Alfareros Trabajando en Tlaquepaque, Jalisco. Hand-painting pottery in Tlaquepaque, Mexico. 1.30.78 Gadalajara, we are enjoying the nice warm, dry, weather here. Have done some visiting and a lot of just plain loafing. Its so easy to get into the "siesta" habit. We'll be here until Feb 15th and will spend some time in Arizona before leaving for home. Wish you could all be here - Howard & Ruby Wright (various other initials are on card) | Personnel Section 2022 U.S. Post Office Portland, Oregon 97208 E.U.A.
