El Burro Infeliz


El Burro1


El Burro2

Last week, we left the mercado with the happiest-looking shopping cart load I’ve ever seen. El Burro Feliz looks so friendly, so trusting, so pleased that we selected him among all the other hopeful pinatas.

And the “after” picture? Poor Burro, flattened and happy no longer, with candied entrails spilling everywhere. We saved his head.
