The Pueblo Magico ceremonies happened. But they were interrupted for 10 minutes by sudden rain shower. Everyone was preparing to move into the teatro and then the rain stopped, people reassembled and the show went on. Good show too. Displayed the cultural heritage of Todos Santos rather well. We’ll post photos tomorrow. The party still goes on as I type.
Bad side of the story is that you can’t get to the otro lado right now. It must have rained a LOT more in the mountains because the arroyos are running full. You cannot leave Todos Santos to the north (La Paz) as the Las Quintas arroyo is too high. You can’t get across the huerta either. Calle Manguito might be passable now or if not, in less than an hour. No news on whether you can get to Pescadero or not. It really didn’t rain much right here in Todos Santos but that shows how much more important the rain in the mountains is when it comes to arroyos flooding.
Okay, I couldn’t help it – here’s a photo…
Starting on the right, we have the president of La Paz county, the governor of Baja California Sur, the federal secretary of tourism and the state secretary of tourism. This was taken after the rain shower.
