Berta, plus the heavy rainstorm right before I left Chacala, and two more while I was gone, have worked their magic. Everything that was dry, and brown, and dead looking is now green and lush and starting to blossom. The hummingbirds are going crazy. It's like a different town again.
Aurora has three rentals, part of the Techo de Mexico program.
The poor visitors to Chacala during the tourist season (Christmas to Easter) never know what the "real" Chacala looks like.
