Under a Giant Kite from Sumpango

Under a Giant Kite from Sumpango

Shoot! I forgot to mention I also recorded some videos. I am sorry, it looks like we have enough Día de los difuntos Día de Todos los Santos, Day of the Dead All Saints’ Day material for the entire week.

Today you can appreciate the size of a kite and see how the kites are carried from place to place. Also, by watching the video you can hear the sounds and see the excitement as a kite takes off and lands.

Have you ever seen anything like it?

    I like this much better than food photos. I tried getting fiambre at a Guatemalan restaurant but refused to pay $25.00 for a VERY small plate of mixed colored vegetables. How about you post the recipe? And post the rest of the barriletes’ pictures.
