More from Sonora, Mexico: Quince Time, A Classic Printing Press, and the Singing Beekeeper

Each fall brings the quince harvest (membrillo) in northern Sonora. Membrillo is perhaps the state's official fruit. The Magdalena baseball team is even named the Membrilleros. Check out this video of a family in San Ignacio making the cajeta de membrillo (quince jelly bricks):
Check out this historic machinery still in use at a print business in Magdalena de Kino, Sonora!

And listen to Freddie Terry, the singing beekeeper from Oracle, AZ, perform his original music about Sonora to the folks at the Asilo San Antonio in Magdalena (community home for seniors and those with disabilities)
 and here's Freddie performing at Magdalena's first Festival of Books held in November 2015
