CELEBRATION FOR EL DIA DE LA REVOLUCION
Nov. 21, 2004, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
We are so so busy! In San Felipe, the weather is cooler today than it has been. We are at about 70 degrees in the air, with the water a little higher, and with low humidity. San Felipe bay is grey-blue and sparkly. This is the kind of weather everyone loves, just right during the day and wonderful sleeping at night.
Yesterday, of course was the big celebration for El Dia De La Revolucion, with the (seemingly) miles long parade involving most of the school children of San Felipe, and with 26 schools, believe me we are talking about A LOT of kids, plus the Marines and I think, the Army. Everyone was decked out in their utmost polished finery and two or three different bands and all the police cars and fire-trucks participated, sirens screaming, and there were cheerleaders performing HAIR-RAISING acrobatic feats.
As always, the great favorites were the very young kinder-kids dressed as miniature revolutionaries with toy shotguns and bandilleros and the little girls with "bebes" tied to their backs. It was quite a display, and somebody looked up the story of the revolution of 1910 and printed out a synopsis, so I finally know at least the basic story about Pancho Villa and Zapata, et. al. The Holidays are upon us! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and until next time, Vaya con Dios...from the book store by the bay.
