In the above photo, the crowds have opened up to give room to the band and the horse dancers.
The municipal workers, below, are wearing red on this day.
You can just barely see the arroyo flowing in the foreground of this photo. Lots and lots of families gathered along the arroyo for food and drinks. In the photo below you can see one of many foot bridges that have been built across the arroyos. This allows for foot traffic during the rainy season. You can see Bill in this photo. He and others on the foot bridge are watching a truck try to pull another truck out of the water.
This a fairly easily crossed section of the arroyo. Cars and trucks do not tend to get stuck here. It is where the water gathers momentum and rushes down (lower left) into the muddy bottom of the arroyo where trucks and cars get stuck. For many people, crossing the arroyo in their vehicle is the only way out of their barrio to get to town or the homes of other family members or friends.So, with this last photo I will say adios...and thanks to everyone who is still reading the blog.
Tomorrow I am going to catch you up on the things that have been happening here around the casa.........
