Morelia: Saturday Night

Just before nine on Saturday night, the main street of Morelia, in front of the Cathedral, is closed off to cars. Crowds flow into the newly opened space, and watch as the dramatic choral music begins, as the flood lights illuminating the catheral are turned on, and as fireworks explode. This goes on for only ten or fifteen minutes, but it is infinitely satisfying, like a dramatic punto - full stop - for the week.

I would be very jealous if I weren't out on my own adventure.

Thanks for the link to my blog!
