It's Over

Our first Christmas Season in Mazatlan is over and we are absolutely exhausted!

New Years Eve ended with an adventure. We arrived home from our party at Canuck's somewhere around 1 a.m. and the speakers that had arrived early in the afternoon were still just booming.

We all decided that we might as well join in, as there was no way anyone was going to get any sleep anyway. We met all the neighbours, one very cute little girl, even one of the waiters from our favourite restaurant, La Cueva del Leon.

Even Abi came out to join us for awhile.

Unfortunately we were having such a good time, we didn't go inside til 4 a.m.

New Year's Day was pretty low key, until we went to friends for a traditional southern New Year's Day dinner - ham, greens and black eyed peas. Brenda and Wayne also tossed in scalloped potatoes and devilled eggs for good measure. We ate til we could eat no more and laughed ourselves silly, and then staggered up the hill to bed!

We have Wined Dined and Danced until we are ready to drop.

We have had so much fun - we've visited with friends, for drinks and snacks, and also for dinners. We've hosted the same at our home. We haven't missed a salsa lesson and last night attended a wonderful wine tasting party. We've spent many wonderful evenings sitting at the Plaza Machado admiring the lights and the beautiful Mexican people.

We realized one day that there were three cruise ships in town, so invited friends over to watch them leave and just generally enjoy the lights of the city in the early evening.

But it really is time to take a break. I've just looked at the calendar and this week looks fairly peaceful. So far.

Feliz Ano Nuevo!


  1. Boy, you were up early today and posting! That party looked really fun and I have yet to attend a street fiesta. I have two days this week free which is amazing. Have you EVER had such a crazy social life?! This place takes the cake. Just got an evite this morning to a party next week, so it, too, is off to a trampoline start. See you soon.

  2. Hi guys
    I'm so glad to hear you joined the street party; I knew it would be fun!Bravo to you both for reaching out and joining in community life and celebrating the New year.
