Listen to the call of the street. Open your eyes. Feel the movement. Watch the sun and sky. Touch the air. Hear the steps. Smell the scents. Close your cellphone. Listen!
The cacophony of bugles and the blare of a giant microphone, the tinkle of a lyre and the harmony of a native song—there they are passing. In high boots and gaudy costumes, pretty girls with wands on their hands and feathers on their hair, sashaying to the beat of the drums. Shiny stardust on their eyes, they smile. So pleasing and amusing, the awesome spectacle has just begun.—Totie Mesia (Photo Credits: Dan Daz; JerryLimLee)============Penafrancia Parade 2008=============
