It is hard to believe that this typical Mexican town of Valle de Banderis is only 15 kms from the touristy Puerto Vallarta. It's a shame that so many people who visit Mexico never see anything beyond their resort property.
Central plaza in Valle de Banderas.
Monday was market day in this town, so we went and bought some fruits and veggies. Ruth bought a huge cantaloupe that weighed well over 2 kilo's...I meant to take a pic of it, but she got it cut up before we remembered the pic. And we bought a couple of steaks and a kilo of ground beef. Had the steaks for dinner and they were terrible...mine was so tough I couldn't eat it. Hopefully the ground beef is better!
Went for a walk back in the hills in the afternoon. We were trying to get high enough for a view of the valley, but didn't get to any nice lookouts. We'll try again before we leave here. We did see this big fella though...
The picture doesn't do it justice, but this guy was huge!
One of my cousins is in Puerto Vallarta with his wife just now, so we're hoping to meet up with them today. If we don't hear back from them, we'll go into the city anyhow, I think. And, readers Stan and Marilyn had wanted to meet up as well, but no return emails from them, so hopefully they'll read this and send us a note!
