March! Yes, synonymous with Spring and of course Spring Break… (note: Santa (Holy Week) comes in April this year so there’s still time to plan) Speaking of planning, get ready for June as tickets to the 2020 RCPM Circus Mexicus will go on sale this Saturday March 7th @ circusmexicus.net !
Here in Puerto Peñasco, all eyes, carefully washed hands, and covered coughs are on the international health scene and an increasing number of coronavirus cases worldwide (not reported in Sonora as of this writing). Shelves from Sam’s to local farmacias are restocking basic hygiene supplies, while radio ads are promoting various 20 second childhood rhymes to help with washing hands – yes, a full 20 seconds (the ABC song in English will do). So, stay healthy out there and keep enjoying all the beach, the sun, and sunsets have to offer! Let’s run down the weekend.
