Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy.
I am constantly teased about being the "paparazzi" as I always have my camera at hand. And I certainly chose the new right shirt to wear for our adventures.
Well, today I finally had my chance. The Golden Years invited us out for the day beginning with breakfast in El Quelite. They picked us up at 9:15 and we drove to this quaint town. I will post the photos of the town and restaurant another time as this post is about being a paparazzi in Mexican politics.
Our "tour guide" decided to stop in the town of Puente El Quelite. This is a small town off the beaten path and four gringos certainly made an impression. Everyone was gathering around the bandstand so we parked to investigate. There was a truck full of serapes or blankets.
Since Bill can speak Spanish we learned that the congresswoman Paquis Corrales (link to her Facebook).
She is on the road promoting a plan to provide Mexicans with funds to renovate their homes. Many still do not have indoor bathrooms.
I will link up The Golden Years' recap as she will do a better job of explaining the program since she is married to Bill, our "tour guide"!
She was there to provide blankets and when we asked "porque" a senora replied "frio" meaning it gets cold...
Our photo op.
Who knew at this point that we would follow her to several more towns. Lots of fun down back dusty roads to places probably off the GPS.
