Pan American Games

The Pan American games were held in Guadalajara in 2011.  The water sports, wake boarding, single skiing and the ski jump, were held at a little lagoon 2 miles from our home in San Nicolas.  Our friend J. C. bought tickets to the finals scheduled for October, 2011.  The cost was only 5 dollars each.  What a bargain!  Only a handful of Gringos attended this event.  Oh well, we still cheered on the Americans.  USA, USA, USA.  The photo above is the wakeboarding event.

Look toward the empty bleachers and you'll see the jumper.
They had numerous booths for refreshments and souvenirs.

Tight security for these sporting events.

More government troops equals more security.  They really don't like to be photographed.
