Catfish Afternoon

I took my visiting friend Christine for a ride around the lake and into Michoacan to Petatan, a little town out on a peninsula that is home to dozens of fisheries and a few restaurants where the catch is about as fresh as it can get. Thousands of egrets, gulls, coots and black wing-tipped pelicans float and fly back and forth waiting for fish parts to be tossed into the water. In the restaurant we chose, the day’s special was blackened catfish and as you can see below, Christine enjoyed every moment of hers. A non-fish-lover, I opted for quesadillas and beans!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Churches–Jocotepec Church

The Jocotepec, Jalisco, church is beautifully constructed of irregularly-shaped stone with smaller stones laid into the grout.  The base of each of the huge palm trees in the courtyard is surrounded by a huge metal or clay pot handcrafted by local artisans.  Although I live in the municipality of Jocotepec, my village is actually the smaller pueblo of San Juan Cosala.
