As usual, click on photos to enlarge.
It is nearly 1 a.m. and the celebration down the mountain in the village of San Juan Cosala has just begun. The saint day of the Virgin of Guadalupe is the biggest celebration of the year in this town. The church is filled with flowers, bottle rockets have been going off all evening, and a band is loudly playing in the town square. This will go on all night and all of tomorrow. The pieces above were all made by me over the years, other than the one on the bottom left side.
