Today is the official beginning of our patron saint festival and so we don't have school today (and didn't yesterday and probably won't tomorrow, either). The bright teal city hall is decorated to honor Masaya's patron saint, San Jeronimo. He is supposed to be carted around the city so everyone can see him but it's raining so who knows if that will happen. So far our new neighborhood has proven much less festive and thus much more quiet than where we used to live. That's worth celebrating.
