Football games, Carnaval and Church

Well – plans are made to be changed. As of right now we don’t have any plans. Except, we have decided to pay for another month here in Mazatlan – until Feb. 22nd.  What we MIGHT do is take the car and do some traveling south. Stopping in Aticama, Guadalajara and going to Guanajuato. Seem strange to stay in hotels. Just in the talking about stage now. 
Haven’t done much the last few days. Sunday morning we went to Torres for a late breakfast. The restaurant was all set up for the football games. Lots of Seattle fans there. 
We left just as the games started and watched them at home in Spanish. Boy the Colts got whooped! And the weather was unbelievable.
And wouldn’t you know the sunsets the last few nights have been really pretty. From the campground Sunday night.
Monday we pretty much stayed home until late afternoon when we took Janet and Ron to drop off their car. But going down the Malecón we see that the decorations for Carnaval are starting to go up.

Their car at the painters. They are going to get a cute toad painted on the hood. The painter is more of an artist than a painter. The truck I posted a picture of with the flames was done by him. Can’t wait to see the finished product.
Then we had some time to waste before meeting friends for dinner at Fat Fish. So we found the church we visited four years ago. Here is the blog post about it then. Worth checking out. Saint Marys of the Americas is the name of the church.
Over the past four years so much has been finished. The outer area where the classrooms are.
Inside. The statues of the countries saints are in place now with flags of each country in the Americas.  And all the windows are completed.

This is just outside the front door. Gold leafed 3-D plaques. So pretty.
Then yesterday we spent at home except for a quick trip to the grocery store.
