Villa Obregon WiFi Zone

I'd heard a few weeks ago that the Villa Obregon plaza was a WiFi Zone but someone just posted this picture of the sign on the Delegación of Villa Obregón office.  Just means I don't know if the signal will reach the plaza.

Big surf from Hurricane Marie

Didn't catch the biggest but these are much bigger than normal. I saw one set just as we walked up that was starting to break half way out in the bay.   Actually saw someone surfing in Barra for the first time in a long time.

Too far out for skim boarding

Down a ways a few try now and then

Baptize a puddle near you

Baptized as Laguna Los Pericos

"Baptism" of pools in San Patricio-Melaque

It seems a joke to baptize a puddle as "Laguna Los Pericos" but in the delegation of San Patricio Melaque-some residents are tired of flooding in their homes and commercial establishments.

Juárez street, an area with puddles is already known as a lagoon, but the worst is the latent risk that storm storm hundreds of families who suffer the authorities require a permanent solution to the flooding problem.

The previous weekend, the municipal government of Cihuatlán allocated resources to repair and maintain three pumps operating in the stream connecting carcamo El Pedregal, however flooding is still present on the main avenues of this delegation. (August 22, 2014)

Inexpensive Consultorio

I used one of these in Mazatlan on my first trip south while I recovered in a cheap motel for a week. The one there was a Farmacia Similares where the doctor had a small office off to the side of "his" farmacy. His consulting fee is only 25-40 pesos and then you go next door and spend 80-100+ in the pharmacy. 

Lorena went to this one on Ramon Corona the other day and was told she needed a blood analysis. We checked with the laboratory near Dentista Woo and the cost was $350 pesos. With her Seguro Popular ID she goes next door to Centro de Salud and is referred to a free laboratory near the "Happy Cow" on Benito Juarez. Today she'll pick up the lab results and go back to the doctor above.  I assume he will prescribe something from his pharmacy.

Waterpark and Picnic Sunday

The kids have been dying to go to the water park all summer vacation but we've been using my pool or going to the beach.  Finally someone suggested last Sunday, the day before school starts. We threw a bunch of sandwich stuff together and a cooler with Coke and beer and off we went.  Arriving later than usual there were no areas open near the kids pool so we setup by the deep pools and water slides.  Turned out to be a nice spot except we got bombed on occasion by falling mangoes.
