Many individuals who sell items at local town markets (such as La Penita) stock up on what they resell. You can see lots of trucks fully loaded and heading out of Tonala heading back to other towns.
We went to Tonala with our friends, Fred and Sherry and stayed at the same motel we do each time we go. The Arana hotel's rooms are set up around a gated court yard where you can park your car outside your room. Very secure location and only a block from the main street where the market begins.
While we were gone, Hayley and Leo spent a few days at a nice Groomer/Boarder in Lo De Marcos. We've had them stay there before and know that they're in good hands while we're gone.
