Bugambilia Festival 2013 (PICS)

This week is the annual Bugambilia Festival. Places all over Old Vallarta are decorated with flowers and spring themes. It's really quite pretty. You can't imagine how noisy and cantankerous Reality is to look at these pictures. Apparently Mexico has no emissions standards or noise ordinances so beat up motors - mopeds, motor bikes, city buses, cars, garbage trunks - and shouting vendors ("Agua!" "Pan!" "El gas!") are a damn constant.

But, for this, week, spring is in the air. The Malecon is hosting free family activities all week long. On Sunday, professionals from all over town were providing FREE 20min massages. I thought that was impressive. Unfortunately I didn't get down there soon enough. As for these snapshots, I don't know who constructed the paper flowers but it clearly took a good deal of time and effort...and it's nice to see no (drunken)punks have ripped them down.
