Only in Mexico

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

So this can only happen in Mexico......yesterday at the bottom of our mountain they started to dig up the cobblestone calle (road). It got to a point where no one could drive past and we "folks" that live on the top of the mountain are just out of luck! It's about 3/4 mile up a steep hill from where the road is closed to our houses up on the mountain. I walk it everyday as part of my walk with the dogs. I walk way down and do about 3.5 miles per day so for me it's not a problem walking up the mountain....but of course, since it's Mexico they gave us no warning or anything. Our neighbors had to leave their cars at the bottom of the mountain as when they were out doing errands they tore up the road and couldn't get back up the mountain. If it were in the states we would have been warned so that we could have the proper groceries, etc. Actually I don't think in the US they would be able to totally close you off from your home. What about an emergency????? The good news is that we all are in good health right now and I don't think that there will be an emergency. I do need groceries and I was going to go out and get stuff but it will have to wait as I can't get the car passed the mess. If it were something critical I could always walk about 2 miles to a little store at the bottom of the mountain.
Oh well, got to love Mexico!
Hope all my sparks buddies have a great day.
