Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Picture Friday - To Church In El Refugio


Headed To Church: Pilgrims walked from "La Barranca" towards the church. The trek probably took them about 1.5 hours - down from the mountains, where they live. They walked in two single file lines. At certain points, they would sing. At other points, they would pop VERY loud fireworks (we call them palomas -illegal in the States), as announcement of their arrival. This lets other people know the location of these specific pilgrims. Groups like this come to El Refugio from all over. Posted by Hello
