While we were driving into Cajititlan, we could see a new development in the hills north of town.  It's pretty distinctive, so we drove through on our way back to Guadalajara.  It felt like such an odd mix of things.  The colors were so Mexican, but it looked a bit like an Israeli settlement.  Driving around inside felt like one of the self-contained communities outside large cities in the US, but also a bit like driving through a project. 

We stopped some of the residents and asked about living there.  They said an apartment is about 200,000 pesos, or around $15,000.  Not bad. The website for the community said it had all sorts of amenities, although we didn't see them all.  There were lots of apartments but also some small semi-attached homes.

I loved the laundry drying.
