Celebrating Easter with style

20 Apr

Well, this day has already proved to be most interesting. I woke up at 4:30 to the distant ringing of church bells. They went on almost continuously until 5:30 or so, when the fireworks began, several sets of loud booms around town. Vicki was kind enough to make coffee on the stove to help her husband wake up since the electric coffee maker was not functioning.

Following restoration of power, we were all enjoying a quiet and pleasant breakfast when a car pulled up and the mariachi band started playing! Tuba and trumpets announced themselves with some fanfare and made their way through our gate and into our landlord’s house on the first floor, where they are now singing and playing for the whole neighborhood, basically. I have to say, as culture shock goes, it’s quite pleasant. We basically never stop laughing. This is one Easter we will never forget!

    Some culture shocks are pleasant.  Don’t let the PCLU know about this! (counterpart of ACLU).

    Love,   Dad
