Egg Bonking Again

Egg bonking in the Jardin, SMA

I had intended posting this at the beginning of February, but better late than never. Every year, for a couple of days before Lent, folks in San Miguel go nuts smashing confetti or ash-filled colored eggs, known as cascarones, on the heads of innocent bystanders. All around the perimeter of 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. Our friend Carmen directed us to this video about Cascarones, featuring her sister Maria.
