In many cultures where there is a strong Catholic presence, today is Fat Tuesday, is the last day for "living it up" before the lenten season begins. The day before Ash Wednesday "El Torito" or the bull can be seen in plazas, streets and schools. El torito is done by a group of people who dance with a band (drum, trumpets, cimbals and horns) along with a person dressed as a devil or demon, a bull and various dancers. Here are some video clips of a torito at a local school.

Third culture kid born and raised in New York. Adventure bound and living in Mexico for ten years and counting. In love with learning and asking questions. My thoughts on being an expat? It's all about attitude: You can take the kid out of NY but never try to take NY out of the kid.
