Well, Dan was an extremely busy boy today. Not only did he get the Wirie installed and wired in but he also fabricated the cables and installed the new batteries. Unfortunately, we can’t seem to get the Wirie hooked up but we are learning patience.

MAYBE TOMORROW WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT
We finally made it into downtown tonight for a little street-walking and sightseeing only to find the street blocked off. We just parked our little ride and we stuck our noses in to see just what was happening. As luck would have it (that would be our good luck), it was Ponce’s night for celebrating Carnival with a parade. The little girls were duded up in their fairy princess best for the official Crowning of the Child Queen on this lovely Friday evening while the guys dressed in the traditional Vejigantes (the devil or evilness) costumes. They would go around smacking innocents with their blown cow bladders or inflatable clubs to ward off evil spirits. We chowed-down on the superb street-food while watching the little girls prance, the bands blast and the Vejigantes whack.
