**(Things are a bit out of order. Let's go back to last Sunday.)**
I hope that you aren't tired of seeing photos of poinsettias, because here are more. Just as you see marigolds all over the city for the Day of the Dead, during the Christmas season poinsettias are everywhere.
As you may remember, Alejandro's sister Sandra wanted to buy a poinsettia for the house. Last Sunday, after spending a couple of hours at the "kermés", she suggested that we drive to the Paseo de la Reforma where they were having a poinsettia festival. Tents were set up on both sides of Reforma, and dozens of local flower growers were selling poinsettias as well as other plants. There were also vendors selling Christmas decorations. Unlike the disappointing poinsettia fair in Iztacalco that I wrote about last week, this was the real deal.
