Hola! Today we went to the market! Is there an official name to this market? I don’t know. I do know that Sunday is the busiest day to go. However, I am pleasantly surprised – the crowds are light today.
Today’s the day! My dogs will finish up their 3 day journey from Ohio into Central Mexico today! That’s right, they went on a dog road trip!
