The Festival of the Bologna Sandwich
Mexico hosts a rich tapestry of festivals and sometimes we find ourselves driving right in the middle of them! Just the other day, traffic slowed so the entire village could walk for kilometers and kilometers down the middle of the road. Now, our beloved Philomena does fine when she is motoring at a normal pace, but she loaths the crawl to a boiling point! What to do? Pull over and toss the football, of course! Eventually, we saddled up and inched back into the masses as they pulled to the side of the highway to celebrate spiritual festival by (from what we could tell) eating loads of bologna sandwiches on white bread. If our spanish were better we might be able to provide a bit more detail about what is really going on around us. In ignorant bliss we roll on.
