Mother's Day in Mexico

Wednesday, May 10, 2006 | 1 comment

In Mexico, Mother's Day is always celebrated on the 10th of May. So in the afternoon we went to the house of Esme's mother. I took our new digital camera, a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 with us.

Outside our house, which actually is the top apartment of a building that looks like a small castle, I took a picture of "our" street. You can see the little castle to the left of the street. And the window of our apartment is visible.

Behind the house of Esme's mother there is a stone wall. Her mom has several orchids growing on pieces of wood attached to this wall and some had flowers. So when Esme was helping her mother out in the kitchen, I decided to take some photos of those flowers and plants.

The place is quite damp, so excellent for orchids. Esme's mother has also other plants growing there and some had flowers.

After a few more pictures I went back inside to celebrate Mother's Day.

In the evening when I wanted to turn on the light in the kitchen, I suddenly saw something big running away. At first I thought it was a big cockroach, but then I saw it was a house gecko. Last year a house gecko also came into the house, and it has been living on the roof ever since I captured and probably scared it so I could take a few pictures. But I guess the animal was back again in our house, doing a good job: eating small insects.

By the time I had my digital camera ready, it climbed up the hood of the kitchen, back outside.
