In July I was able to visit Mexico for the third time in 2009. The family was celebrating my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary, which all their children, grandchildren, and friends got to be part of. The party took place in Mexico City instead of my grandparent’s house in Tianquizolco, Guerrero. located 4 hours south of D.F.) After the party none of us wasted time to take the quick road trip south, it was a $4.00 bus ride for some, and for others we just tagged along in a friend of a friend’s van.
Our driver took the quick way through another town name Chilacachapa, which was great because we were able to be part of a festivity in that beautiful town.
La Fiesta del Santo Patron Santiago is celebrated every July 25 by many Catholics in Mexico, especially in smaller towns. They have mass, prayers, and parades dedicated to this saint, who was one of the 12th apostles.
