Anyway...The blog was supposed to be about the PARADES! It seems like every week or so there is a reason to celebrate in Dangriga! I have seen countless parades for every cause...AIDS awareness, Maya Heritage, the Catholic School's 40th Anniversary, First Form Graduation...so many parades and parties! On Mother's Day, my friend Marci and I were out commiserating in the fact that our children were in different places. We went to dinner, and had a couple beers. In the streets of Dangriga there was a huge block party! Sponsored by the radio station there was live music, and raffles, and food, and noise, and in the midst of it all were the Mama's in their Sunday Best...most with corsages. Beautiful. Perfect. I can't wait for the BIG parties in the fall here...epic!
I have tried to take pics of the parades, and the parties...but alas...my good shots hitherto were mostly flukes. I have a hard drive full of 'eh..photography. Since they are the only images I have of the parades, I will post them anyway...I hope you enjoy. They will most certainly not be as fun as the real thing! sigh
