After the last post, it seemed a good idea to show you La Capilla Azul which has, incidentally, 141 steps if I didn't miscount. This first picture is of a cat sitting above the road right before you start the climb. There are quite a few cats in our area which is I think unusual in Mexico. They are not what my mother-in-law called welfare cats. These cats are mousers par excellence. Seldom do they look underfed. Our cat, Louie, by the way, has himself become quite a mouser.
Jim generally is a bit ahead of me on these climbs up the steps. I don't know what he's looking at here. Probably a bug. He loves to take bug pictures
Closer to the Capilla.

This house is to the right of the Capilla, just below it. We've talked to the father and an adolescent son. They own the horse you will see in the next picture. The boy dropped out of school recently. I don't know why, but it is a shame, although a look at the texts they use makes me want to go to sleep. This is televised high school. If you miss a class, you miss the TV lesson. It's impossible to go back to see it again, I think. I need to find out more.
If I were a horse, I don't think I'd find grazing here half bad.

On the way home, we cross the Colonia park The primaria is on one side of it. You can see it in the picture on the left. On the way home, we also bought oranges from the truck parked near our house, the tail of which you can see in the picture on the right. Don't forget, you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.
