Naughty Angel

I walked back to the cemetery this morning. No matter how many times I go I always find something I haven't seen before. Today it was the naughty angel sneaking a smoke.

Things are beginning to pick up. The big water truck was there to keep water in the tanks inside the cemetery so that visitors have a place to get water for their flowers. So were the little boys with buckets who are out to earn a few pesos when they help carry water to the grave. The flower and food vendors are putting up tarps and tents and moving in. A lot of families were cleaning and repainting. And some were starting to bring flowers. I can't wait to see how the cemetery looks tomorrow.

This is a very interesting photo. I agree you never know what you will find.

What a great shot, Billie. It's a great photo description of Mexico: some things about the country and it's people are so pure and innocent, yet sometimes unexpectedly crude and always proud!
