12th La Feria del Hongo in Senguio, Michoacan, Mexico. Now with video!
    #11204874 - 10/08/09 02:06 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

We got there a couple days early so we could help with the sorting and naming of the mushrooms.

This is the space:

The lady in the middle is Aurelia, the main identifier for the fair.



The food tent:



Mushrooms began to arrive



These cars were loud



Mas setas



These were the vexing mushrooms.  Paxillus, Catathelasma, Pholiota, Rhodocollybia maculata, an interesting black Albatrellus and Hypomyces chrysospermus.  The chemicals are Melzer's reagent and 3% KOH.



This silhouette in this photograph is the legendary Cactu, photographing the mushrooms as they come in for processing.



Photographing the "interesting" table:



An Amanita from section Caesareae:



Sin comment



Here is a police officer, protecting the mushrooms.





Someone appointed her the of queen of the event





These cops are discussing their favorite mushrooms to eat

Déjà vu...in a very pleasant way :laugh:

I'd like to see a gill shot of the one in the white dress. Was there any way of getting a peek under the cap?

That one guy is the great Carlos and his camera is my old Canon A640 that I gave to Cactu.  Carlos is really cool and is the main organizer for the fair.  He knows everyone and runs everything.  He introduces us to all the cool people, takes us mushroom hunting and in the evenings (and some mornings) gives us tequila.  This year, every time I saw him he was trying to buy me mushroom food.  Everyone loves Carlos and he is usually unsuccessful in his attempt to pay for the food.  At the end of the fair Carlos went out and got me one of the massive fungus fair posters for my mycology room.

Perhaps next year.

Make sure you use the formal version of you (usted) when asking about that.


Here are some vendors selling mushroom food:



Shiitake tamales



More mushroom food vendors



Mexicans, enjoying mushroom food



Mushroom dinner at a mushroom themed room in a mushroom restaurant with Carlos, the queen of the mushroom fair, her friend, Cactu's boss (in the pink shirt).

Carlos tried to buy us dinner but the restaurant wouldn't take his money.



People from the town enjoying the mushroom display tables







This girl gets an A+ for her goofy grin



People signing the visitor log



Carlos and the president of the city invite me to return to Senguio and bring my friends any time.  Carlos promises tons of mushrooms, plenty of tequila and many girls.  (Its nice to meet someone who has their priorities straight)



The city government of Senguio gave Cactu and I letters of appreciation for being trusted identifiers for the fair.



These girls were real nice.



The fair had several forms of live entertainment.



We met this guy at the fair.  He turned out to be real cool and took us out mushroom hunting, with great success.



The fair had lots of informational speakers



With lots of celebrations and things of that nature



This guy is cool



This message was encoded using a vaguely effective encryption algorithm known locally as Inglés.



This kid was one of the alcohol vendors at the fair.  He was really cool, fun to hang out with and kept giving me free drinks.  Every time he appears in my photos, the photography gets a bit more erratic. 

On the left is a girl doing that "Mexican girl thing" where they look around a corner just enough to see you, but not enough so you can see them. 



The queen of the fair, her friend, and the mayor of Senguio.



Aurelia, the main identifier for the fair. 



Cactu and Aurelia having an urgent and heated discussion about mycology.



I spotted the mayor of Senguio drinking a beer and snapped this picture.  He gave me a hilarious embarrassed look just after the flash went off.



Cactu and some friends



The raging party after the fungus fair.



Me.



Our friend.  I can't remember if he was about to give us more beer or if he just had.  Definitely one of the two.



The party went late into the night.



And everyone was having lots of fun



This picture needs no words to describe it.  The guy on the right gave me an "oh crap" look when I snapped this pic, when I got home I realized the look was because he had his cell phone in his mouth. 



More celebrations



Mushroom graffiti was all over the town



This was my favorite
