Festival Internacional de Globos in León, Covid-style

The International Balloon Festival that takes place every November in León, Guanajuato has adapted to the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place within our state. Instead of taking place at Parque Metropolitano where the public could easily access the event, it is taking place at a private country club, El Bosque, in order to limit access. All of the morning and evening events are live-streamed for the public, but in-person access is limited to club members and their families and friends. With the change in location, the overhead views of the balloons have changed this year, but the sight of all of those balloons in the sky is still spectacular. I’m happy that the city didn’t cancel the event completely as they have canceled so many other things this year. Seeing beautifully colored balloons floating above me lightens my feeling of isolation from quarantine. I hope these happy balloons brighten your day as much as they have brightened mine. Enjoy and stay safe and healthy!

I'm a wife of an engineer and a mom of two elementary-aged children, a boy and a girl. I was a fisheries biologist for several years, a stay-at-home mom for three years, then a middle school science teacher for three years. I currently live in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico with my family. I have a WIDE variety of interests, too many according to my husband. I quilt, crochet, knit, scrapbook. I sometimes play piano when I need peaceful moments. I love to cook, especially anything containing eggs (someday I need to raise chickens in order to feed my egg addiction). I read voraciously, books of all genres from Stephen King to Robert Jordan, Libba Bray to Edward Robertson, Grace Burrowes to Kim Harrison. I like to run, especially in races (I'm only a little competitive). I love to fish, camp, and hike wherever there are wild spaces. And if there were more hours in the day, I'd probably fill those extra hours learning a new skill or revisiting the ones I did not include in this list because it's been so long since I last did them.
