Trip to little town of Malpica

On Friday we took a day trip to Malpica and Copala. About 100 miles round trip. There were a bunch of us that went. Three cars with four people each. CONVOY! Had to laugh I told every one the toll was 51 pesos - which it was a couple of weeks ago when we went. On Friday it was 54 pesos. Malpica is about half way between start and finish. 
Malpica is a small town of about 600 people. We go there to visit the bakery and the tile maker and to visit friends there. 
Here is the dash cam video of driving into and out of Malpica. To view in full screen click here. 
The cobblestones make a really bumpy ride. 

Going through the arch. I waited too late to get a good picture. 
A new big building is going up. No idea what it will be. Looks too big to just be a home. 
Always colorful homes and buildings. They have painted their gate white with gold trim. 
I like the pink trim on this home. 
Parked so we could all explore the town. Another new building going up right across the street from the bakery. 
This time I didn't go into the bakery so no pictures from me. But if you haven't seen it before click here to read Nancy's blog. She took a lot of good pictures. 
And yet another new home. The town is seeing quite a bit of growth. 
Oop "mother in law"finish. Just the front plastered and painted. 
A lavender home. 
Old home with grass and weed roof. All the walls were still standing, so maybe it could be livable with a little TLC.
Walking around the main street. The mural on the community building. 

They have torn the gazebo down. Hope they plan on rebuilding it some day. 
We went back to see Jorge the tile maker, but he was in Mazatlan on business. His son was there to show how the tiles were made, but he was a little shy about what he was doing. Some of the tiles for sale. 
A really pretty flowering plant. 
On the way out of town, a horse by the road. 
If this is the first time you've heard about Malpica use the search bar on the side to find the many blogs I've written about it before.
