Local Rodeo

Last Sunday we attended a local rodeo outside of town.
It was interesting.
No places to sit, the arena was surrounded by vehicles
and people either stood at the fence or
on top of their cars to watch the events.

There was a lot of standing around
waiting for the next event...

There was calf roping.

Bull riding.

Showing off.
After a while, we walked around a bit to see what we could see.
This man was busy working on his truck.
A street vendor selling fresh fruit.
We had quite a few close encounters with the horses.
That's Jojo there in the green shirt to the right of the horses.
Local beauties hamming it up on top of a trailer.
Not sure what was up with the jeans out of their boots...

There was a little mariachi band striking up tunes by the bull pen. Micah and friend Carlitos by the bulls.

All in all, a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Yee Haw! How fun!!
It's amazing how similar our fruit vendor looks to yours. Can you buys fruit cut up or just whole fruit? People here often can't afford a whole, say mango or watermelon, so they just buy a quarter of one, or even just a slice.
I need to go look at the post below this one the title Anaconda Adventures got my attention. :)
