Cebu's Sinulog Festival

    Tomorrow, Cebu awakes with the annual exciting rhythm of the Sinulog Mardi Gras. The organizers are happy to announce that this year's contingents are exceptional, some of them coming from the different provinces of the country. Being a Cebuana, I sort of lost interest in watching the street-dancing the past years. I decided to give the chance to watch it to the great mass of tourists who seem to enjoy the crowd and the extreme heat of the sun. I found out I could do with the watching in the comfort of my home through the television coverage of the two(2) competing TV stations (how they compete!). Piece of advice to those who would rather witness the grand celebration in person, beware of pickpockets. Great opportunities abound for men practicing this trade though authorities try to gather known pickpockets before the event every year. Another advice...beware of hands that stray on your behinds while you jostle with the crowd. Pit senor everyone!!!!!
