    It is quite a festival: A simple stomp as you walk and whistle in step march-dance while wearing fuzzy chaps and a pointy wooden hat dance whilst carrying a whip… Random dancing men were playing harmonicas and some guys had deer skulls mounted on sticks they carried high in the air. Some dancers were carrying small trees.

    Riot police with clear shields stood at every corner of the town square to keep the fiesta and dancers from creating havoc anywhere else. I love the craziness of life…
