2019 International Cervantino Festival winds down

Rainbow steps at University of Guanajuato

#guanajuato #mexico #47FIC @cervantino @UdeGuanajuato

Today/tonight will end the nearly 20-day run that is the 47th edition of the International Cervantino Festival in Guanajuato, Mexico. I just happened to be here for nearly half of those days. The last few days have featured this art installation on the steps of the University of Guanajuato. Besides the rainbow of colors shown here, there were various moving light works that gave the appearance of a snake, or other objects, pulsating or moving up and down the stairs. The visuals were incredible. I took this on Wednesday night but went back on Friday night to sit in the second-story bar across the street for a better view. I was mesmerized by the display for an hour or so.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of things going on at once in the city during the festival. The crowds can be incredible in size–especially on the two Saturday nights I was here.

I never once looked out the window during my red-eye flight from San Francisco to Houston a couple nights ago. But after a nap in the Houston airport I did take a few peeks at the peaks on my way to Guanajuato. Today’s photo captures that scene.

I’m back in Guanajuato, Mexico for the first time in over five years. I won’t be here long enough to see the Day of the Dead festival, but Festival Internacional Cervantino (FIC) is raging right now. FIC has grown to become the most important international artistic and cultural event in Mexico and Latin America.
