Our faithful readers will have noticed that we haven’t been updating our blog very much lately. We’ve been in Ajijic for nearly 6 weeks and have only posted a few blog entries. The first week we were here we enrolled William and Julian in a pre-school here and we’ve had every morning (Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 1PM) without William and Julian. It really hasn’t been for lack of time that we haven’t been writing blog entries – simply laziness. It had been a long time since we have had so much “free” time and we’ve really enjoyed it. The main thing we accomplished was to become totally addicted to the TV show House, MD. We downloaded and watched all 3 seasons in less than 4 weeks. That is a total of 70 episodes. If you realize that we have been watching that much TV it is no wonder we have not had any time to write blog entries. And even if we had gotten around to writing, what would we have written about other than Dr. House? We haven’t been doing anything else except watching that show?

When you drive into Ajijic there is a sign that says “Riviera Alta.” You might think it means the OLD Riviera since aside from the dozen Mexicans that live in this town all you see here are ex-pat retirees from the US and Canada. High-water socks, bad Hawaiian shirts draping over big bellies, thick wide black old people glasses, canes, grey hair, etc. are all encountered every time we step out of the apartment. Really “Riviera Alta” means the high Riviera since the elevation here is over 5000 feet, but I chuckle every time I see that sign since “alt” in German does actually mean “old”.
