Catemaco, Veracruz

The drive through Tabasco was pretty interesting.  Along the highway, we saw guys holding sticks with parrots on them for sale.  I was tempted to get one to add to my camper filled with monkeys and other critters, but didn’t think we would be able to get him across the US border.  We also saw a small motor scooter with a family of five on it.  No helmets, and from front to back was a small boy, dad, two more children and mom.  No bubble wrapped life for these children!  We stayed at Villas Tepetepan RV Park in Catemaco which was pretty nice and run by a man from the US who has been there for 12 years.  The bathrooms were filled with spiders, the gnats were annoying but didn’t bit and there was a washer and dryer for use.  We had a real treat as we arrived on the weekend that they were having their annual Brujo Festival.  For those of you who don’t know what a brujo is, it is a male witch and Catemaco is know for their brujos.  We went to the opening festivities, but unfortunately it was a bit rainy so we didn’t stay for the whole thing.  A nice boy wiped our chairs off for us because they were all wet from the earlier rain.  I wanted to put some sort of charm on Bob while we were there, but didn’t get to meet with a brujo.  Oh well, off to Cholula.
