saturday in downtown SMA

 A boy and his father ride to town.

 Annie stops at a street stall and buys a shirt for her husband.

Jim’s garden is full of butterflies, orange ones …

… and black ones.

 A wedding party parades through the streets, proceeded by a burro covered with flowers.

Supper tonight – it looks like a pile of applesauce, but that’s a tamarind margarita. We’re on a rooftop restaurant with a view of the big church under the moon.
