Every year at this time the air is full of excitement as the Perigrinos complete their promise to The Saint Gudalupe. Each town or village or even city choose a place for their destination to celebrate on the 11th in the eve of that special day
This year with my new entrance way and exhibition area I felt I was able to participate in a small way. I went into Ticul and bought a statue of Guadalupe to display Helping to encourage the runners
Last year I headed into Merida and enjoyed the wonderful celebration with some friends but this year because of a heavy business schedule I decided to stay local .
The most exciting part is when our local people arrive back in the early evening in time for a special mass at the church. They wait at the entrance of the village waiting for the Police cars to head up the walk/run into the village…. Shouts and singing along the way…. it just gives one goose lumps . This year they ran from Mexico City in only 5 days…
Below are the photos that I managed to snap as they passed by
