LOCAL 82ND ANNIVERSARY AND CARNAVAL CELEBRATIONS
Feb. 3, 2007, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
Hola everyone from San Felipe, Mexico, where the weather has been really nice for three days now. Today the thermometer on the bookstore balcony says 61 degrees and the humidity is 33 percent at 10:15 a.m.
There is very little wind at San Felipe right now so it is really delightful in the sun. The sky is blue with a slight haze and the view of the Baja mountains across the gunmetal-colored bay bay is fairly clear.
Of course, with the month of February starts the season of tons of activities at San Felipe.
This coming Monday, the day after Super Bowl Sunday, is the 82nd Anniversary of the city of San Felipe and the 90th anniversary of the Mexican Constitution of 1917, which is when the all important "Agrarian Act" was instituted in Mexico.
This is an extremely important holiday in Home since it celebrates the turning over of the country of Mexico to it's main, and working, population.
It is hard to believe that Carnaval is almost upon us, although I haven't yet seen any floats in progress at San Felipe.
This year Carnaval will run from the 16th to the 20th with the usual parades, dances, and street fairs, lots of people, lots of cerveza, and lots of music.
Until next week, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
