Escuinapa, Sinaloa: Town of Bicycles

Who says Sinaloa is all drug cartels and violence? In Escuinapa, a town of 30,000 located about 50 miles to the south of Mazatlan, bicycles and mongos are a big part of local culture, and by the looks of it, it seems like a really nice town.

Bicycles, in particular, are such an important part of Escuinapa’s identity that they even have a monument and a festival dedicated to it there.

Read more about Escuinapa and other parts of Sinaloa at former LA Times reporter Sam Quiñones’ blog. According to him, this video is one of his first attempts at digital storytelling. Not bad. Check out his YouTube channel to see more videos.

ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

xx

WAIT I LOVE THIS. AND I LOVE THAT BOOKSTORE. I WAS THERE LAST TIME I WAS IN LA.

For most Black people, the definition of progress is college educated Blacks being drafted by the White social order to be used as a bourgeois buffer zone against the masses of Black people.
