    Even after fifty years this is pure eye candy!

    One evening in the early 70’s, Steve, Carl and I drove from a nearby village to spend an evening in Puebla. And into the midst of a festival featuring egg shells stuffed with confetti. After having a few of them smashed on my head, I purchased my own plastic bag full of confetti missiles.

    Don’t like the way a man looked at me? Throw an egg at him.

    Kid running by? Throw an egg at him or her.

    I remember lobbing my final egg at the chest of a policeman directing traffic, which got me a baleful eye.

    A very satisfying evening. ;-)
