After school activities


The foto is Friday after school 7:30pm +/-.   Just a few minutes before there were about 50 Secondary school kids in the middle of this road.   The reason the road is empty is because 2 motor cycle police and the pickup had just swooped in to break it up and they did.   The Quad couldn't escape as fast but he was the taxi for a few more kids wanting to watch the melee. 

Same thing happened Thursday evening as we passed by on our way to Pinal Villa but no police.  The combatants seem to be girls in these two cases and another closer to school a few weeks ago (street fight).   Guess someone reported this and the cops were waiting.   Better ways to spend your time kids ????

Roosters asks for equal treatment


Restaurant owners of Rooster, located in the municipal delegation of San Patricio-Melaque are asking local authorities  for equal treatment from the department of Padrón and Licenses.

They note that on Wednesday April 9, at approximately noon, arrived at the restaurant four identified as employees of the Municipality of Cihuatlán department of Register and Licenses, requiring removal of tables and chairs with umbrella from the street along with the likeness of a "Catrina".

They stated that the municipal employees acted arrogant when criticized for the notorious "inequality" in dealing with different businesses that also use the street and sidewalk as part of  their business.

"We just want to work," Roosters owner said, lamenting the  harassment of the municipal authority.

 Piden trato igualitario a Padrón y Licencias

Foggy Lagoon


Photo taken this morning by Bill Gilbert of Laguna del Tule.  Not just there or by the ocean because I couldn't two blocks in my neighborhood either.   Weather site said smoke but it's definitely a sign that the seasons are changing.   Still chilly at night but sun is powerful mid-day.  Maybe ocean temperature changes are contributing.   Just hope it does not effect driving conditions as school vacation starts tomorrow with lots of people on the road.

Free Spay & Neuter Clinic - Melaque


Our group has been asked to collaborate with the Jalisco State Health Department in hosting a free Spay & Neuter Campaign in Melaque next week. The mobile surgical van will be located at the Melaque Jardín for 5 days. This will be the first time the mobile unit is in Melaque, and our goal is to attend 100 animals. We've been told that if it goes well we might be able to get them back here a couple times each year.


Please help us to promote this campaign. One of the most helpful things you can do is offer to assist your friends or neighbors in bringing their animals in for sterilization.
