Palm Sunday/Domingo de Ramos

You know we absolutely love living here in Mazatlán. Every day we learn something new or are surprised by something we hadn’t yet seen. Well, today is Palm Sunday. Entering mass this morning, the little plaza in front of the church was filled with vendors selling braided palm fronds. What a joyful surprise!


We are very much enjoying the noise, the screaming, the music, going on outside our front window. Lots of traffic, lots of people on the beach, hopefully means lots of money into our local economy. I trust that amidst the craziness of the Easter season you are able to reflect on and experience the holiness and sacredness as well.

  1. Hi thereI'm a Mazatleco that live in Cabos for work reasons. I find you're blog and I enjoyed every story you write in here. I like the point of view of an outsider coming to Mazatlan and start a new lifestyle like a "Mazatleco". I laugh a lot with you're story about The Soccer Season at ICO (by the way I study there secundaria and prepa) and the way you handle the problem with police when stop you by speeding at Olas Altas.Well I hope you really enjoy you're living in Mazatlan and I will be visiting you're blog for reading more of you're interesting story of the culture/lifestyle in "la perla del pacifico".
