October 23, 2016, our beloved and emblematic "Malecón de Culiacán", dressed in pink ... today we are all "Pink Army", warriors of the heart in fight against cancer. Today we received the donations of cap-threads that we could see women cutting their beautiful ponytails, braids and manes ... to donate it for wigs. Each step, every kilometer, each beat served to increase donations, for this cause, to warriors who suffer from breast cancer. Each step, every kilometer, each beat served to increase donations, for this cause, to warriors who suffer from breast cancer. Thank you...Thank you very much ¡ To you that you are a brave and generous heart, for you that ran for your mother, your sister, your friend, your wife, your daughter, your grandmother, the women ... infinite thanks for your nobility and challenging spirit when you ran 3, 5 and 10 kilometers. We did it, we made it possible and today many women with breast cancer from Sinaloa will be helped. We did it, we made it possible and today many women with breast cancer from Sinaloa will be helped. Thanks to the team of organizers and sponsors who worked tirelessly; Thanks to our warriors, who have set the example of encouragement and hope; Thanks to those who took this cause personal and accompany their loved ones in hope. In Culiacan, we are supportive, hardworking and positive. This beautiful blue morning and with the first winds of the cool autumn that refuses to arrive, we have lived and breathed a festive atmosphere that embraces those who live and face the fight against an invisible enemy. Everything happened in order, in the early hours of this morning and with the sun still hidden, the fences, the arches of exit and finish, the stands of the sponsors ... the first aid area and the registration tables. The camouflage rose t-shirts were already invading Plaza 500, felt the freshness of the morning, or the dying of the night. Faces, mostly women, cheerful and somnolent perhaps; Faces that reflected the rigor of the dawn and the softness of hope; Faces of many faces, all young faces, of whom has hope, will, courage and nobility, regardless of age! They joined in silence and with order they were grouping and advancing towards the zone of heating, tens, hundreds to complete more than 1600 competitors of the Pink Army. The voices began to give instructions, the professional photographers and the spontaneous ones with their cell phone capturing already the first images of groups of friends, of couples, families, ́compadres ́ and employees of companies that concurred in the movement in favor of the warriors. At 7 o'clock, already with the first rays of the sun illuminating the vault of "blue hope", where knowing that you can and wanting to be can makes all the gathered there challenging the future with the heart remind us the music of Diego Torres ... hope color. It is time to start the warming up and there is no room for more the place is full, full and the notes of the music begin that is accompanied by choreography of this second edition of the Pink Army race. Today we miss Itzel Navidad, a warrior who left us only a few months ago, but we feel that her spirit of struggle and solidarity. Today we miss Itzel Navidad, a warrior who left us only a few months ago, but we feel that her spirit of struggle and solidarity is here, the one who accompanied us with so much energy to carry out the first edition and lead the group of dignified and strong warriors of our city that every day fight taking care of their health and receiving treatments. You did not leave Itzel because you left this seed that we see today in a pink tree of good wishes, where the participants left their messages of love for those who were today their inspiration to compete and to coexist. This emblematic pink tree was the frame that accompanied the beautiful bottom of the River Tamazula to witness the photographs you will see in this photo shoot through our photo gallery of Sinaloa360. The community of Culiacán came out to say, in peace, that if you can and that there is no one fighting in solitude because today we were one, with the same purpose, the same idea and purpose. The exit of the corridors began shortly after the joyful warm-up dance, of the choreography that hundreds danced. They went first, those who would have to walk 10 km, followed the 5 km, finally those who would walk or run 3 km. everything was camouflage pink shirts, accompanied by colorful strollers, tiny or large dogs and some other bicycle. They emphasized groups of small of diverse ages that from early age are involved in the activities of community, with the greater energy that excels at a young age. Thus came the first to the goal, for some it seemed that they had just left, for others, their faces reflected the struggles of effort. They were arriving, the photographs and videos in the goal; the delivery of medals of participation, applause and shouts ... then a hurried respite or a sigh of relaxation. All to recover lost liquids, to drink a drink with salts or natural ... all happy. The Culiacanenses are good people, hardworking people, enthusiastic, supportive, enterprising and in addition to big-hearted. Hugs between competitors or with the recipient, kisses and even support to continue the walk to a place to rest and recover. For more than an hour competitors were arriving. In the end the groups were concentrating near the pink tree to take the photograph of the memory, or inside the pink car. The Culiacanenses are good people, hardworking people, enthusiastic, supportive, enterprising and with great heart. Once again it was demonstrated that we embrace the common causes, which surround us with love and support for those who are vulnerable, those who suffer and those who struggle, thanks Culiacán, thank you families! Pink Army is a great movement that is just beginning, that is already in many hearts and that will continue in the fight against cancer. Today's sunrise in Culiacan was a different dawn, you could breathe and smell of hope. THANK YOU THANK YOU VERY MUCH! #PinkArmy # YoContraelCancer2016 Virtual Reality (VR) Images to see on mobile devices with virtual reality lenses Do not limit yourself to see the world: ¡ live it and enjoy it in virtual reality ! ¡ Subscribe ! Little Planet The spherical 360 photographs that make up this virtual tour are of great difficulty in its elaboration. When using an 8 mm lens, fisheye, to achieve the complete image requires four shots. It is performed the first, rotates the Nodal Ninja 90 degrees and the second shot is made, then rotating again 90 degrees are made the third and fourth take. So you can appreciate that day there was a very large number of people on the move, so when wanting to sew the images in PTGui, in each take the position of all was totally different. The only way to get a clean job that looks like a single shot, is to use Photoshop's PSB format and by using layers and masks and after a very detailed work, you can get a good result.
Culiacan, the first village of the Mexican Northwest, the capital of the State of Sinaloa, is located in the foothills of the Western Sierra Madre where the rivers Humaya and Tamazula give origin to the river that takes the name of the city. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." In that time, it gave birth to the territory that Culiacan occupies today, when the establishment Huey-Cualhuacán was established in the place that was a required stop for the Nahoas that were traveling to the Valley of Mexico. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." Already in the colonial times, the Spanish conqueror Nuño Beltrán, established on September 29th, 1531, the Town of San Miguel on the shores of the San Lorenzo River (close to Tabalá). But due to the constant attacks of the natives of the area, they had to move the establishment mentioned above to different places (several times), finally remaining located at the confluence of the rivers Humaya and Tamazula, a place that in present day is called Culiacán Rosales. During the XVI century, this town turned into the center of operations for the conquest, evangelization, and colonization of the North-East of the New Spain. In the following years, the location of this city and its booming population gave rise to the development of various economic activities. Such as livestock, agriculture, trade, among others; that in a whole forged the growth of this city and it was like this that on October 6th, 1821, after having changed its name to the village of Culiacan, independence was sworn in this town. On July 21st, 1823 it is given the category of city, to be separated by a decree of the Congress the provinces of Sinaloa and Sonora. A year later these areas are tightened to the definitely separate in 1830, where the City of Culiacan was declared the capital of the independent state of Sinaloa. Although in the times of Don Plácido Vega, the capital of the State moved to Mazatlan, in 1873 it is brought back to the definite form to Culiacan as the capital. Within the era of modern Mexico, this city had significant events that marked its independent history. Within which we can highlight the promulgation of the first constitution of Sinaloa in 1831 the publication of the first newspaper a year later, the start of the construction of the cathedral in 1842 and the creation of the House of the coin in 1846, among others. It is also worth highlighting the fact that Culiacan was the only city that did not fall into foreign hands at the time of the French invasion, thanks to the Hero Antonio Rosales, for which reason the official name of the city is Culiacan Rosales. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). In the modern times, around 1878, Culiacán counted with three town halls, one in the head with the same name, other in the Badiraguato town hall, and the third one in Quilá. Also, it was constituted like Municipality using the decree published on April 8th, 1915. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). It's economically active population is occupied principally in the sectors of services, agricultural, fishing and industrial. Culiacán, not only is the capital of the state of Sinaloa, but also the economically more competitive municipality of the state due to its productive infrastructure and offer of services; corresponding to little more than 30 % of the entire state industry. Virtual Reality (VR) Images to see on mobile devices with virtual reality lenses Do not limit yourself to see the world: ¡ live it and enjoy it in virtual reality ! ¡ Subscribe ! Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made The photographs that I took to make this virtual tour were taken in the first minutes of the dawn getting a pretty color of heaven and it is also when there is less contrast because the shadows are very soft. The greatest challenge is the limitation of the camera of the drone, for the images not to be triplicated or moved, the minimum speed that can be used is a quarter of a second; so I had to wait for the light conditions to be sufficient to achieve the correct exposure.
Every project that is recognized as great has its history, and the Country Club of Culiacán is no exception, and to talk about it we must go back to 1955, the year in which the first efforts are made by Emilio Senac and Oscar Felix to gather friends who would like to play golf. The first group meets to practice this sport in a makeshift camp located in the colonia Chapultepec. The first group meets for the practice of this sport in an improvised field located in the colony Chapultepec. The following year, the growing number of players made the facilities inadequate and “Lomas de Culiacan Golf Club” was founded, on land donated by Don Ricardo Aguilar Figueroa. In the mid-1960s, and due to the real demand from golf players, as well as the fact that the mound lands became insufficient, the idea was to build a golf course that could satisfy all the needs of those who were passionate about this sport. The dreams of the pioneers crystallized on January 20, 1966, date in which the Country Club of Culiacan S.A. of C.V. was opened, in the lands where it is currently located. The dreams of the pioneers crystallized on January 20, 1966, date in which the Country Club of Culiacan S.A. of C.V. was opened, in the lands where it is currently located. The accomplishment of this project is thanks to the ability, will and effort of people such as: Adolfo Clouthier, Mario Tamayo, Alfonso Zaragoza, Miguel Angel Suarez, Arnoldo Murillo, Luis Flores Sarmiento, Adolfo Esquer, Jaime Peña Batiz, Alvaro Acosta, Hector Buelna Aviles, Víctor Manuel Corella, Gilberto Maytorena, Jose Félix Ceceña, Benjamín J. López, Emilio Senac, Rafael Yhip Palacios, Óscar Lelevier Bátiz and Jorge Chávez Castro. The golf course "The Iguanas" is a beautiful 18-hole course, with Putting Green and a practice tee, and other services such as carts and golf equipment, carts in the field, as well as a golf sports shop, where you can find everything you need for your personal golf equipment, with a schedule of: 6:00 AM At 8:00 PM In the Country Club tennis area there are several courts: 2 clay courts, a stadium court, 6 laykold courts and a tennis shop where you can purchase any accessories to practice tennis. The courts have the conditions and pleasant climate to practice this type of sport with a schedule of: 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. “The Iguanario” is an ecological place where there are different types of animals, mainly iguanas, since in Country Club they are of vital importance to the sports club because it is the symbol that identifies it in the golf course "The Iguanas". For the conservation of this species, “Iguanario” has a schedule: 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made One Sunday morning, after a day of intense rain, I was at the golf course of the Country Club of Culiacan, taking 360 spherical photos to elaborate this virtual tour. I really liked the colors of the landscape, all the trees and plants were still wet and a pleasant aroma was all over the place. Luckily it was not raining and I was able to fly with the Phantom 3 drone. Perhaps the biggest problem you have to face when shooting with this type of drones is that the lens diaphragm is fixed at f / 2.8 and you cannot make images as with a DSLR camera.
La Primavera, or The Spring (season)in English, is a satellite city of the city of Culiacan, planned in full with a long term vision. La Primavera Urban Development. Its origins have three major events: ONE: In 1968 the 74th Irrigation District, on the right bank of the San Lorenzo River, was inaugurated, which included the work of the San Lorenzo Canal and La Primavera Dam, as part of the Northwest Hydraulic System (PLINO for its acronym in Spanish) to carry water through canals, by gravity, from the watersheds of southern Sinaloa to the north. There is more water on the south, less suitable soil for irrigation; in contrast, in the north, there is less water and more land. When a duct had to go through a depression of the land, it was more economical to build a dam, to form a lake serving as a bridge. Thus, many lakes emerged, La Primavera being one amongst them. TWO: In 1993, under Salinas’ government, the 27th article of the Constitution, which includes the Agrarian Reform Law, was amended, and the communal land holders were given the option of assuming full ownership of their lands, making them private and being able to sell them. That is how a series of seven communities offered their plots and we were able to acquire them; without this change, La Primavera would not exist. THREE: By chance, we came across two great urban planners: Bill Philips and Michael Doty, who became interested, got to know the place thoroughly and provided us with a brilliant project, which was then awarded, on an international competition, the first place on a regional competition for the Pacific valley. It is an area of approximately 1977 acres, which surrounds the 667 acres of La Primavera Lake; everything is inside a concrete perimeter wall and is surrounded by fast roads, which allow the people not going to La Primavera to pass by its side. What does La Primavera consist of ? It is an area of approximately 1977 acres, which surrounds the 667 acres of La Primavera Lake; everything is inside a concrete perimeter wall and is surrounded by fast roads, which allow the people not going to La Primavera to pass by its side. There is a network of fast routes inside, like a free-way type of road (economic) which allows cars to move without stopping, without traffic lights, from one side to the other, without passing in front of the houses. Next come the neighborhoods with built-in fences, a house entrance watchtower, with narrow streets, and curves that prevent high-speed traffic. Each neighborhood has its own construction rules, and in the neighborhood’s best area there is a clubhouse with a swimming pool and sports courts, for the exercise and leisure of condominium owners. Moreover, they also have a small shopping center with their basic necessities. Inside there are 26 streams, only two having a small flow of water, the others only when it rains; these were extended, the riverbed was paved, trees were planted and they have a corridor that goes from the lake to the perimeter wall, along with a 10 meter wide zone around the lake, from its shoulder, reserved as common areas, as well as having an asphalt or concrete road. Together, they form a pedestrian road, to be used by foot, bicycle, skateboard, motorcycle, or horse, everything is allowed. This huge network integrates all the neighborhoods and we can go from one to the next without crossing any street. The lake itself was modified; 3 million cubic meters of soil were moved so that the lots facing the lake had a slope suitable for boat navigation. At the same time two large inhabited islands and six smaller ones, for birds and trees, were made. All counted, there are 15 kilometers of water front. The main destination points have direct access to the water, and it is possible to navigate on wave runners, power and sail boats, kayak, from one of these destinations to the next. That is how the three networks are integrated: vehicles on land, people and water. More than 150,000 trees have been planted, watered by drip or pipe irrigation systems, they are all are registered by their three coordinates on the blueprints. A fundamental part of the project is afforestation, more than 150,000 trees have been planted, watered by drip or pipe irrigation systems, they are all registered by their three coordinates in the blueprints. Side streets have uniform and medium sized trees whereas palm and bigger trees were planted alongside the main roads, streams, lake banks, parks, and clubhouses. In Culiacan to enjoy the outdoor areas it’s necessary to: Be in a safe environment where there are no robberies or kidnappings on days and nights. Have pleasant spaces, walkways, sports courts, water... Ample shade, ventilation. And be accessible by walking from the front of your house. Fauna: Since before, many animals inhabited here, and with the large afforestation, now there are a lot more. A Belgian photographer took pictures of 90 different birds and a digital archive exists. Some of those birds were migratory. There are fish, such as carp, tilapia, catfish, and bass. As well as, iguanas, rabbits, hares, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, toads, deer, wild cats, coyotes, crocodiles, etc. There are fish, such as carp, tilapia, catfish, and bass. As well as, iguanas, rabbits, hares, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, toads, deer, wild cats, coyotes, crocodiles, etc. People who exercises, walking or riding a bike, can often admire a variety of animals. Within the project, industrial areas are planned. Every day, more than 4,000 people go into factories, office and commercial businesses for work., about 8,000 people work here (2016) providing services to the condominium owners so they do not require to go outside. In addition, the corporate offices of the most important companies are located here. A golf course, with 9 holes built, was developed on the most suitable terrain, allowing thousands of homes to have the most beautiful green areas on their sight. The houses are built to the liking of each family. The first family arrived in 2000, and in 2016 it was inhabited by more than a thousand families. There is a construction and land use regulation that provides certain harmony. There are no outside billboards, most of the houses do not have fences, allowing the enjoyment of the architecture and the houses’ gardens. We have two schools of the highest level covering from kindergarten to high school, many children and youngsters go on foot, on bicycle or motorcycle, to their classes, and there is an environment that promotes the great human values, sports and family coexistence. Lots and house sales are not promoted by mass media, they are realized only through invitation and new people are accepted by a committee. Growth is little by little. Why does La Primavera exist? We can say that everybody’s dream is to live in a safe and pleasant environment, with all the correct services, in a great freedom and harmony between neighbors, with the city of Culiacan and nature. While modern cities are prone to acts of violence, robberies, kidnappings, traffic problems, pollution, etc., La Primavera provides an alternative that solves most of the problems of the cities. It is likely, that with the passage of time, today’s cities will have more problems and that over time, each year that passes, La Primavera is made into a better place to live. The difference will increase. Little can be seen of the positive effect that this physical environment can have on the future of the families that live here, but we might be surprised. Only time will tell. Physical aspects: 1. Services built by La Primavera and that the condominium owners maintain and operate: Potable water Water for irrigation and a sprinkler system that operates every night. Sewage – Water treatment subcontracted to the city. Electricity–All underground transformers. Telephony of the highest quality. Natural gas network. CableTV. Peripheral electrical circuit with services and alarms. 4 meters concrete perimeter walls and 2 meter high fences around each neighborhood. 24 hours surveillance, video cameras, sensors. Very efficient rainwater sewage. A clubhouse in every neighborhood. Gardens and sports courts, green areas, maintained by the condominium. Night illumination,among others. 2. It turns out that living in La Primavera also have these benefits: 2 degrees cooler temperature. We use the air conditioner 2 months less in the year. Saving on electricity and water. The gardens are watered with non-potable water. Saving on sports club fees. Savings in reduction of vehicular theft (it does not happen), of houses (it happens but only in a few cases). A house,for most families, is the principal asset and the normal thing in the city is that, in time, it loses its value, this does not happen in La Primavera, because of the respect to the use of the land norm. Everyone makes life more outdoors; healthier, better quality of life.

We began the elaboration of aerial spherical photography with images from one of the most beautiful places in Culiacan... La Primavera... After an intense process of learning the photography technique imparted by the Colombian photographer Mario Carvajal, and a very professional training in the handing of a Phantom 3 drone imparted by the professional drone pilot Esteban Verdugo Urrecha, we installed on our web site, a new section where we will show places of interest of Sinaloa and outside of Sinaloa with a different point of view...

The corridors of the hospital may seem like endless kilometers for a child that hurts for every step they stopped giving because of the ravages of chemotherapy. They are steps that can become memories and anecdotes thanks to the steps and tracks that others have decided to make for a noble cause. The race 19VA Ganac - ITESM is a support of the families of Culiacan for children with cancer. In November of 1996, the founders of Ganac together with the enthusiasm and support of teachers and students of Tecnologico of Monterrey began with what has become a tradition over time; a race that year after year adds more people who enjoy family day with all its members, including their pets, which like their owners, put the shirts on. Virtual Reality (VR) Virtual reality images for virtual reality glasses viewing in mobile devices There are no limits to see the world: live the experience by yourself in virtual reality ! Join us ! Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made Major events such as the race Ganac - ITESM is the same as previous organizations. It’s good to know all the activities that will be developed. When, where and how. This way it can be estimated what is interesting to photograph, if you have photographic equipment necessary and if there are possibilities of witnessing the chosen activities. There is no need to carry overweight accessories. Many times you'll find yourself surrounded by hundreds of people, like in my case in the Isla de Oraba, where it will be almost impossible that you can move easily. Just take a pair of lenses and turn on your creative soul. What lenses? On the one hand, it depends on the nature of the event. On the other hand, some that best suit the way you see. If you like close details, think short optical, and if your view is always thinking of distant points, then lean for telephoto lenses. You may at times, miss lenses that you decided not to bring, but on many other occasions you'll be happy with the decision, especially when you're working lightly. This time I used a Sigma 8mm for spherical photograph and a Nikkor 24-70 f / 1.8 for a flat photograph. A suitcase or backpack is also important: think of one that will allow you take photographs easily but will not be annoying for people. The smaller and lighter, the better.
The still young city of Los Mochis, rises proudly as a real gem of the northwest of Mexico. “Mochim” plural of “Mochic” which translates from the cahitan language as “Tortuga de tierra” (land turtle) o “Mochi” name of a plant which abounded in the zone in which it now settles. Doña (Mrs) María Ochoa, daughter of Don (Mr) Zacarias Ochoa who got to meet and deal with Benjamin F. Jhonston, founder of the sugar mill that gave life to the population, testified (and there’s still an original map of that date who´s copy is in “La Casa del Centenario”) that the name had a simpler origin: “Los Mochos”, a nearby ranch, it was called like that because the founder of that family was missing one arm, and the settlers who lived in the socialist colony of Owen, degenerated the term, because of their foreignism they pronounced it “Los Mochis” until finally it remained as: “Los Mochis”. Hail beautiful lady of Valle del Fuerte! Beyond the linguistic paternity of the name, the population who gave its first hesitant steps around the chimneys of the sugar factory, was destined to be called the progressive and beautiful city in which it has become, being among the first in great life quality and of the most progressive of the Mexican Republic. Gone forever are the muddy streets during rainy season and big dust storms during winter. Nevermore will the “black rain” of soot from the chimneys and cane burning from the nearby fields will be seen it. The heavy creaking of the bogies where carries were made from the place of cutting to the mills of the factory. Nevermore will wagons be pulled by trucks and tractors lifting dust storms and children running after them from the settlements and small towns to steal the sweet and juicy sugar canes that were spilled on the sides giving free treats for the poor. Goodbye forever to the pitched and melancholic whistle that marked the life of the mochitenses between great gulps of steam thrown by the big black chimneys always covered in soot. Finally, the factory that stamped agonizingly in the last harvests, ceased to exist. Ironically the city that started out joyous at the beginning of the last century, eventually drowned it and the changes of progress annihilated it. But like the Phoenix, from those black ashes has emerged a new creation! An extraordinary turning point has been opened between nostalgia and tradition. The community of homes made of wood, huts made of mud, two traffic lights by the main street which were subject of admiration by the locals of that time, has had the extraordinary metamorphosis of the silkworm and a butterfly has sprouted that flutters beautifully in the green valley. Today it opens its arms to the brothers of Mexico and the world that arrive by air, sea and land. Today it gets ready to tell everyone, that it is a worthy and beautiful city with all the comforts and services. ¨Come! ¨ She says proudly and self-satisfied. ¨Come! Everyone is welcomed¨ Meanwhile the ones who are here, from the bottom of our hearts and with the most sense of respect and the most intimate gratitude we say to you: Hail to Los Mochis! Hail beatiful lady of Valle del Fuerte!

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Thanks to Hotel Best Wester from Los Mochis for the facilities that help us to elaborate this tour. The night photograph at that altitude is complicated on account of the wind, even if it is really light, the camera can move and the quality will no longer be acceptable. Because of this the diaphragm can’t be closed too much and the ISO has to be higher to get an appropriate shutter speed.
This photograph corresponds to Hambreton (Hungerthon in English) 2015, annual fundraising event of the Culiacan Food Bank where the goal set to surpass this year was possible, with the total raised being 67,413 kg (14,8620.22 lbs.) of nonperishable food, and in which 70 educational institutions and 30 companies from Culiacan participated. History In Sinaloa, in 1999, on the initiative of Ricardo Bon, Alberto Coppel, Allan Sullivan, Luis Amarante and Martha Echavarria, the Culiacan Food Bank emerges, which, in 2003, becomes a Private Assistant Institution, to address famine problems around Culiacan and Navolato, Sinaloa. In1967, in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. Jhon Van Engel created the first Food Bank of the World; there are currently Food Banks throughout the United States as well as in several countries in Europa and Asia. In Mexico, the concept of the Food Bank emerged in 1991 due to the concern of a Sinaloa inhabitant, born in Culiacan, named Ricardo Bon Echeverria. The project arose one day in which he observed that the tenants of the Abastos Market in Guadalajara, Jalisco were dwindling and throwing away, day after day, a great amount of food which was no longer marketable but still edible, when he had found on more than one occasion that there were many people asking for food aid at that same location. The first Food Bank officially appeared in 1991 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, although some similar institutions already existed in 1989 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and Saltillo, Coahuila, which did not have the name Food Bank but practically carried the same work that a Food Bank would. One by one they appeared in the whole country until completing what up to 2015 were 61 Food Banks, each of them emerging from the Private Initiative. Currently, the Culiacan Food Bank is presided over by Federico Bazua Lopez and directed by Arturo Torres Santillan.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this virtual tour was made When spherical photography is done in groups of people, it is important to do the 4 shots the fastest possible at a high speed to avoid that, with the movement, PTGui cannot perform the photo stitching or the images come out incomplete or duplicated. This tour took place at noon and the white canvas tent helped as a diffusor for the light, which is why there are no hard shadows. It was a nice experience to see the enthusiasm of this group of volunteers who worked intensively on this important event, “Hambreton 2015”. The Culiacan Food Bank is an example of how, when we as citizens join forces, we can attain great achievements for the benefit of our community.
