We have friends that come down to visit and sometimes I hear that there is not enough stuff to do in Patzcuaro and the surrounding environs.
Are you kidding me?
I guess it depends on what you like to do.
These people are the ones that snow ski during the winter, water ski during the summer, hike and trek across land and then run in some kind of marathon or other mass group grope. They are the ones that bring their bicycle anywhere they go, unless they bring their golf clubs and tennis rackets…..
They would not appreciate a 500 year old building or a leisurely stroll through markets, streets and art museums.
Or sitting around the plaza , sipping on a coffee, talking, watching and listening…..
They want to water ski in
That’s what’s missing in Patzcuaro. We don’t have water skiing, we don’t have organized fishing party boats, we don’t even have a sunset cruise with a band playing and people barfing over the side of the boat.
We also don’t have endless rows of bars and discos blaring music and noise 23 hours a day.
We don’t have motocross tacks or municipal swimming pools with synchronized swimming classes.
The biggest thing we have is a converted truck that looks like a stogy version of a San Francisco cable car , or at least what their perception of what the car looks like, that unsuspecting visitors pay 10 pesos to sit in and get schlep around town gawking at tourist destination and people exhibits living in their natural habitat.
