Street Scenes in Copala

Copala is the small village where we went for the world famous Banana Cream Coconut Pie. The little girls were playing in the street and our friend Les gave two of them a candy and motioned for the third to come and get one. The girl in the green dress said, in perfect English, "would you like me to call my little sister?" It turns out they lived in Texas for some time and were more than happy to pose for a few photos. I think I said it before but the children of Mexico are happy, smiling and well behaved. You hardly ever hear yelling or crying from them nor ever a harsh word from a parent. They play on the streets at night because it is safe to do so and everyone looks out for everyone else's children. It takes a village to raise a child and in Mexico it is done to perfection.
