Bonita!


¡Viva México! is a two-day festival that took place close to Santa Fe at Ranchos de las Golandrinas last week-end. While wandering the grounds and seeing vendors from all over México selling their merchandise I stopped to talk to Michelle who was one of the volunteers from Santa Fe. Although this is only her first year at the facility, she said she has learned a great deal. . .crafts and different kinds of lessons that is part of the volunteer program. Michelle showed me her first weaving that was part of the training program. She hopes to make it into a purse. The volunteer program certainly takes good care of the people who share their time there. (Doesn't she have a sweet smile?!)
