Let me tell you going to the thrift store in a third world country is very different. Its outside underneath a huge roof, kind of like the French market. There were probably 200 vendors. All the vendors yell the whole time you are in there. "everything is cheap" "come see what I have" "everything in my shop is 10 quetzales" "Stick your hand in and see what you pull out" "C'mon' C'mon C'mon in". It was hilarious. Naomi got a little nervous so Danny took her and the kids out then I could really concentrate on digging in.
Thanks Graced for your offer you are so thoughtful, but I found the thrift store!! YEA
Abbey the thrift store feeling definitely is universal but not to worry we had our germ-X!!! :)
Sorry guys I could not figure out how to flip the video around. Anyone else know how? At least you guys get the idea.

These kites are huge!!
They write messages on kites and fly them so the dead relatives can read the message. It was a very happy occasion. I thought it might be morbid but it was not in the least. The kites were amazing some of them were so big they did not fly these were only for display.
Danny and I could not get over how it was so much fun but at the same time complete chaos. We were all in one soccer field and everyone was trying to fly a kite. We had some serious tangles. The people would walk up to the mass, bite the string, tie it back and go fly their kites.
We loved laying on the blanket watching all the kites! There were so many to see.
Our favorite part was being together as a family and seeing other families have such a good time.
