Guanajuato, Mexico. I always love photographing cowboys and most especially in Mexico during a cabalgata when hundreds form a religious procession. This one somewhere between San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato city. These men ride hard, drink hard, and pray hard simultaneous. Their wives and children are also part of the mix, yet usually following in SUVs etc. If you are a gringo photographer you too will at least drink hard. The more you join, the more you will be accepted. At some point I did try the ride. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you are an expert horseman which I am not. These days most have fiberglass saddles which are way way out of any “comfort zone” and walking afterwards could take a few hours of rehab. However this is something to see and live. There must be more fiestas of one kind or another in Mexico more than anywhere on the planet. Always a reason for a fiesta. Always a brass band. Always drums. Always an accordion. Always shots of tequila or mezcal or something you can’t really identify. Always so so much fun. Viva Mexico!!!#guanajuato #sanmigueldeallende #cabalgata
