to fill up that creative well again.
