Delivery to your door - Only in Mexico?

In Mexico we are enjoying an experience I have never had before - it's that everything comes to you eventually! Everything comes down your street being announced with various calls, horns, whistles, or songs.

First we have the regulars: the water bottle guys come every second day - the garbage man is pretty well every day - corn is offered in a cup with cream every night - and the man with gas tanks comes twice a week.

Periodically we can also add to the list that the fruit truck comes by with whatever is in season (watermelon, oranges, mangoes, mandarins, pineapple, papaya) - the knife sharpener will whistle down the road, you are offered bread and empanadas, hammocks, clothing, plants and even the services of a photographer.

Pretty cool eh? Gotta go as I hear the fruit truck with it sounds like pineapples today.

Enjoy the Adventure! Suzanne

P.S. My book: Only in Mexico You Say? The Humorous Side of Living in Mexico is available now on my site http://www.onlyinmexicoyousay.com
