Ajijic's new sign

Post by CanuckBob on Sat Oct 27, 2018 9:17 am

I imagine everyone has seen the new sign on the Ajijic malecon?

I'm a little puzzled that they put it blocking the view

Because they want it to be part of the view! Just like the one in Chapala.

Cute, but it won't take long for either
(a) our local "artists" will have at it as they do in the skate park, or
(b) it will be destroyed as the benches have been.

BTW, it's just the right height for doggie attention.

I wonder how the decision was made to budget this object rather than repair the many needy items on the Malecon and in the park?

Perception is an amazing thing. I really enjoy the "artwork" in the skatepark and am amazed that they keep it confined to this area. I highly doubt they would touch the Ajijic sign. As for the benches they look to me like have simply deteriorated not been "destroyed".

I do agree that fixing some other things should have been a higher priority although I suspect this money may have been earmarked from the state or federal government as they are putting similar signs in every tourist town around Mexico.

I disagree with you, gringal. The sign in Chapala hasn't been defaced or destroyed. In fact, it's hugely popular, especially with the tapatios and other tourists. They line up to take pictures with their friends and families at this sign!

If you turn out to be correct, then I'll bottle my cynicism.

I have been glad to see that the "artists" have confined their creations to the skateboard park itself, and some of it is amazingly well done.

I do disagree that the benches have simply "deteriorated".  Many have boards missing altogether... as in torn off.

Now, about dogs pissing on it....they do so on everything else.
lol!

I wouldn't want to meet the dog that's large enough to piss on the letters of the sign. That would be one HUGE dog! Dogs piss on everything on the malecon (trees, benches, light poles, etc), and you're worried about them doing it on the sign?

Do I sound "worried" about it? Please. Anything and everything gets pissed on, so of course it will be included and during the dry season, it will be good and ripe.
lol!

Is it past the skateboard park? Or where? I haven't made it as far as the sign as yet. Maybe next week.

Where do you expect the dogs to go? And as far as the smell goes, I've never smelled dog piss anywhere along the malecon, anytime of the year.

Enough grasping at the obvious. Somebody got up on the nitpicking side of the bed today.
:roll:Let's see: how do I put this: I WAS NOT BEING SERIOUS!! Will that do? Hope so.

I think they are pushing for the Magic City designation.

Thanks for the photo. The sign is cute (like all the others they've put up throughout Mexico). It's happy and colorful and celebratory.

The dog pee discussion is retarded.

LOL. I remember the song "sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug". Same philosophy.

And sometimes it is you're, and at other times it is your. Best to know the difference.
