2 • June 2018 • UPBEAT TIMES, INC. My life is my message. ~ Mahatma Gandhi Chris Parr-Feldman of Sonoma County having fun in Mazatlan!
ABOUT: Mazatlán is a Nahuatl word meaning “place of deer.” The city was founded in 1531 by an army of Spaniards and indigenous settlers.By
the mid-19th century, a large group of immigrants arrived from Germany. Together, with the hard work of the Natives, they were able to develop Mazatlán into a thriving commercial seaport, importing equipment for the nearby gold and silver mines. It served as the capital of Sinaloa from 1859 to 1873. The German settlers also influenced the local music, banda, with some genres being an alteration of Bavarian folk music. The settlers also established the Pacifico Brewery on March 14, 1900.
SON, WHY DO YOU NEED A STEAK?
BECAUSE MY PLANT IS HUNGRY!
First Up Upbeat in Mazatlan! Upbeat in Apulia, Italy!
Ron Yamato of Sonoma, having an Upbeat Time!
ABOUT: The man above is standing in front of a typical trulli house, the characteristic cone-roofed houses of Alberobello, Apulia, in Italy. There are about 1600 of these structures in Alberobello, and hundreds more scattered throughout the region. Ron, being a DIYer, was amazed to see that the roofs were composed of limestone slabs and didn’t ap- pear to use any mortar. The walls are thick to support the weight, thus keeping the interior cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Folks still live in these structures, but many are abandoned or have been converted into tourist accommodations and souvenir shops. Whatever they are used for, they are “trulli” unique-looking structures (Ron “trulli” apologizes for that pun).
Publishers note: We do not accept a-Paul-ogies for those that share great puns! We hope you send us more! ~ PAD
