Canada Day & 4th of July at Lake Chapala

July 1, 2011

Hi Everyone, Well it's that time of the year again. The time of the year here at Lake Chapala when the Canadian and American communities join forces to celebrate our National Identities together.

The Mexicans love a party and celebrations and they help us to enjoy our special days as well.

One of the coolest things about our wonderful area is the blend of cultures from all over the world.

Being from Texas I had never met anyone from Canada before I moved to Lake Chapala many years ago. Now, I not only have many Canadian and American friends, as well as friends from all over the world.

The team of Exclusive Buyers' Only Realtors itself reflects our muticulture view of life here. Judy Martin and I are from the U.S.A. and Barbara Garding and Deanne Barber are from Canada.

One of the things that almost all of us here share is the ability to laugh at ourselves and accept our host country's culture, even when we don't fully understand it.

They in turn accept us, even though they too sometimes struggle to understand why we are the way we are.

I sincerely hope that you and yours have a wonderful special day as you celebrate your own National Heritage.

Now, enjoy the two videos below that poke a little fun at both Canada and the U.S.A.
