< Tamalli-El Sabor Del Buen Tamal >
Tamalli is a small chain of high quality tamal takeouts in Mexico City. These are really something special, although the place looks like a "plastic" chain franchise. We visited the one at Avenida Campeche, Colonia Roma. Well worth a visit.
< Casas Abandonadas Cerca de Pátzcuaro >
Mysterious abandoned two storey dwellings, on a quiet road to the muelles on Lago Pátzcuaro.
< Lago Pátzcuaro Drives >
Scenes from a drive around Lago Pátzcuaro, with emphasis on a stop at Restaurante Sandio y Cabañas.
Updated on May 9, 2006, displaying a few shots from the northeastern arm of the lake. The unpaved road to Tzintzuntzan, often as much as 200 feet above the lake, is undergoing improvements. The area is served by colectivos which link the fishing settlements scattered along the shore.
UPDATE: the road is now completely paved.

< Cuanajo Feria >
The walk from La Vitela to Cuanajo was a favorite of ours when we lived out in Quercus, on the road to Santa Clara de Cobre.
The town itself would not be attractive to visitors if it were not for the many mueblerías (furniture workshops and stores.) We briefly visited Cuanajo during its Fiesta Patronal in September, 2006. This was fun, although the feria was not in full swing yet. There were some irresistible fair foods.

< Tiendas de Abarrotes >
Mexico's small "Mamá y Papá" 'corner' stores are everywhere. (Sometimes found in the middle of the block as well). La tienda Don Chucho is popular for its large and varied selection, somehow packed into a small space.
< Mescalería >
This traditional mescalería is located at Oponguio, along the northern shore of Lake Pátzcuaro. It is open to the public. Free samples are provided by the genial owner.
Both tequila and mescal are made.
