I spent the day in Tequila during El Día de los Muertos. Pretty cool, but first I had to head off to the Jose Cuervo distillery
I’ve wanted to visit this town ever since working up on the North Slope of Alaska when I came up with the idea of of building a Tequila pipeline. Well, I thought it was a good idea! The guy at the Jose Cuervo bar told me that all he drinks is 1800. I didn’t have the heart to tell him there are better tequilas out there... he was only 23, afterall, and still has a lot to learn.
Since it was El Día de los Muertos, I left the distillery and headed for El Centro to see what was going on.
An hour or two later and the parade started
Before the parade, I was lucky enough to see a local wedding. Now, to me, getting married on Halloween seemed a little weird. But hey, it works, especially when you can bring the whole family.
This police bike blocked traffic for an hour or more. The whole time the engine was running!
Back inside the church, there was a group of kids reciting something about the saints they represented.
After that, the party continued until after 3:00 AM, but with so many places to get tequila open all night, what do you expect?
And, if you get hungry just stop here:
