Bells and Roosters

Day is breaking around 6am now and most mornings the temperature is right below 50 at that time.
I am still an early riser, but not ready to go out into the cold morning at 4:30am.

So I stay in bed for awhile and listen to the sounds around me. Depending upon the day there may still be a party happening and the sounds of the music float across town on the breeze, or maybe the lone bongo is playing far away in the distance, a dog barks next door, someone whistles softly out on the street, a horse goes clopping by. And if it is Sunday, the church bells call for mass and the roosters send messages to one another across the barrios.

I am glad that I am not the only early riser in Mexico, and in the mountains too...a tad colder, last night it was about 44, December will bring it down to the low to mid 30's that is when the fireplaces will be worth their weight....

The thing that alway amazes me is the chickens crow all night. We decided possibly because they roam around and don't really have a coop to call their own. The wanderers used to roost in our trees, drove the dogs crazy.
