Hi, I'm not sure what is going on today. We have so many activities occurring so regularly it is difficult to keep up with them. Webcam sure looks much prettier in the afternoon with the sun behind us, no?
My wife mentioned hearing on the radio this morning that some downtown streets would be closed off including that main street you see in the webcam. That hasn't happened yet, apparently, but yes, I love this webcam because I can see things going on there in the plaza. If I'm sometimes bored and see some activity brewing in the centro I may decide to jump in a combi (mini-bus) and ride into town - takes about 15-20 minutes in traffic. We have such frequent parades and exhibitons that this is not uncommon, but the street closure for more casual reasons generally happen on Sunday when traffic is minimal. Being this is Friday it should be someting of at least medium importance.
She heard of the street closures on the news but didn't remember the reason, I asked her. Her interest in this is that she was planning to go downtown for her English class and knew to expect traffic. The traffic delay was more of a concern to her than whatever event was going on.
Possibly could be a political rally. Wish I could tell you more and if I find out anything more about it I will. Thanks for posting on our site, glad to have the conversation. -Peter
