Postcard from Oaxaca, Mexico: Strolling after lunch

Encountered a lively little parade on our way back to our casita after lunch Saturday. Don’t think it had much to do with building hype for the Super Bowl.

And then, last night in our barrio, the fireworks started and tubas tooted about 9 with a rowdy group of sombreroed locals parading into town to set off castillos. Wasn’t fast enough to grab the camera and unsure of the occasion of that parade either. Perhaps honoring a saint’s day, or perhaps simply because it was Saturday night.

    Parade was to promoteTuesday’s Carnaval celebration in San Martín Tilcajete. Not sure what the fireworks were all about… Ya just never know! 😉
