the virgin of guadalupe gets busted

For twelve days in December Mexico celebrates the miracle of The Virgin of Guadalupe. Shrines are set up all over town. Five times a day rockets and bomb-lets are set off, beginning at 5 AM. This goes on from December 1st to the 12th. The celebration is capped by a big fireworks display in the center of town. Here is my favorite, the Virgin behind bars, taken in 2005.
