ABC Wednesday - J is for J (Mexican)

IT is Time once again for ABC Wednesday - the focus this week is J.

I returned Sunday from a lovely week's holiday in Mexico and I thought last night that their letter J would be a good focal point for this week's challenge.

There is quite a difference between how we say our J and their pronunciation - more like an H.
Names like - Javier and Jesus; jalepeno peppers.
Also, we visited the state of Jalisco on the west coast of Mexico. We stayed with a friend in Neuvo Vallarta and did lots of swimming, touring and some shopping. I loved the beaches and flowers, trees and skies. I must have taken well over a thousand pictures!

(Here are a few to enjoy.)

I missed last week's focal letter and saw the perfect I - an iguana!

Be sure to visit the other great participants here.

I always enjoyed Mexico and its people. Your photos are exquisite and make me yearn for a trip to the south.

My one and only trip to Mexico was in 1988. It was down the west coast a couple hours south of the US border. It was beautiful.
