Viva la Revolucion
16 November 2009 | Downtown Guaymas
Today, Monday, I had the pleasure of watching a huge parade in Guaymas with all the residents from the southern portion of the state of Sonora. At least it seemed that way with the crowds. It's Revolution Day and their pride sure shows by how they turned out for this. It started with the Navy and then every secondary and prep school was involved. I looked at how some schools let their young girls dress for the event and all I can say is that it's The Culture. I want to say more but will bite my tongue...... After the parade I went over to the downtown Mercado and bought a cup of soft ice cream, then went over to this taco stand inside the mercado and bought a large root beer and made a root beer float. Root beer is almost unheard of in Mexico and you should see the looks I got from the locals as I proceeding to mix the two together. It sure hit the spot and wrapped a day of just goofing off. Gabriella would be proud of me.
