UN World Peace Day

The FIRST sign that "something" was going on as I walked down the hill today was traffic backed up for about 3 blocks! Ut oh, I said to myself -- now what. I finished my shopping - just HAD to have mango chutney -- stopped in the Blue Door Bakery for my one cinnamon roll which I "allow" myself on Saturday mornings with my coffee -- and headed for the jardine.
Pandemonium reigned. Little munchkins dresssed like every country, and then some, were running all over the jardine. The parades always end at the jardine and I had missed the whole parade. BUT I didn't miss watching the children and taking photos. The little girl in the red, white and green is chasing bubbles. I so hoped that photo would have shown more bubbles, but hey, I did my best!
AND, on the church steps was this adorable little girl dressed as none other then, Mz. Carmen Miranda! I have no idea what country she represented but she laughed when I asked if I could borrow her costume, por favor. I love the "attitude" of the hands on her hips!
Too cute...........

In comparison to Mz Miranda, Mz Espana was shy and not so happy and wanting to get this allllllllll over with.........

Ok I admit, I now LOVE the digital camera. I also admit that now that I have figured out how to download, I'm happy. There are still other things I want to figure out, but for the time being - THIS is enough!
Happy UN World Peace Day from San Miguel de Allende.
