Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Mexico

I am in Mexico and today is Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday. Internet reception isn't great but here are a couple of photos from Patzcuaro:
 There was lots of dancing in the Square in the afternoon. This is a traditional dance with the participants wearing masks.



















In the evening there was a small parade with men dressed as women and everyone wearing masks .This handsome young man was my dancing partner!

  12. Mexico??? Wow--you get around, Marie!!!! I'm envious.... We loved Mardi Gras when I lived in New Orleans years ago. We celebrated Mardi Gras for about 3 weeks before Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday).. On that Tuesday, we always had PANCAKES (tradition).... Then the next day began LENT ---and we all dieted.... ha

    Hugs,

  14. What fun! That means today must be Ash Wednesday. I've lost track of the church calendar since I left it behind, but I've been to a few Mardi Gras celebrations myself. Glad you're away from the cold at least. :-)
