Mal says he wants to post about the fireworks last night, so I’ll let him tell you all about it. I will just say that we had been told to expect insanity, and that last year the fireworks didn’t stop until dawn. However, because Chavez is at death’s door, the Federal District cancelled their fireworks show, and the whole thing was maybe more muted than it otherwise would have been. Even so, it was the most impressive and jaw-dropping fireworks event I have ever seen, to include both New Years 2000 on the National Mall in DC and several July 4ths in the same location.
Today dawned to a thick pall of gunsmoke over the valley, and utter quiet.
