Morelia's Cathdral, still going strong

Morelia's Cathdral, still going strong

Out of sheer dumb luck, Zach and I managed to be sitting at a sidewalk restaurant/bar across the street from the cathedral when this celebration began.  The magnificent building took over 80 years to build and–as an odd English announcement said during the ceremony–is “the embodiment of Morelia’s culture and traditions”.  With any luck, they’ll still be celebrating here in another 265 years.
