Tonola Market

Tonola is a community just East of Guadalajara that is is famous for it's Market on Thursdays and Sundays. We headed out for the market after the traffic died down at about ten this morning with another couple from the RV Park. We followed directions provided by another resident and eventually found ourselves in Tonola. The market was huge, stretching several blocks down the main street. We drove to the end, getting some idea of the scale of the place, found some public parking and set off walking. We started down one side of the street and were quite surprised when we reached the end. We could not believe we had walked that many blocks. The market is a choreography of colours, smells and sounds! Anyone who has been to Mexico will know exactly what I mean and the rest of you will find out when you come here!

We walked back on the other side which held the better quality furniture and lawn ornaments. It would be great if we had a truck to bring all the "stuff" we wanted to buy back home, but alas! We had no room for it. We walked all the way back to the car and returned back to the Park in time for "Happy Hour" at 4:00. All in all a wonderful day and once again, in Guadalajara, Life Is Good!
