Cicadas - Rainbirds - Chicharras

The Cicada or Rainbird song is something most of us in Mexico are familiar with about this time of year. They crawl out of their hibernation holes not long before the rains and begin the song that some say is calling for the rain to come. There are a number of Chicharra festivals around Mexico this time of year anticipating the rain and it's no coincidence these are music festivals


So the Cicadas (Chicharras) sing in El Limon Jalisco in May, inviting people to come to the hill to bring pitayas.


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.
