Sinulog 2013

Hello from Cebu! Cebu City is the 2nd largest city in the Philippines and this weekend the culmination of Sinulog. It's like their Mardi Gras celebrating the acceptance of Roman Catholicism into Cebu. We arrived at the hotel on Friday and it was like a "Stomp the Yard" dance off between neighboring hotels- costumes, props, and Santo NiƱo...the tiny deity they worship during this celebration. Today is the Sinulog Parade through downtown Cebu which should be overly crowded and excessively hot. I'm really not excited about this. But how many times will I ever experience something like this, so lets go get crushed by thousands of Filipinos dancing in the streets! (wish me luck)
