Cool sleeping weather has arrived! Last night it got so nipper we had to sleep under the sheets and turn the ceiling fan down. Brrr! Where's my chocolate caliente?

For many of us who live here December means family is coming to visit for the holidays. Día de Guadalupe on Dec. 12 is just around the corner, then the fiestas of las posadas begin on Dec. 16 and last until the 24th. Get ready for some festivities!

One word of caution. The other evening someone lit a skyrocket or some similar fireworks and it exploded right in front of our bedroom window at some ungodly hour of the morning. My instinct was to shoot the MF who lit it, but apparently they were in a car driving around because I could hear several more at intervals as they drove down different streets lighting them off with impunity thanks to the complete absence of anything resembling a functional police force. The sale of fireworks are supposed to be illegal, but since the local government isn't actually in charge pretty much all our laws are being ignored, and dangerous fireworks are currently for sale in our streets around the mercado municipal. Please do not buy fireworks, and please please please do not contract for pyrotechnical displays if you are having a wedding or other celebration. These have been all the rage for years now, but most locals are extremely tired of hearing anything that explodes. Unfortunately there are too many inconsiderate folks, including a few foreigners who think it's real cute to toss loud fireworks in the streets and beaches at night. A damn shame! And this will go on until several days after Año Nuevo until las vacaciones navideñas are over. Thank you for your comprehension.
