Big waves everywhere

I saw this on the Facebook Cihuatlan page but there are large waves along the whole west coast of Mexico it seems. La Manzanilla is reporting large waves where they are usually very small. Yesterday in Melaque it looked like some beach tables were in danger.  I'll be in Barra a in few hours to see how the beach is doing.

Puerto Escondido where it's always large

And then there is always

History of Beisbol in Cihuatlan

It seems  a shame with the long history of Baseball in the area that when locals attempt to create a league for youngsters it falls flat and never goes anywhere. Five to six local teams were all outfitted with donations from up north but that was not enough to keep people interested. Back in 2008 I went to the Cihuatlan sports field with the Melaque team and their opponents never showed up. Oh well, soccer is alive and well.

Festival Sabores y Sonidos again

I don't go to many events and I had totally forgotten about this one. I expected the road trip to  Tequesquitlan with Glen to take up more of the day but we ended up back in Barra at 3:30-4. While walking around looking for a good salad at a reasonable price we could hear the music start up on the Plaza. Basically the food portion of the festival was a Mole competition. Each booth had chips and mole.

Lots of people. You had to buy a ticket to try the professional mole or a beer .... but it was a fundraiser so that made sense and all the money went in one direction. Lots of groups of girls dancing on stage but by the time we finished looking at all the food booths they finished and the Chido Rivera Band was on stage.

Nice layout

Chido Rivera Band - really pretty good
