Carnaval in Ajijic

The carnaval parade consisted of macho men dressed in drag, women riding as beauty queens on butterfly floats, horses dancing with music, and children throwing confetti and flour at each other and the crowd. Very basic, but a lot of fun.

There is a rumor that a grown man of around 48 and a half years old was seen riding this feathery pony through the village streets. Yes, the rumor is true...it is me.

yes, it's true ... one of my fondest memories of our trip was when I came around the corner on horseback and saw you riding in a plumed carriage being pulled by this decorated pony. So funny it seemed surreal at the moment and still makes me smile. xxoo
