Darts For Beer!

     "Darts for beer?!" I exclaimed.

     I had never seen anything like it.  It was the first booth I came to at the fair in Juchitan, Oaxaca, Mexico. Wanting to support the local economy, I had to try. My dear friend Josefina and I did very well. We each walked away with a six pack!

     Mexico is just different. Darts for beer would never happen at a county fair in the United States of America. But then a lot of things that happen in Mexico would never happen here. Thank goodness. There is so much to pray for in Mexico and other developing countries. Please join me in prayer and remember that there are many more good people than bad ones.

     Taking the good with the bad, beer as a prize may not be the best idea, but it sure made the bumper cars fun!


  1. Wahoo!!!!! I love it when there is fun along with the work. Wondering if the bumper car was safe, but what the heck you survived and the beer must have also. Darts for Beer, not a bad idea. Here's to the good people of Mexico, the bad guys in the world are such a horrible negative. Let's all push back starting right now. Love M

  2. I second the comment that drunk bumper cars doesn't seem safe. But then again, neither does standing up in the back of a truck careening down Mexican mountain highways and I think we've both done that one. Here's to all the good people in Mexico! (And a secret wish that Darts for Beer comes to the fair next year)
