Cinco de Mayo

San Antonio needs little reason to celebrate or have a party.  We have a giant New Year's Eve party, Fiesta in April with at least four parades, and three Independence Days.

Of course July 4th is one.  The other two may surprise non-Texas readers.  One is Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) and the other is Diez y sies day (September 16).  Cinco de mayo is the celebration of Mexico's independence from France in 1862 and Dies y sies is the celebration of the delcaration of independence from Spain in 1810.

My wife and I went to El Mercado in downtown San Antonio on May 5 fully aware of the holiday and celebration in San Antonio.  El Mercado was packed and almost impossible to walk.  So we enjoyed a lunch at a side walk cafe in the market area.  It was a wonderful opportunity to  photograph a number of interesting faces

Lunch was great and the photos are nice too.
