Mexico! I just got back from Mexico. Wow! Zeb the duck is now an international traveler.
We spent a few hours in Palomas, Mexico last weekend. Most of our purchases came from The Pink Store. Let me tell you about this store.
But first, Palomas, Mexico is a border town in the state of Chihuahua. It is across from Columbus, New Mexico, just south of Deming, New Mexico. We drove to the border, parked on the US side and walked into Mexico. So easy. The Pink Store was recommended to us, and this is why. The Pink Store is huge and has everything.
This skeleton lady was the first thing I saw.
A bit of a shock to me. Mom said that Mexico’s Day of the Dead is Nov 1 and Nov 2. The spirits of the deceased return and much celebrating occurs. I saw lots of skeleton displays.
Everything seemed so festive.
I was amazed and loved it all.
Mexico produces much pottery and hand blown glass and it is beautiful. These were displayed on a wall,
but many more are on shelves. Some of my favorites are the dolls made from cornhusks.
Perhaps a duck on the shelf enhances the display. I wanted to play with these piñatas.
Too bad I am not human.
We ate lunch at the Pancho Villa Restaurant in The Pink Store. Excellent food and service. So many choices. A man played music while we ate. He was nice, too. Near the restaurant was a large bar. Looking out the window at the The Pink Store Plaza I saw General Pershing and Pancho Villa shaking hands. I joined them in the handshake.
In the plaza this wooden door caught my attention.
The carving on this door was magnificent. Took lots of talent and time to carve this door.
Also love the peaceful feeling of a fountain.
I could have stayed all day at The Pink Store, discovering and shopping. Mom bought vanilla, Kahlua and some other souvenirs. Look at this site www.Palomasmexico.com to see more photos of the Pink Store. I will tell you more about Palomas soon.
