Ahhh, those holy cohetes Empty Ahhh, those holy cohetes

When we first moved here to Ajijic, our neighbor Jack early one morning went off on the hundred plus cohetes that were blasting him awake. My spouse and I went all Full Jack on the bombardment that began this morning at about five--or was it six? We're aware of church's desire to acknowledge the blessed movement of various Virgens. We can't help but think, though--in our entitled, culturally ignorant fashion--that the money used to claim dominion over when everyone in our village is forced awake--That that money could be better spent on healthcare, education, food.

Totally agree. A waste of money and a detriment to the hearing and sanity of anyone and any animal within range.

Years ago when we started building our house we made the bedroom furthest away from the street, used double brick building and double pane windows.

Apparently, this will be the last day until the next event. I hope I read the other post on this subject correctly :)

Hate the damned things, just for my poor dogs’ sake. Pretty much not a problem near me in Riberas but this year we were bombarded due to the nearby church. I understand the priest there lives them. Poor Dr. Ladron’s patients must have really suffered.

Quote from the Virgen: "I just spent two friggin' hours getting a colicky Baby Jesus to sleep and you f***ers just woke him up again!"

And these things were about $1 usd each when I bought some about 10 years ago. Probably $2 usd now.
