So our dear friends and DH and I went out to a late lunch over to the next village to one of our favorite places. When we drove into the village we noticed all kinds of things going on...lots of booths being put up/ and rides and a stage and such. Anyway we had lunch and found out that the village was celebrating their patron saint for 9 days. Each village down here has a patron saint that they celebrate once a year for 9 days....so after lunch we wondered over to the fiesta and ended up drinking some beers and chatting/practicing our spanish. We of course were the only gringos there but we had a great time. We got there around 2pm and didn't leave until 10:30 and the party was just getting into full force. These Mexicans sure can party. We met many nice folks but had to call it quits....but I had had enough after 8 hours of fun.
Think I will make it a rest day today.
Hope all of my sparks buddies are doing just great.
Have a terrific week
