That Silly Senor

Hola!
Isn't she lovely?
She is a Japanese tourist. I called her sister and she said.......no, I am a japanese tourist...........I am from Japan......i speak english..........i speak very good english to you, yes...........i am a tourist..............and............i am selling you these bracelets.................
Before I could even blink she had ten bracelets clasped around my wrist. I started to say....wait a minute!
And she had ten more on me. She was very fast. I bought two for thirty pesos and she removed the rest as fast as she had put them on.
She had just stepped off the bus and I was the first person she saw. Then an Alamos 'sister' arrived, collected the Japanese tourist's bags. She waved and they were off.

I am thoroughly enjoying myself after the first full day of the music festival. There really are so many tourists, and there is so much activity; so much shopping, food and music. Yesterday Senor and I heard opera at the Alameda, a Mexican tenor who sang a song from each of Alfonso Tirado's concerts. After a stroll around the Alameda and carne asada for lunch, Senor claimed he was pooped out and went home to read while I went to the church to hear the accordian player from Canada.  The accordion was like a pipe organ, the music was classical and he played to a full church and standing ovations. I had no idea you could do that with an accoridan. Silly Senor, he was not really pooped, he just thought he was going to hear the polka. He was sorry he missed it

I am however very disappointed in my camera. I have out my manual and plan to check the problem  before we go out this morning. I took fifty two photos yesterday and only a handful are in focus. Now that is discouraging, but surely I can resolve the issue before Senor and I go to a picnic this morning, then to hear nortena music at the Alameda at noon and then, carne asada or sea food with friends at our favorite food stalls. He says he wants to hear the Latin America quartet at the church at two, then there is  a dinner party at five and the Plaza afterward.............bajajajaja and Senor claimed yesterday to be pooped. That silly Senor.

Sounds like fun.
As to your camera focus problem, are your batteries fully charged? I have had that problem in the past when the batteries were not quite done; but didn't have enough oomph to do much.

I like well played polka music. It just that everyone thinks they can play it.

Brenda I didn't know that. So the next time I'm getting poorly focused pictures I'm going to double-check the batteries. Thanks!

Thanks all of you for your great comments. I received an email from someone asking about why I deleted those comments in the previous posts. All 4 of them were spam. I have to have a pretty strong reason to delete something, so I did.
LOL, everyone who did not go to hear the accordian player sure regrets it now. I guess Senor was not alone, quite a few folks thought they were gonna hear the polka!!! Still, it was a packed church, so those 'SILLIES' may not have even been able to get inside!!

PS: I keep looking for the nun (from a distance) and I have yet to see her again. I would not want to get too close, she has too many jewels!!!

Hello, found your blog while looking for Docs in Mazatlan. Your renovation of the casa is really interesting. Especially the fact your living in it while working on it, no hot water?! I have to tell you I do love camping and I did once live in a house with my kids that had no running water or electricity for a month! Now that was something, had never thought you needed electricity to flush your toilet. My kids have said that month of living by candlelight and campfires every night was some of their most enjoyable memories. One other thing, do you not find driving across the mexican border the least bit dangerous? I've heard the border towns are areas you don't want to be. I look forward to more before and after pictues of your casa!
