Beautiful, magical Mexico Empty Beautiful, magical Mexico

Post by shana Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:09 pm

At 7:30 this morning I arrived on the Ajijic malecon just as the rain had stopped. The lake was quiet and calm. A few fishing boats were already out.
Mount Garcia was covered by huge, puffy white clouds and over the clouds was a magnificent rainbow that reached from the south shore to the north shore, sitting atop the greenery of the mountains towards the end of Ajijic.
If that was not enough splendor, there was a second, smaller and softer rainbow shadowing the large, brilliant one.
There were only a few of us out and we all stopped to view and appreciate this gift presented by mother nature at her finest.
Slowly the rainbows faded and the clouds over Mt. Garcia started to lessen. By 8:00 it had ended.
It was an extraordinary way to start the day.

Mexico is especially nice after a rainfall. The greens are greener and the air is fresh.

Koolaid or a shot of anything at all to appreciate a sight like the one described?

Hmmmmmm? Wish I'd a been there, with camera in hand.
Thanks, Shana.

I still have no idea what Sir meant by the 2/1 KoolAid comment. Hope s/he comes back to clarify.

It is possible that nothing gets past a basic cynicism which destroys all wonder.

That's kinda what I thought but am hoping for Sir's sake that I am wrong. It would be sad if someone is so focused on this area's flaws that they are blinded to its beauty, refusing to even acknowledge what others clearly see.

Well, some people are just involved in their Kool Aid. And there's this: some people can't imagine getting up to watch a sunrise.
