This is a shot of just a small section of the miles-long crowds forming along the Malecon hours before the parade started. We were lucky to be above the crowds on a condo terrace owned by friends of ours. It, too, was crowded with other tenants and their friends, families, and visitors. I suspected that Jaime who hates crowds was not as enthralled with the festivities as I.
