It's that time of year again
Dropping of my wife this afternoon for her hair appointment, I noticed the workers setting up again for the big event of the year.
The big tents and awnings where sitting on the ground, ready to be hoisted by Mexican-man power.
No power equipment or mechanical assisted winches or pulleys allowed. Once the have the canvas stretched onto the metal frame they call the crew over and about 10 of these guys simply lift it while another bunch stick the side poles up and into the frames..
That's how it's done........period.
Our little Patzcuaro is the town where hoards of people dissent, unabashed to bring needed pesos into little Patzcuaro.
Bringing tourist dollars and filling up all the local hotels and B&B's.
Perfect time to stock up on stuff and hide out for a week or so. Stay away from the crowds, I say.
I noticed a few days ago the sugar vendors had set up shop under the arches on several of the buildings on the Big Plaza.
Can't have too much sugar for all the kiddies and adults you know.
Nothing like chomping down on a sugar skull and crossbones for a motivational sugar high. eat the sugar today, get the diabetes going sooner.
Wash it down with Coca Cola, Mexico is one of the few places that still uses real sugar, none of that corn syrup stuff.
Maybe I will snap a photo or two of the sugar junkies before the town fills up.
