    Howdy Donnie, I haven't read the entire thread but occasional observations from Modesta would be great. It's always enlightening to see my country through the eyes of a person from somewhere else. Enjoying the photos and Spanish translations

    I like that idea! If you are a long time follower of mine, you may remember, my late wife wrote an entry each day. Modesta writes Spanish very well!

    I spent a month in Cosala, Sinaloa in the late 70's (very small village then). One of the guys I drank beer with there came to the US and I remember his impressions of grocery stores in California. He was amazed at the size, how bright they were, and that there was a whole isle just for dog and cat food. I always remember his impressions when I'm shopping for dog biscuits. Modesta's observations could be equally enlightening

    There were people surfing out there! The air temperature was in the 60s F and I am sure the water was cold!
