War Zone

Nothing to do with the rumble and not a war zone but that is what it has sounded like since 5:00 AM. We have had fireworks, rockets and church bells from every church in the city in honor of the Virgen de Guadalupe. Actually, we had a one round of noise at midnight and then relative quiet until early this morning. I'm not complaining. It is one of the things that reminds me that I'm in Mexico.

Today are lots of events and processions honoring the Virgen (yes I know that isn't the way you spell virgin in the USA but this is THE Mexican Virgen.) I'll report what I see and hopefully have some pictures to accompany the post.
