it seems like february is the month that all of mexico’s public holidays happen. since the calendar ticked over from january, its been a non-stop party in some corner of sayulita. this past week has been especially festive. on top of the considerable number of tourists already here, many more came when a bunch of carnival rides sprung up on the football field. there was also a parade through the plaza yesterday to commemorate the founding of sayulita (i think). i’ve been playing with a really cool program called lightroom which lets you enhance your photos very easily. with all of the events going on, i couldn’t pass up the chance to get out the nikon and snap some shots. i’ve still got a tendency to go a bit overboard with the dials in lightroom, but i hope you enjoy the photos!
mike tyson decided to show up with a friend.
these ones are from the carnival at the football field. nayou went crazy on the rides, especially the merry-go-rounds with cars. all the rides started very close to his bedtime, so by the end of the night he was one tired baby.
this was a really fun (and really dangerous) game for the adults. for twenty pesos (about $1.60USD) you get to choose three rocks to throw at the bottles. if you break one, you get a beer. if you break two, you get two beers. and if you break three, then you get a six pack! i sucked at it, but brenda scored pretty well. i don’t think you’d ever see this kind of thing in new zealand or america. its a lawyer’s wet dream. viva mexico!
someone commissioned napoleon dynamite for some of their stall art. great shading on the upper lip.
