On Saturday night we participated in the Virgin of Guadalupe fiesta.

The kids were all costumed up, and every house has a virgin altar in the front. The entire puebla walked through town stopping at every single altar to dance and sing for the virgin and bless the house. We were amazed at the beauty of it. It started at 10:00 at night, and they marched and sang all night long, 'til dawn mass. They were serving pozole, and atole, and chocolate, and cafe all night long. There wasn't a drop of alcohol (to respect the virgin, and because it puts you to sleep!). anyway, it was amazing to be here and be part of it.

The Virgin of Guadalupe Angel of the Stars is Mara Christina, Melia's main friend.
