Instead it was marching groups - drill teams, drummers, cheerleaders, senior citizens.............and those that were honoring the 43 students that are missing in the State of Guerrero.
Having arrived early at 10AM to be there for the 11AM parade, the sight of those wearing placards to honor the 43 were the first thing I saw.
After the group moved down Umuran, I went to look for a good perch where I could sit and watch the little ones come by.
Again, the spectators stood in respectful silence.
Now I know why on any afternoon when I'm home and outside, I can hear drummers practicing, somewhere. At least twenty drumming groups were in the parade. Of all ages and sizes. They do love to
drum and march.
By now it was almost 1PM and I left. And so it goes.........when I headed home at 3PM, the parade was still going on. Women with aprons on were dancing in the street.
Marching in Mexico is for everyone!
