Last night after hanging out at the school we went to la iglesia escuela de Cristo to see la velacion de la virgen de Dolores. It looked like a street festival. It has been very cold and very windy here in the mornings and evenings. According to Carlos (school director) this is the effect of mars, earth, and the moon being in alignment. The mayan's look to to the sky for their answers, so far they've never been wrong.
Here's a video of what it was like to be at la velacion last night.
