First of all, it looks like we are dodging another storm bullet. Paul appears to be self-destructing and should bring some more rain but no destructive winds to our area. Gracias a dios!
And now for some photos from yesterday’s ceremonies…

The DIF Mariachis from La Paz.
There were other activities, more music and dance and free regional food and drinks served. There was a public dance but the band arrived late as the entrance to town from La Paz was not passable due to rains in the mountains. All in all it was a different kind of party, one with less intoxication and a lot more cultural value. Todos Santos showed its best side this night.
Lastly, DSL internet has been slow since last Wednesday. Depending on the time of day, the speed can be 1/20 to 1/2 of what we should be getting. Uploading these updates is a slow process.
