Next time, it'll be for a couple of weeks!
Our friend Paco drove us to the Toluca bus terminal yesterday in time for the 10:50am bus. It cost 61 pesos ($5.30) each for the hour and a half ride.
This lady had sat on the bus in front of Ruth. When she got on, she turned around and shook Ruth's hand and started talking to her, all friendly and with a big smile. We love Mexico!
The first two times we were here, it was with our motorhome.The place we like to stay is not a campground, and there are no actual RV sites. It's an "embarcadero", or marina. But there are some RV's here, and it's actually the spot where we first met Paco and Oti. They are among a rare group of Mexicans who actually own a motorhome!
The third time we were here was in January o 2013, so almost two years ago. We had the little blue car with us, and we stayed in a small apartment that we rented from the owner of the marina. This time, the apartment was already occupied, and Paco suggested we ask our other friends Pepe and Maricruz if we could use their lake home that they built on this property over the last couple of years. (This is the dentist and his wife who we were out for dinner with the other night). They said "sure", and so here we are!

The last time we were here, I had written a piece about how low the water level was in the lake.
Well, how things can change! Mexico City and this area have had a lot of rain this past summer. So much, that Mexico City hasn't been drawing any water from the lake here and the water level is near an all time high! Of course it will begin to go down now that rainy season is over, but still...we are very surprised!
The last time we were here with the motorhome, in February of 2012.
Taken this morning! The water is almost up to the patio table!
See that little tree on the right, sitting in the water?
That's the same tree on the lower left in January of 2013!
Later yesterday afternoon, we took the collectivo taxi into the big Soriana grocery store and stocked up for the weekend. We don't plan on doing very much except for relaxing! It looks like a beautiful day, supposed to be a very comfortable high of 25C (77F)
