TOWN CELEBRATES REVOLUTION OF 1910
Nov. 20, 2005, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico Town Report:
Hola everyone and VIVA MEXICO!...VIVA ZAPATA!...VIVA VILLA! It's The 20th of November, the day that all of Mexico celebrates the Great Revolution of 1910, and every school child in San Felipe is out in full regalia. The San Felipe parade marches by as I write this. It has been going on for over an hour and no end in sight. The costumes are wonderful, the ninos are adorable, the dancing enthusiastic if not in perfect precision, the music is traditional, and everyone at San Felipe seems to be having an excellent time.
I am trying to spot the kids I know but there are so many children involved in the festivities that it's almost impossible to single people out.
San Felipe weather for all this is absolutely perfect, 76 degrees on the balcony with the humidity at a nice 20 percent and a very slight breeze over whitecapped San Felipe bay. Skies are clear blue. It's sunny. In fact San Felipe weather has been wonderful for the last few days. It's finally Autumn in the desert. Have to stop and rejoin the excitement now. Until next week...vaya con Dios from the bookstore over the parade.
