One Possible Way to Tell If You're Becoming Jaded

Another day, another bizarre procession moving past my front door. Maybe it's a sign that I've been here too long, but when I heard the drums and the conch shells, smelled the incense and heard the chanting, my only thought was, "Oh shit, do I have to move my car?" I have no idea what the hell this one was for - the Holy Feast of Nuestra Señora de Aceleración Bendecida or something. Didn't even occur to me to ask anyone. I snapped this picture while the perro and I were waiting for a break in the line so we could cross the street and get to the Plaza de Armas before the half-priced beer hour ended.
