Our neighbors pitched in and we put up our own shrine to Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe in La Plaza del Artista across the street from our home.
This evening is one of the most special and significant in all of Mexico as the final pilgrimages are made in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the most revered spiritual icon of our country. Across the country millions of Mexicans have travelled or will finish travelling to the more important churches of their regions or to La Basílica de Guadalupe in Tepeyac. Many carry images to be blessed of "La Virgencita", others simply go to give thanks or seek comfort. This evening many of Mexico's most beloved and famous personalities will gather in La Basílica de Guadalupe to sing and pay homage. It is one of the most beautiful and moving traditions of Mexican culture, and I invite everyone to watch it on Mexican TV, beginning around 11:00 PM.
If you're in the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa area, tonight is a good night to come downtown and partake in the festivities all around the church and on the pedestrians-only streets behind the church.

¡Felicidades a todas las Lupitas!
