I'm home but I'm homesick for Mexico...
Here is an awesome video a friend of one of the teams who competed this year just posted in spite of the fact her home was almost washed down a hill in a terrible mudslide. One minute you're standing on a hillside watching a car role down the mountainside and a few weeks later you're sound asleep in your bed when your neighbor's house starts to wash down the hill. We just never know what God has in store for us.
The video is a compilation of various stages on different days and as you will see, this race is not for the faint at heart. CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO then click on video.
I loved this video for many reasons but I thought it amazing that even though I have had some wonderful conversations via the Internet the author and we both spent a couple weeks at the very same race and yet we have never met face to face. In spite of that, without realizing it, we were both sanding on the opposite side of the beautiful square filming the dancers on the stage. What's more amazing about the video and my photos above is what you can't see... The evening was warm and beautiful and all around this square were hundreds of people watching the dancers perform and at one side of the square there were hundreds of dance groups waiting for their turn and yet we both have photos of this specific dance group. While the dance routines continued we all went inside the beautiful palace for the evenings livation and awards ceremoney. What a small wonderful world we all share.
