  1. The women I deal with have been making cooking ustansil for generation and they use atole, that is the traditional way to do it. They sell the unseal pots and you cn do whatever you want with them. As far as changing their traditons, good luck..

    One tey would have to order it from ;exico and then pay for the freight and  companies do not deliver in the village so it is not in the cards. No Amazon.com there.

  2. Interesting I remember the tiles you are talking about, they made them  20 years ago and the place that used to be by Telmex had them. I was fixing up the house then and I remember them.. They also had them in a store on Ninoes Heroes in Guadaljara.. They came from Dolores Hidalgo  .. I guess they all discontinued them. 

  3. Maincoon did you take your tiles to Mexico arte  or something like that n Riberas. They used to have the tiles you are talking about , Their tiles are made in Dolores Hidalgo and they have made tiles for me in the exact color I wanted which was differnt from the one they had in stock.


  4. The problem with old tiles is that the enamel had led and now everything is lead free. The bathrooms in my house are all old tiles and when I remodelled I gave up being able to match them and  mixed the new and the old.. The new tiles have more vivid colors not because they are new but because they are led free..

  5. Unfortunately for some areas we had Carnaval  where plenty of people mngled without any distancing or mask.. so we will see in a couple of weeks if that had any effect.

    I am really curious about it in Chiapas where indigenous do not wear masks and do not take care of themselves and in the cooler highlands, I believe there is very little covid  in the communities if any  but people are still dying of it in the low lands.. If no one is getting infected after the thousands of people mingled, they should check out why, herd immunity or other reason? Of course no one will investigate but there is something off in the communities in the Highlands, 

  6. do not worry, today is Carnaval and people have been partying like mad  without didtances or masks for 5 days.. If people in Chamula, Chiapas do not have more contagion they should send investigators to find out why they are inmune...

    Yes very litlle testing.. Over the last year my sister was tested 5 times .. here  NADA


  7. I know many girls who are not 18 and eloped to the house of the boyfriend and get married after they get 18 or when the boyfriend has more money. I was just invited to the wedding of a friend who is 38 and has been with her huband since she was 14.. He was 24.. They just got married, have 3 children  and no more planned.  Her oldest boy is 21 and has one chld after 3 years of living with his wife.  So less children bit in indigenous areas girls elope  at a very young age.and then get married but do not have a child every year like their grandmother did.

  8.  I said that because it is useless to discuss what would be better. They will do what they will do no matter what we think or do. I have lived here a long time so and learn about patiience dealing with the government down in Chiapas so no problem. I just feel sorry for the people who do not speak Spanish.. Hopefully when they call people  they may make a note  or have people who speak English on the next call...you never know..

  9. or who ever has to work with other people.. Anyone working out in the public has the same or should have the same worry.  So many people need to get protected that it is not that easy to make up the priorities.. There are different priorities in different countries and that is the way it is .. nothing is perfect and really no one really knows..  Future will tell who was right..
