Midde-aged women go wild

13 April 2009


One of the weird Sábado de Gloria traditions, which are an excuse to break the Lenten solemnity a bit early, are water fights between housewives. With water rationing (both to recharge the dangerously low reservoirs and to repair the water system) in Mexico City, the police have been arresting people for wasting resources. While most arrests have been of people doing things like washing their cars over the three day water suspension, these Wet n’ Wild women went off to be “socially readapted” for a couple of hours… and dry out.

    Wow, in Quito they seemed to be waterfighting for most of Lent. People sometimes just threw water in the streets – gringas were particularly popular targets. Good job it rains quite a lot there too!
