I know I have blogged recently about the Annual Red Cross Pre-Carnaval Dance, but I attended today, and I think it was the best I’ve ever seen. Especially the costumes. . . they were spectacular !
Our table had a great time and we hope that next year more of the international ladies will join us. The Yucatecan women are so pleased to see us at the Red Cross’ biggest fundraiser of the year; it shows them we are part of this community.
The Red Cross in Merida economically sustains the Cancer Hospital, the ambulance service and a host of medical facilities. A LOT of pesos are needed and this one event brings in the lion’s share of the annual budget.
I hope you enjoy the photos. (Click on any image to start the slideshow)
