Friday 4th March 2011…..unexpected good things!!!

I was in a small cafe down town this morning saying goodbye to Robin, the incredible coordinator for Casa Hogar and as we were getting ready to leave I hear drumming coming from outside and as i went to investigate this is what i saw blocking the road!!

I went to the Tourist office to find out what the celebration was and was told it was a celebration to honour a 16th century hero El Senor de la Conquista..it was a wonderful sight to see this huge square so alive with colour, history and passion…only in Mexico!!!

I received a call this morning from Guy, the owner of the house and sad to say he is not feeling good again and they have cancelled their flight to return home on Sunday.  He is going to go and have more tests so Linda and Guy I wish you all the best….

Spent a lazy afternoon out in the sun then evening went back into town and the celebrations were still going on.

In all my years coming to Mexico tonight was the best celebration I have ever seen…so much colour, music, vibrant and happy people….gotta Love Mexico!!!

I then went to the theatre again tonight for another play…it was about love for the over 60’s…..not that I am in that age bracket!!!!
