Sunday Dancers

Sunday was a day of dance in the Jardin.  From the gazebo at the center of this town's meeting place came the sounds of the tango and sambo.  In front of the Parroquia were "traditional" dancers enjoying a sunny day at last.  A Mexican friend of mine takes great umbrage at these performances.  "In Aztec culture," he says "wearing feathers was reserved for only the very highest members of society. "

Meanwhile,  in between the two dance groups,  young break dancers set up their own impromptu stage with a large piece of cardboard.   With humor, grace, and the flexibility of young joints they gave us all a great show

The Jardin Gazebo

The gazebo in the Jardin is seldom empty.  The creche from Christmas was replaced by a statue of Ignacio Allende, but now that his birthday has passed, the statue has gone to where ever it lives the other 50 weeks a year, and the youthful breakdancer of San Miguel have made it their stage.


 I think we saw this guy hurt his wrist the night before, but it obviously has no deterrent value.
