These guapos were selling flowers at the tianguis today, and I bought a bouquet of haliconias and ginger flowers for 80 pesos.
Isaac (on the right) is 19 years old, the son of Ruebčn, who was a teacher at the Primary School here in La Manz for over 30 years. Rubčn is retired now, and these flowers are grown locally on his portrero. Isaac (pronounced ee-ZACK) is going to school in Prepa in nearby Miguel Hidalgo.
On the left is Jose Armando, whose father is Armando the fontanero. Jose will turn 19 in a few days. He was enrolled in a 'feeder' school for the Chivas soccer team in Guadalajara, but only got as far as the third tier. He decided to come back and finish his education instead.
