I FINALLY got to the jardin to sit on the bench and observe life in San Miguel. My usual routine used to be that I would get there every Monday and Friday. It has been quite a long time since that has happened. I felt the need........to watch life in Mexico again.
There are times on the bench when no one walks by and one can just contemplate the azure blue sky or the flowers hanging on the fence in front of the icon of San Miguel, the Parroquia. But, it doesn't last long.
Just taking off and going.
The teenagers look like kids from anywhere. One of the musicians was handing out free cds. Every one of those who received a free cd said "Gracias". It was a delight just to sit and enjoy their happiness.
It is such a relaxing thing to just sit and wait to see what is going to happen. Something always does.
Leaving the jardin to meet friends for lunch, I was driving since the restaurant was on the other side of town.
Up ahead was a sight I love to see.
Oh, and another thing, at Christmas time, "locals" take wrapped gifts and plop them around the little stool for the policemen to take home for their Christmas. First time I saw that I was amazed. Now I just smile!
