The Marc Anthony Concert at El Cielo

In the year and a half I have published this blog no event has sparked the interest in Valle de Guadalupe than last Saturday's Marc Anthony's concert. So, congratulations to El Cielo for putting on what by all accounts was a great concert and for exposing so many new people to the beauty and wonders of Valle de Guadalupe.

This article was posted in 2013, but its suggestions are solid.

On a side note,  I'm not sure what is going on with's seo, because search engines do not surface their posts very often.  Which is a shame because it has a lot to offer.
