October 2007

David Perez Leòn, an artist from Hermosillo (who some of you may know/remember from the meeting at Nicole’s house last year;  he paints on ceramic tiles, among other things) is having an exhibition/sale of his new works.

When:                 Friday 2nd November from 4pm onwards

Where:                 Residencial Versalles – this is towards the end of Colosio; go past the Los Lagos road, Villa de Parras and Salvatierra and it is on the right

David has lots of new pieces for sale and the most expensive is only MXP$350 so there might be some great finds for Christmas!


The Trunk or Treat last Saturday was a great success – the kids looked fantastic in their costumes (and some of the adults too…) and had a wonderful time running round, enjoying the clown show and collecting lots of candy from all the spooky trunks!

Here’s some photos from the event
