Among the many Guadalupe-related items for sale in surrounding shops: anti-bacterial soap, refreshing foot cream, and my favorite, disinfectant and deodorizing spray for shoes, which my wife prevailed on me not to buy, to my lasting regret.
Gazette columnist Carl Strock shares two dozen photos from his recent trip to Mexico. Featured are people celebrating the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe and action from a bullfight. Warning: The bullfighting scenes are not for the squeamish. Strock blogs about the photos in "Strock Freestyle" under News blogs.
