more flea, less market

Monday's tianguis revealed that there is more call for used stuff ~ clothing, tools, furnishings ~ than there is for food. There are about 100 stalls in the 6-block stretch of the market. There are about 10 food stalls; the rest are given over to a huge variety of other goods.  Mr. C did manage to find himself a new pair of shorts for 50 pesos, about $4.

 My favorite market stall is still there, offering up great vegetables at ridiculous prices.

We bought beautiful green beans, a cauliflower head, lettuce, peppers, carrots, onions, cucumbers, strawberries and, of course, some of these beauties for our Sundlay morning treat.

Yesterday we sent in to Tecoman to pay our annual bank trust. This little chore can take anywhere from 3 days (last year) to l0 minutes (this year) depending on the teller you get. This year we got the same woman who finally solved her co-workers' befuddlement last year so it was just a breeze. We're now all paid up for another year. Still no internet at home. Maybe today. I have photos waiting to be posted but this connection at Jack's is not very reliable so I figure I've tested it's strength enough.
