    On the Shores of Lake Chapala: Part 2


    In this post, you’ll see a collection of photos I took around Ajijic, which will help give you a feeling for the place.

    My images don’t necessarily show it, but the streets in Ajijic were some of the narrowest I’ve ever seen in my travels and the cobblestones were extremely rough. While I”m told that many of the locals like the rustic feeling, I found the streets to be quite dangerous. You could easily turn an ankle or break a bone if you weren’t careful.

    Where the streets became considerably better was on the waterfront and outside of the central area of town. There were still dangerous cobblestones, but the streets were much wider. Generally, in town I found it to be quite cramped and I felt somewhat claustrophobic.

    I got lucky one afternoon and got this shot of the Mexican crane, a beautiful bird, roughly the size of a Blue Heron.
