May 11, 2010 - Melaque - Day 4
As Tom & I sit pondering our next move, we listen to the ocean next to us and look up at the lights of nearby Barra de Navidad. Should we move tomorrow or stay here for another day? Wednesday, is tianquis (market) day in Melaque. Tianquis serve the local (and tourist) population and come to small towns that do not have large stores of their own. They sell everything - food, clothes, shoes and any other type of stuff you could possibly need. It is tempting to stay but the Michoachan coast is calling. Winston is recovering and one more day would be nice. In addition there is a salon here and I need a pedicure and a massage. The massages in Mexico are usually quite good and for $25.00 or much less you can get 1 and 1/2 hours of much needed muscle relaxation. Also, although I am not into shopping there is still one very cool shop that sells some attractive sarongs and skirts. I feel very relaxed. Tom did his lemon-garlic chicken for dinner with rice, it was very good. And, every time we enter the motorhome it is filled with the scent of the lilies and red roses that I got for Mother's Day. Life is indeed a wonderful thing. Maybe one more day here will be good. We'll see.
