Danza de los Pescadores - Veracruz

This is my favorite dance of the Primaria graduation ceremonies that was held last Tuesday here in Melaque. Next year, as the oldest and graduating class, these girls will be in uniform marching which is much less appealing to me.

I focused on the girls but there are also boys dressed as fisherman trying to catch fish in their net (bottom Foto). Girls are just prettier and Lesely was one of the 'fishermens wives' this year. We had to stop by the grocery store to buy fruit for her basket. Amazing what a hairdo and makeup do for these 13 year olds.

There are a few YouTube videos of this dance but nothing I found worth linking to. It's standard for many Baile folklórico groups around the country.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
