We spent the long weekend (it was a holiday here on Monday) in Malinalco, Mexico. We rented a house for two nights, and when not reading on the patio, we spent time exploring the local pyramid — picturesquely situated on a hill above town — and buying fresh produce at the market. We also explored an avenue south of town flanked with dozens of trout restaurants — they keep the fish in cages in the stream that runs by the street, and cook them up fresh for you.
A couple enjoys the view from one of the ancient pyramids perched above town.
A tree with pink blossoms stands over the town.
I take in the view (I have to force Brendan to take photos of me, otherwise I am absent from all trip photos.)

The house we rented for the weekend. The dog was in love with it, of course.

The garden is less than two years old. The owner told me there's a saying in lush Malinalco: If it doesn't grow, it's because you didn't plant it.
Our purchases from the town market. You don't want to know how cheap and delicious this produce is.
I am really tempted to try this -- the view must be incredible.
