Dia De San Pedro opening night
Dia Del San Pedro opening ceremonies were tonight.
People were out and enjoying themselves. I had a good time, met up with a few of the kids from Holy Cross School. We walked around and talked for a bit. I can hear people on the ferris wheel from here as it is spinning so fast. I am going to go back over and get a taco.
One hour till fireworks.
The fair is totally on Belize Time, when I went back Groupo Huracan the Mariachi band was playing and they had not even done the opening ceremonies yet. I ran into Zac and he said that he was supposed to play with Barry and the Islanders hours a go and they still had not been up yet. After the fireworks he finally got to play. I stayed for their first song and then turned into a taco and came home.
I set the alarm for 4 am to watch the Misa De Gallo (Fisherman’s mass) procession through town. I will give it my best shot to get up, right now I am just no sure I will be able to scrape myself out of bed in two and a half hours. I did make an iced coffee now to see if that will help me out of bed. (I did get up to check but there was no street procession my neighbor said they will do that tonight. It must have only been a mass at the church only this morning)
Saw lots of flips
Boat ride – how exciting
Last bag of cotton candy for you message boarders that were asking for some
You know the carnival has officially started when the snack vendors are there
Many people take shoes off for this one – no flying flip flops
Miguel going on a ride
First person not in San Pedro that can guess what this is for wins a belikin – answer must be specific
Ferris wheel goes so fast it is crazy
Taco Lady – always great
Groupo Huracan – great mariachi music
They always have great fireworks here
Barry and the Islanders – more great music – I can still hear them playing
