We strolled through Chapala today, having comida in our favorite restaurant with a view, Casadores. The we walked along the malecon, the walkway along the water. On the other side is a huge park. One thing you have to know about Mexico: people USE the parks. And they consume beverages and eat food there! I think you'd be arrested in the U.S. for how people enjoy parks here.
The small sign says: Don't sit on the grass. Laws are "usefully interpreted" in Mexico rather than obeyed. Francisco and I got a good laugh out of this.
