La Manzanilla Plaza Bandstand
Mexico

Looking out from inside the bandstand (kiosco) in the center of the main plaza (jardin), in the Pacific coast village of La Manzanilla in Jalisco state, Mexico. Taken during the middle of the rainy season (September), as seen in the green hillsides in the distance. The village church is east, and the Bay of Tenecatita is to the west. 

This beautiful bandstand features plaster sculptures of various sealife on all the support posts, and the roof has the form of a gaint clam shell.

This plaza is the scene of a popular annual fiesta from August 6-15 when the church celebrates its patron saint Maria Ascuncion with twice-daily processions, frequent loud skyrockets, and culminating with a fireworks tower (castillo) on the last evening.  Now the plaza is quiet again until the next fiesta.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
