Get ready for a crazy time. The Gringo King and Queen is just a small part of Carnaval because the whole community participates in the parade and parties or they turn out to watch. I also have no idea how the King and Queen get elected.
Amid a conversation on Tomzap about a new bakery in Melaque who makes mostly sweets and no French bread the owner of El Horno Frances in Barra reminded us that they have it. I bought a baguette there some time ago but never have seen a fat loaf of French bread. I'll check closer next time.
They are located at 25 Lopez de Legazpi which is next to the entrance to the Alondra Hotel pool.
