The Fiesta of our Lady of La Paz in Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico

It's so great to be back here, and not just for the weather (84 degrees today) or the food, but for the spirit of the people. With a fiesta going on in town, you get to see hundreds of locals having fun. And one thing that has always touched me about the people here are their sweet dispositions and their obvious love of family and friends. In the four times I've been here, I've yet to hear a cross word, or see anyone angry. They take life as it comes. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live here as an of those overtanned, coupon clipping 50-60-70 year old honkies you see on the margins and meet once in a while on the street returning from the markets.
