For what event is this attire appropriate?
The Three of Expats from California have dressed up for some occasion.
The Beach Boy, the Pink Lady and the Black Widow are going somewhere together.
At 11 am, a somewhat more polished but perhaps less touching procession leaves the Parroquia. This time, Christ on the donkey is a medium-sized statue borne from the Santa Escuela Church, beside the Parroquia. Christ wears a flowing scarlet robe; the donkey seems to sport a rather bemused smile. Preceded by conchero dancers in their bright regalia and trailing feathers and followed by hundreds of participants waving palm fronds, the procession moves down Calle Correo, turns left into Corregidora, then into San Francisco to circle the Jardín. Amid the sound of drums, trumpets and church bells, it returns to the Parroquia.
We are dressed for it and we got one of those things we can carry.
