Day 1 of The Virgin of Guadalupe Festival

 

 

The cohetes (bottle rockets) are going off in rapid succession–one every few seconds—and my headache is accelerating at the same rate. As soon as I had  typed this, however, the bells started tolling, and in the minutes since they have stopped,  there hasn’t been a rocket going off.

Oops. Spoke too soon. It was just a brief intermission. Viva Mexico. Viva la Virgin!  There are 12 more days of her celebration.
