At the beginning of December lots of things start happening in this part of the world. The first and second of December villagers do the Caminata of the Virgin of the Guadalupe. This is basically where the the churches congregation remove the statue of the Virgin and walk it around the village for others to see. Its a reminder of who they worship and give thanks too.
I was invited to a caminata in my local village. It was lovely to see that sense of community is still alive. The kids got dressed up, the men cooked the food and then the women served it up.There was dancing and singing, old wives tales, gossip and a really lovely day…
