Everybody Loves a Parade
On Tuesday I was sitting in a stalled bus behind a long line of immobile buses and cars, with pedestrians lining the sidewalk. Rather than wait for the traffic to become untangled, I got off to see what was causing the impossible jam. A parade of trucks, carts, and cars loaded with high-school-aged boys and girls were having the time of their lives hooting, yelling, and snaking their way through the narrow streets of El Centro. Everybody loves a parade??!! I know I did!
