We were invited to a party last night at a house high up on the mountain with a magnificent view. There were 70 to 100 people there in everything from jean and tee shirts to long dresses. The men are always more casual and that range was from jeans to dress slacks and shirts.
There was a fabulous buffet and two bars one for delicious wines and one for beer and liquor.
There were lots of tables and chairs to sit at inside and out and music rang out throughout the evening. The house had a fabulous gourmet kitchen with a long granite counter which offered the extensive array of delicious dishes to choose from and lovely open concept living and dining area and at least three bedrooms and several bathrooms with a covered outdoor terraza. All the finishings were high end.
There were a lot of people there that we had not seen for a while and it was great catching up with everyone. The mood was light and happy and everyone was having a wonderful and happy time with their friends.
It has been a while since we had attended such a gathering and we were delighted with the evening.
On the way home my husband told me that the party had been held in the casita and it was not the main house. I have not yet seen the main house and my husband had not seen the main house since the owners renovated it. I can only imagine what it is like. It must be truly amazing.
Only in our beautiful Ajijic, Lake Chapala could this amazing house we were in be the casita.
One of many truly wonderful things about Ajijic, Lake Chapala is the cost of living and the beautiful homes we can have at a fraction of the prices up north. We forget sometimes how very lucky we are.
