El Quelite

January 2016 - El Quelite

I can't get enough of this town no matter how many times we visit. It is a most charming destination near Mazatlán. Named after the milkweed that grows throughout the area, the colonial village hasn’t changed too much over the years.

A statue dedicated to the game of ulama, an ancient Aztec game.

We went on Sunday and it was packed, even had to wait for a table so we took a stroll.
Just a warning that this post is in photo overload!

Talk about cock of the walk!!

Outside the restaurant, hoping to get a rider.

This is a private chapel at the back of a home.

Back at the restaurant as we waited for our table.

Our server.


 Carol and I wandered around to where the ladies were making the tortillas.

John's face was priceless when he sat in these rockers and realized how far back they rock.

Some shops outside the restaurant.

These nuns had dined in the restaurant and asked John to take a group photo, so I got one as well!

Back in the car we stopped hoping for some chicharrones, fried pig skin. But alas it was not to be, he was stirring up pork instead.

Oh well, had to settle for some jamoncillo also known as Mexican fudge, these bite-sized caramel pieces are made by cooking down leche de bronco (unpasteurized cow’s milk) with brown sugar.
