Ajijic - circa 1940's some things never change Empty Ajijic - circa 1940's some things never change

This article is from Tony Burton.

Ajijic inflation in the 1940s:
- “This pueblo has become a writers’ colony in the last decade, and that popularity has helped considerably to raise the local cost of living. Land that could be bought for 6 cents a square meter is now 10 times more. Room and board which could be had for a dollar a day is now two. Sugar is 15 cents a pound, eggs 50 cents a dozen. That is a lot for the inhabitants of this tucked away village.” — Mary Hirscheld, “Cleveland Plain Dealer” (10 April 1948).
- Photo, believed to be by Herbert Johnson, is Figure 10.1 in “Lake Chapala: a postcard history” (2022).

Inflación en Ajijic en la década de 1940:
- "Este pueblo se ha convertido en una colonia de escritores en la última década, y esa popularidad ha contribuido considerablemente a aumentar el costo de vida local. Terrenos que podían comprarse por 6 centavos el metro cuadrado ahora cuestan diez veces más. Una habitación con comida que antes se conseguía por un dólar al día ahora cuesta dos. El azúcar está a 15 centavos la libra, los huevos a 50 centavos la docena. Eso es mucho para los habitantes de este pueblo apartado." — Mary Hirscheld, "Cleveland Plain Dealer" (10 de abril de 1948).
- La foto, supuestamente de Herbert Johnson, es la Figura 10.1 en "Lake Chapala: a postcard history" (2022).
