Our New Home

Lots of activities for everyone.  In the past 6 weeks there have been the work done on gardening, a forensic workshop for fingerprinting and one for making gifts for moms and children as each day is celebrated. FORENSIC WORKSHOP This was a fingerprinting session presented by Malu who has her degree in Forensic Studies and enjoys teaching the kids. I wonder how many budding CSI’s are in the group. Gardening-Canches Our kids are learning quickly about their abilities to plan, act and now water and watch their gardens (canches). Each team has a day to come to the house and check, water and weed their particular bed. Workshops for kids and moms to make gifts for Mother’s Day, Children’s Day and many special occasions.

I am continuing to show interesting articles about Yucatan and Mexico. These stories talk about covid status, changes in Progreso, education and other interesting information. MERIDA.– Unlike the neighboring state of Quintana Roo, where social mobility restrictions have again been tightened and economic activities restricted due to an increase in Covid-19 infections, in Yucatan the measures taken by the state government have been firm and constant, which has prevented the overflow of hospital services and allowed a controlled economic and social reopening. After the announcement by the governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín González, of five new restrictive measures in the face of what he called a “not encouraging outlook”, Quintana Roo residents will have to return to a partial confinement that includes closing avenues, supervision of schedules and capacity, suspension of social gatherings and entry and exit restrictions at business events, competitions or congresses. Failure to comply with these measures could lead to the imposition of fines and closures and, if the situation worsens, return to the red light, which would imply the total closure of activities. In Yucatan, on the other hand, a very different and encouraging panorama is observed, since the measures that were taken in terms of restrictions on working hours, vehicular mobility and transit in some areas of the center, as well as the mandatory and correct use of face masks and hygiene, keep the state on a yellow traffic light and with ample freedom for the activities of the Yucatecans. Added to this is the great responsibility and seriousness with which citizens have behaved, respecting all the indications given by state and health...
