Linzi and Pat took a shore excursion to work sites of Mazatlan, the small town of Malpica, and the colonial city of Concordia. Our first stop with our guide Maria was to a work site of a building tile factory. Our tour bus is in the background. Maria is showing how they make a kiln of wood and fire tiles to heat the tiles to make them strong.
After the clay is dug from the hill, it is pounded and mixed with water and poured into the wheelbarrow.
The tiles are ready to be formed into the mold and shaped into bricks the size that Maria is holding.
