Yes, another post about food! However, this was actually just an excuse for a quick bike ride to check out the tire. There has been no loss of air so the nail did not go all the way through, which is a good thing. Eric will pick up a replacement tire when we are in the States.
We haven’t been to El Quelite this year as Eric had gone there in December and the main road was under construction. Not suitable for the bike.
They are cutting hay and Eric said it looks like vetch or pea vine. The soil is very good here, probably old river bottom so the crops grow really well. I’d be a bit concerned about the clouds overhead….at home when we cut hay that would have been a warning sign.
These two young “snoggers” were my lunch time entertainment! I was facing their way and they were hard at it all the time we were having lunch except for a short break to check their cell phone! I wonder if her Momma knows where she is? Yes I do remember being young but here in Mexico young, old and in between love is always on display.
While we had lunch this caballero went by on his beautiful horse. There were also many, many huge stock trailers, some pulled by semi-trucks heading down the road. Some with cattle and some with horses….what’s going on?
We asked the owner/manager and he made a motion like twirling a lariat. A huge three day rodeo with contestants from Los Mochis, Culiacan and other areas. A big event. Added to that is a two day band event and you have a five day Benito Juarez birthday holiday bash. Ah……I don’t think we’ll attend. For starters there is no where to park.
A lovely day.
I did check the internet to see what I could find out about the rodeo in El Quelite but it seems to be a big secret as I couldn’t find a word about it anywhere.
