Neighborhood events, or not. Just about every neighborhood had a party on the evening of November 2ND, and events during the day. We still haven’t adjusted to the fact that the advertised start time of any event is really just a rough – very rough- guide. We showed up to the closest neighborhood park at 9:00 AM for the Dia de los Muertos bell mass, and it never happened. The folkloric dance presentation scheduled for 10:00 AM still hadn’t started by 11:30, so we ended up coming home. But we did enjoy some local baked goods, and playing on the foosball tables that were set up by 10 am, and a quick glance at the “tuning” competition – there were some very decked out cars. The real action of the neighborhood parties seems to be in the evening, and we didn’t make it back for that.
