Folklorico Fiesta del Mar

I don't get out much with the house work but did quit a little early yesterday and ran into this Folklorico dance on the big stage on the plaza in Melaque. The weekend is coming and we only work half day Saturday and not on Sunday so maybe I'll get to see more of the festivities.

Motorcycle stunt riding in Melaque

I'm cheating with the photo which is from the motorcycle rally last year in Jocotepec. However there was a similar riding exhibition just off the Melaque plaza early this evening with a group of transit police from Guadalajara. This event marked the opening of the 'Festival del Mar' which starts tomorrow.

One of Elke's photos of the actual event.  Not sure they look more stable.

Comida Japonesa

Same family that runs the Japanese restaurant on the highway but are open until 7pm rather than closing around 5pm like the other store. Some have said the same menu but I don't think so. Last night had yakisoba that was great with thin noodles, not the fat ones, and lots of veggies. Can't wait to try a few other things I saw.

It's located in the Melaque central market

Pinal Villa school for migrant kids

Nice video of the migrant school project in Pinal Villa

Children, who work all day in the fields near Melaque, Mexico, go to school for a couple of hours in the evening. They are driven to and from the school by John LaPointe. In this clip, musician Miguel visits the kids to sing and teach guitar.
