Flag of Mexico  , Quintana Roo,
Thursday, November 25, 2010

 Since we arrived in Mexico we have seen 4 processions celebrating the Bicentenary of the start of the fight for independence and also, I think, acknowledging and celebrating developments in Mexican institutions such as schools, police, fire services etc. They take place early in the morning and everyone in Tulum seemed to stop work and watch. There is much whistling by the teachers and leaders to co-ordinate the groups (eg whistle - pom poms up, another whistle – pom poms down) but also anarchy on the part of participants so it is all chaotic and fun. No-one is very formal although a lot of effort has been put into the preparation of clothes, props and choreography. Hope you enjoy the photographs.
