We won't bore you with the details of our market expenditures. Suffice to say that we will eat another week's worth of fruits and vegetables for very little money!
This was Renate's first visit to the market here, and when she went to pay for her goods she simply couldn't believe that it was only 20 pesos ($1.68) for what she bought. I think Renate likes it here!
Our regular readers might remember when we visited "the castle" in late December of 2011. We had actually been there one previous time and had met the owner of the place, Raphael, a couple of times.
Well yesterday, Barb and Sal and some of the regulars here were invited to a wedding reception at the castle! It's kind of weird attending a wedding of someone you don't know, especially when you were invited by the guy who owns the place hosting the reception. But, this is Mexico and the bride was very gracious in acknowledging our presence when our group presented her with an envelope and card.
We think this was the sixth wedding reception we've attended in Mexico over the years! And definitely one of the fanciest.

The wedding cake!
Lots of fancy tables both inside and out.
Camper Jerry, thinking he might like to try some of that tequila!
Lots of snacks and appetizers served before dinner. We thought it was funny that everything was so fancy bu the food was served on styrofoam plates.

The happy couple.
