ARROYO SECO, Jalisco, Mexico - After a few hours of setting up the property - and getting a balky shower head to come through with the hot water I knew was in the pipe - we headed over the rodeo and got to see the cowboys riding some bulls around and around, and around.
Admittedly, they were mostly young bulls, but not exactly pushovers, either.
And after the rodeo (and a quick visit to the beach to see amigos Jim and Vickie) we had tacos on the square with most of the village.

This year's fiesta is much bigger than last year's even features a merry-go-round for the younger children.
And the rodeo and fiesta continue for the next two days.
Two more days of fiesta, food, rodeo and cervezas?
