The picture above is the nativity scene in the Plaza Republica. As is usual in these kinds of scenes, there are various size animals sharing the barnyard. See the HUGE turkey on the left side of the picture? I took this picture as we met up with Guaymas blogger Brenda and her husband Roy. It was so nice to finally meet them…we went over to the Plazuela Machado and visited over coffee for a couple of hours. They head back tomorrow morning after having a visit with family staying here in Mazatlán.
The next picture is of the sand sculpture nativity scene in the Plazuela Machado. Watching them make these is really interesting – they get the sand just the right amount of dampness and press it into a box overnight, or maybe longer. Then they can sculpt it. Amazing, isn’t it?
And I just love the bull. He’s relaxed in a very natural way, isn’t he?
