Oh wow, i was telling diana before the trip "i am not a big parade guy" but i shut up after she said it was unique and decided to see if she was right before i opened my yap too much more "its just a dang parade" :) cant describe in photos or in words what it was like, one of the best experiences i have had while traveling(capped off by the nights events = best day maybe traveling:)
DAYTIME - The Desfile de Silleteros parade was on a friday with great weather and eveyone in a terrific mood, nothing crazy just happy people behaving themselves. i will maybe add more later, hopefully the pics will say enough, and i wish i could upload video cuz i have some awesome video i took with my camera. Oh and i had my first "pony malta" at the parade :) non alcoholic malted beverage that makes u feel so full afterwards, but i like the unique taste occasionally.
After the parade we met some friends and CS friends at the park close by and made arrangements to meet later(there was a posting/forum on CouchSurfing for the event that night. Diana and I took a bus(oh that was a nightmare) then got out and finished the journey on foot and got home to shower and change and eat quick before heading out to poblado(area across town from diana's) to where the disco/club place was.
NIGHTIME - now i dont like to dance at night clubs and to hip hop or dance music typically cuz i feel i have two left feet and i am nervous. But i love to dance to Punjabi (north India) music because there are no wrong moves really(well there are ;) but within reason), u just go with what u feel and enjoy more so(and i love the feel/rhythm of the music and the sound).
still need to upload videos
