I think that Zapata would have been surprised to see the REVOLUTION of weaponry over the years and would undoubtedly been delighted to have had these firearms during the Mexican REVOLUTIONS.

Great Car!

My kind of Car!

The owners of this car obviously own the "Forever Boutique" in both El Centro and Soriana, parked in the garage of their casa when I saw it.

I am back in St. Paul, and will stop posting for Mazatlán tomorrow.

 Earlier I introduced you to Susana,  a Mexican artist, who opened her house/studio to the house tour.  From her home in El Centro we visited 3 rather outstanding homes in El Cid in the Golden Zone.  I was most impressed 
with Señor and Señora's closets, a small section I have posted here.

Susana, Artist and Teacher

A few days ago I went on a house tour, which is always fun and well-organized, a benefit that gives financial help to many different groups.  One casa we visited is the home of Susana, located in Centro Histórico.  Even without a common language it was clear to me that this artist, who gives workshops, is a very special and vibrant woman.

Renovated House

Years ago when I last saw this house it was a dingy gray, the yard was filled with garbage, shutters were missing or broken so it was a great and pleasant surprise the see the wonderful renovation.

Tio's Shop

While walking down Constitutíon I stopped to talk to Tío Bruce who owns this auto/motor shop.  Interesting guy from South Dakota who found his home in Mazatlán about 13 years ago.  Unfotunately, my portrait of him did not turn out because of poor lighting.  But, what a shop with great colorful murals.

Strong, beautiful women!

About 10-12 years ago I met Susan and Jan who were instrumental in organizing volunteers to help animals in Mazatlán.  Their program to trap, neuter and release feral cats, for example has grown by leaps and bounds.  On Monday night I attended their well-organized annual benefit, BowWowMeow fundraiser,  to further assist the animals here.  A great time.  Great women!!
