On Christmas Eve after dark when cab prices go up, I hailed a cab to take me to the fiesta at my adopted Mexican family,s home. As we were talking he knew the family very well. I handed him 50 pesos and he gave me back 20. I said, oh no, it,s more in the evening! He insisted that for me, being part of his friend,s family it was only 30. I insisted back, the 20 was for his children for Christmas! Ok, he accepted it.

Another thing..I sometimes go alone to a beach other than Madera. What to do with my stuff while I swim? I look around for a nice family group and ask them would they kindly watch my bag while I swim? This always works well and they often ask me to join them. Reward: new friends!

Obviously, I love the generous, honest and kind Mexican people! That is my No. 1 reason I spend 6 months here every year! Vive Mexico !!
