Posada in Colonia San Antonio

On Sunday night we followed a Posada from one of the Churches in the Centro to our neighborhood church. Mary, Joseph and and Angel were riding on a flatbed truck through the city followed by about 75 people carrying candles and singing. It was about 9:00 PM and I was downloading the images I had made of this posada when we heard singing in the street. I grabbed the camera and went out the door.

Down the street beside our house came Mary riding on a lop-earred old donkey, and angel with feathered wings and a Joseph with a goat-tee painted on. This neighborhood posada was followed by a very good group of musicians and singers and of course families holding candles.
