Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Fifteen Minutes at The Korean Festival

Lovely costumes!
Lovely fans!
Lovely smiling faces!
We just had no idea what was going on or what they were doing.

This lady didn't even have to walk in the parade.
She was carried.

And apparently quite happy to be carried...

We weren't sure what this guy was or what his costume represented.
We were especially confused about that thing on his head with the ribbons.But later during the ceremony he would spin his head around in a circle, first one way then the other.
That thing with the ribbons was swinging around in a big circle.
We figured it out then.
It was to keep the bugs away.

We also weren't sure what this black widow creature was.Never figured that one out.

And other than it being some kind of ceremony didn't figure this part out.Except the guy in white with the ribbons on his head.
He was keeping the mosquitos away.

And we certainly figured out why children and most adults are afraid of clowns.That one was easy.
