Friday 1st December AM - Maximón

Those of you in Actix can ask Jim for an explanation of what's going on here. I'll add some more information for everyone else when I have the guidebook with me.

Friday morning we had a school outing to visit the church of local deity! I think the guys above are saying something along the lines of "We've got the bbq going, but forgot the sausages..."

Here's a very blurred picture of the man himself. People feed him rum and cigarettes. It's all a bit complicated.

The local church debunks the whole thing with an FAQ on why he is not a god.
Here's some more pictures of people sacrificing things.
And here's a picture of the local market.
Marvellous. A splendid time was had by all.
