With some 200  WYD pilgrims in the city to participate in World Youth Day (WYD), -Jan 22-27- the Mayor of Aguadulce has signed a decree banning dance activities and the sale of alcoholic beverages until January 30.

Those who flout the decree face fines of that  of $500 to $ 1,000 or its equivalent behind bars or performing community works The measure is aimed at canteens, bars, wineries, nightclubs, barbecues, restaurants, which maintain commercial registration enabled for the sale of liquors between meals, billiards, and casinos with liquor sales and all those premises with similar purposes.

The mayoral decree also orders the suspension of the permits for the celebration of activities with the sale of alcoholic beverages in the community.

So far for pre-=World Youth Day activities a little over 200 pilgrims from Poland, Slovenia, Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico are in the city, reports La Prensa.

The decree mentions the banning of “dance activities” so the visiting “pilgrims” could get hit with a fine for playing music and dancing to it. Which, as you say, this only leaves sex and drugs.

So, all the youth pilgrims will have to subsist on sex, drugs and music alone?

What a downer! The mayor must think its a Mormon event. Such a shame for the working girls who make a living at Aguadulce’s most famous attraction; the brothel Mocambo.
