CARNAVAL GUAYMAS 2011
Early this March we took a mini vacation to re-charge the DIMEX batteries and decided to go to Guaymas Sonora and visit the family and enjoy the annual Carnaval.
As soon as we got there there was this mini cold wind that was unusual to the Guaymas Climate, I’m used to the hot humid weather that is sued with a cold Pacifiquito and a dip into the beaches of the Sea of Cortez. We got there a little early but didn’t mind since we had a lot of Familia to visit. The day finally came and we headed down to “La Serdan”.
And it began, I had my mini hielera filled with Pacifiquitos and had my camera ready. The floats are always cool, the queens and princesses are beautiful and the crowd amazing.
I bought some “Cascarones” which are egg shells filled with confetti and as I got a little more buzzed I found myself throwing them towards the floats like every other kid in the parade.
After a while the crowd got a little to big for me so I decided to go back and chill by where my aunt was with her homies. They were all pistiando and having a great time.
My favorite float had to be this one, it was simple as hell but I loved the way these chicks were dressed and the way they were dancing, it was like an old school Burlesque theme that reminded me of cowboy western days. Haha.
The Coca-Cola float always present, along with the Coca-Cola Girls drinking “Un Bote De Tecate” honestly by now a lot of people are getting their buzz on. Even the performers.
This guy was pretty cool he was just walking around with his cane posing like a true gentleman, then I asked my aunt who he was and it was funny because she actually did know who he was along with half of the older crowd in the parade, in little towns like this you are well known by someone. That’s cool.
My future “Ahijado” Alan was enjoying the parade his first in his life hehe. I am going to become his godfather on June and will be back to the home land again.
Oh yeah I forgot to mention “Las edecanes” at every expendio, just wanted to share this image with you. If you ever want to visit Guaymas don’t forget to visit San Carlos and Miramar and please try to eat at every street cart, you wont regret it unless you don’t like good food. Ohh and no there’s no Narco killings here in fact there’s no killings in a lot of the cities in Mexico.
