November 14, 2009

Saturday was a day to rest. We did have the opportunity to visit Granjas Unidas a colonia high up in the hills of small animal breeders. There we experienced the dances of a group of Matachines. Usually one group sponsors another by providing the new group with the dance costumes. This ceremony included the blessing of the new garments and banners. Matachines are group of dancers who perform religious themed dances usually at several Roman Catholic celebrations.
