In todays Mexico News. It looks as if Zihu's beautification project has a cousin to the north. HAHA, and we thought something was wrong in our neighborhood. Rob, you and the writer of this article need to share a bottle or two with one another....I will buy if I can sit in on the conversation.

Fabulous!!! Maybe 25 years ago we watched them remove a number of concrete street lamp poles in the same location. How did they do it???? Use a hammer to break up the concrete around the base of the pole, then use a hack saw blade to cut through the rebar inside. Just the blade, not mounted in a handle. Then leave the stump sticking up and move on to the next one. The next year the stumps were still sticking up out of the sidewalk.

I'd love to meet the writer. Great story! I wrote him and thanked him and commented on our local remodelación. If we ever get together you're invited, amigo. ;-)

¿Por qué no? Me encantan las palmeras. Sólo hay que tener cuidado por los cocos asesinos. B-)
