Pinal Villa posada

For the last few years a local English speaking church, San Patricio by the Sea, of Melaque has put on an after Christmas posada for the school kids of Pinal Villa. Well at least they hold it in front of the school with every kid within miles showing up including the migrant workers kids. A lot of fun and a very nice thing for the church to do.

I was just cleaning my lot after a week of construction when one of the neighbors told me it would start at 11am so had to check it out. I ran into Blogger Steve who is a member of the church and a few neighbors I hadn't seen for awhile.

Usually when I've watched a piñata party the pinata comes apart completely with one final wack but this time 5-6 kids would knock a few candies out before the final blow. The rules, this time, were that the few goodies were supposed to be for the person with the stick. Of course it was impossible to keep the surrounding crowd away from anything that landed on the ground. Fun mayhem

I love these neighborhood events. I seem to miss them if they occur in Villa Obregon.

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.
