A Little Girl’s Birthday in Mexico

I had so much fun at this birthday party, watching the proceedings and savoring the joy that only children exude when they are excited. Jade is the daughter of Nora & Beto, a couple I have known for many years in Progreso. Beto and I share a birthday and a few years I have been lucky enough to share a celebration with Beto starting Nora’s home made flan!!!

This is Jades’s birthday though and as a nod to Covid and during the time when folks thought we had it on the run (pre-omicron) with vaccines etc. a face to face almost normal party was held in her honour.

Nora hired a couple of young men you ”do” kids birthdays, bringing music (loud), lights, games, prizes, and decorations. Momma has only to shop up. What a great idea. The kids are entertained and kept busy though out, right up until the piñata is smashed and the cake is eaten.

I love to travel, solo or together with friends. I’m writing this blog in part to remind myself of where I’ve been and what I’ve enjoyed about this wonderful world of ours, and in part I hope to help other travellers by sharing my experiences. I’m happy to be contacted for further information and appreciate your following my blog.
