That's a long way to have to carry a watermelon!
The selection was pretty good, but some of the quality was lacking compared to what we are used to when we go to the local market up in Valle de Juarez near Hacienda Contreras. We didn't buy carrots, broccoli, or cauliflower because it wasn't up to par.
The apples looked nice, but they are imported from the U.S. and they were expensive.
We ended up going to a fruit and veggie store in town and bought the rest of the stuff.
We saw some pretty little Mexican style dresses and Ruth wanted to get one for our granddaughter Sadie. We did purchase one, but we won't show it to you yet because we'll be seeing our granddaughter in nine days...so we'll show it to you when she's wearing it!

Then, we had to carry all our stuff home! The backpack was pretty heavy, and Ruth had things in her bag as well. And yes, we did have a small watermelon in there as well! Even a small watermelon is pretty heavy! Definitely hot and sweaty by the time we finished that mile back to the RV Park.
Heading back to the park.
Made it, without breaking any eggs!
We still think it's funny buying a bag of eggs. But when you buy them in the small shops here, that's the way it's done. And you buy them by the kilo...so they actually weigh each bag.
Beautiful sunrise this morning...but you'll have to wait for tomorrow's blog post to see it!!
