Annual Taking of the Alhondiga Day Fills Guanajuato Streets
Yesterday, when I went down to Embajadoras, the entry street was filled with riders on their mounts. Spectators lined the route of course. I saw horsemen from clubs as far away as Tamaulipas and a few women and children on horseback too. The parade had been underway a long time as the local children and bands made their appearance. A festive day, popular with Guanajuatenses.
