Day of the Crazies IV



I do not really do parades, but I am a whole lot less cynical about them than I used to be. Sunday we did not attend the parade proper. We did, however, walk along the street where the parade was forming up. I will close out my over-reporting on Día de los Locos with a few snapshots from that walk.

My own favorite snapshot of the day.





The clean-up ladies brought up the rear.









La Mexicana's special, jim dandy, hand-painted Dia de los Locos tennis shoes.











Probably the best way to watch the parade, sitting outside on a box in the shade watching the television inside with a couple of cold liters standing by.
