Melaque's water pump broken

The broken pump is just letting water dump into the yard and road

Like most towns in Mexico water reservoirs are built on a nearby hill to create gravity pressure. Usually the water source is much lower than the reservoir so it has to be pumped up. The problem today is the pump is broken and they are letting the water run out in the road. In the past rather than having two pumps they can switch the pump has to be repaired.  We'll see this time if Melaque runs out of water and for how long.

Festival del Mar - November 26 - 30, 2014

Get ready for another week of Festival del Mar starting the 26th of November.  It should include a number of sporting events like volleyball, swimming, skim board and soccer. Also a sand castle competition and other artistic events around town.  Sadly this year's schedule is neither on the Festival del Mar web site or their Facebook page. Someone on Tomzap may run into more info.

Annual Melaque Plaza Dia de los Muertos

These should be available to view most of Thursday as they build them. All day Friday and into the evening as well. Most spectacular in the evening when when all the candles are lit. Years past the High School has done this and I think a Secondaria. This year it looks like CECYTEJ (technical school in Jaluco) has the honors.

For people that want to see the real thing in the area Panteon ... most decorations will be placed November 2nd.  The Panteon is out Highway 80 and you are welcome to visit. At night not advised.

Emissions testing in La Huerta

The place in Cihuatlan is closed and some have been going to Autlan which is a heck of a drive for a 15-20 minute test. La Huerta is much closer and a few have used Israel who is across the highway from the central Pemex up a half block or so. I'm sure asking locally would be productive.  Just heard that the cost is $450 pesos and Monday is Market (Tianguis) Day in La Huerta.
