 Of the 120 homes included in the "Ruta del Color", 37 facades have already been painted. The 20 murals included in this federal project will be added two weeks after the facades are finished, representing some of the history of this unique, beautiful island. This will create a new tourism corridor along Paseo de las Aves in colonia La Gloria. The homeowners were allowed to chose the colors they preferred.

        The lobster catching season continues until the end of this month, then there is a four-month break until it resumes on July first.


 FRIDAY, Feb 3--

The weather is beautiful this morning, but the forecast shows a "Norte", Cold Front #28, is likely to affect our weather over the weekend. The red dots indicate the front becoming stationary, then it's expected to dissipate on the Monday map. This official forecast predicts Q Roo may have up to 2-3 inches rain today & tomorrow, 1-2 inches on Sunday and up to an inch on Monday.


 Unfortunately, a young motorcyclist lost his life early Thursday morning when his vehicle impacted a concrete electrical post on prolongacion Aeropuerto (Jesus Martinez Ross Ave) across from the airfield control tower. The victim had no vital signs when the Red Cross paramedics arrived, and the cause of the accident is unknown. Our condolences to their family and friends.

 Thursday was World Wetland's Day when we're reminded to respect and take care of these ecosystems which are a source of life and habitat for many aquatic species.

  Thursday was also "Dia de la Tamaliza", when Mexicans share tamales with their friends and families, provided by those who found a baby-figurine in their King's cake on Dia de los Reyes (Jan. 6). Feb. 2nd is known as Dia de Candalaria, when Catholics bring candles to the church to be blessed and commemorate when Mary brought Jesus to the temple for the first time.
