Explanation:
Should be spelled "maMpostería".

A very common, skilled, trade in Mexico-- My son learned it while living with us in a village there back in the '80s, from the many stone masons in the village. A very handy skill for him to acquire: he put in a nice two-tiered terrace in our garden for us.

Of course...I should have caught the misspelling. I knew something was weird!

Thanks a lot.
