Aren't those kids adorable? And the thing that I thought was even funnier was that as one parade was ending, another was beginning right behind the first parade. I think it is also funny that these kids are dressed as miniature Santas, even though it is January.
A couple of days later, there was a special celebration for President Correa's 5 years in office and my friend, Anita, and I went over to see what was going on. Here are some photos of that celebration:
There were people everywhere. And the celebration went on into the wee hours of the morning. In fact, we live only a few blocks from el Estadio (the stadium) where the celebration took place and fireworks went on until after midnight. You just never know what might happen in this town. Expect the unexpected!!
