Costalegre Rotary Chili Cookoff

Last Saturday was the Chili Cookoff for the local Rotary to raise funds for some of their projects. How much they raised and for what is still unknown but it was a fun party with music and performances from the Ballet Xalixco, the local Folklorico group. This was the most gringos I've seen in one place in Mexico.

I took the kids over and they were kind of bored except for the hot-dogs, pop and the dancers. Old time rock-n-roll didn't really do it for them. We bought Mari a 'cookoff' apron with red trim ... that ruined the wash a few days later when the color ran. I wonder if the Rotary fund can replace this Mexican famlies clothes (grin). Just and idea!
