Ahh ok so the thing that he has in his hand is what all the boys use to hit the girls with on their butts...i still have a bruise on my thigh..and they´re hard and they hit hard too! I´m not exactly sure why, but they do it..and whenever they hit you you have to run up against a wall or find a guy to defend you...

Monopoly!!! in Spanish!!! I was playing with Orquidea, Ramona, Jimito, Julissa, and Felix Andres

Hamburger stand!!!! There´s lots of hamburger-hot dog-pastelito stands on the corners haha and they´re pretty good too.

El Carnaval!!!!

The parade on! Lots of different groups, this was one of them with twin dolls....and of course they had to do inappropriate things with their twin dolls...hahaha.(top right)

These costumes were the coolest!! (up) they were attatched to people's arms and legs, so when the people walked, it looked like the big skeleton thing was walking...i have a video and i tried to put it up but there was an error...and i have lots more but they take alot of time so i'll put them up some other time..

Los Indios :)
a blue diablo

yes, those are guys...the pic explains it all. :)

Ramona and me...with a skeleton :) haha that was a sweet costume

haha you almost can't see him...but this costume it made out of strips of plastic pasted onto clothing...pretty sweet :)

yes that's a guy.

Los Brujos!!! the witches..they were in the parade, and their float was pretty sweet. except he's smoking a cigar...eew.
I've got alot more pics and videos for later!!!!! =D
