Carpet Round Up

Friday morning we set out early to walk the procession route and observe the alfombra masterpieces. Supposedly the most talked about ones are way over yonder by La Merced, so we certainly had to see what they were all about. While they were certainly becoming, we feel it is necessary to also acknowledge the efforts in the lesser know part of town, our neighborhood, which were just as amazing as their more famous counterparts.

alfombra is impressive in it's own way, so we thought it would be fun to do a little carpet round up to display these once a year pieces of art. I'm sure there must be some sort of judging that goes on throughout the week, but considering that we know nothing about it, we did a little fun judging of our own.
