The alameda looks really good. There are still a few locked doors, but the streets are clean and people are milling around and sitting on the benches around the alameda.
The street food vendors are open again and the smells of carne asada and grilled onions fill the air. The bus station has returned to its original location.
There was a tour bus in town today. I did not see the people, but a huge bus was here, outside the Palacio.
The Palacio was full of families this afternoon. They were in line for something, I'm not sure what it was, but they seemed upbeat and the children seemed happy.
There are a lot of people everywhere.
This is very good stuff.
If you did not know about Norbert, you might not see anything wrong here.
However, the arroyos are still being dozed, the water is still running. The Chalaton barrio, which is several blocks behind our casa, is finally being worked on. Trucks carrying loads of debris have been coming out of the Chalaton all day long. Supplies are still being distributed. A lot of work needs to be done.
We did not do any work around here yesterday.
Instead, we went to the beach at Huatabampito.
It was very peaceful, very relaxing. We just walked along the sand, listening to the waves crash, gathering seashells, just doing our own thing....very relaxing after the craziness of the last 2 weeks.
Half of our favorite beach restaurant's (El Mirador) outdoor seating was missing, but they were serving food and we had a great lunch. Then, after walking the beach some more, we headed home to Alamos.........
