Centro de Salud and a new Muebleria

The Melaque Centro de Salud is moving along once again. Looks like the structure is finsihed and just painting and finishing touches left to go. Doors, windows and fixtures are not cheap so there may be more financial delays.

According to neighbors the last picture is of a new Muebleria that I get the feeling will be upscale. Pretty strange building style. It's located a few doors off the plaza behind OXXO.  The new Secondaria is also moving along with second floor construction almost ready to begin. No bricks, solid cement walls with a very strong foundation.

Quinceañera on the beach in Melaque

We were at Sirenitas Saturday and this is the setup they had next door. The music system they were testing could not be ignored so I went over to see what was up. I took a video but the "music" overpowered my IPhone speakers so not worth posting. Not the largest Quinceañera I've seen but was as fancy as any.

I warned people on our local message board that they might be in for a very loud night but reports were that it was not all that bad

New Secondaria construction

Stopped by to check out the new school construction and they are sinking pilings for the foundation. The holes are 6 meters deep with a large 'tube' of re-bar down the middle later to be filled with cement. The old play field was over a meter higher than the old school but they have added another meter of crushed rock on top of that to avoid any chance of flooding. Much more work to go but they haven't stopped for the last month. Hope the money hold out.
