Egg Bonking 2012

Egg Bonking in the Jardin, San Miguel de Allende, 2012

Once again, for a couple of days before Lent, the young folk in San Miguel go nuts smashing confetti or ash-filled colored eggs, known as cascarones, on the heads of each other and of innocent bystanders. Sitting on the low walls surrounding the Jardin, having spent an entire year eating nothing but omelettes, the overweight and cholesterol-infused cascarone vendors will sell you a bagfull for 20 pesos. If you want to know all the gory details, have a look at this video about Cascarones.
