MUCHACHOS! Today we ride.

For the ice cream, yes? And the bunting, and the many pretty ladies. We ride to see the children: the mop-topped sweet niñitos with their button noses and many-freckled faces.

We ride to listen, too! Ah, we’ll hear the big sirenas from all the public safety traffic: the fire engines, las ambulancias, the Crown Vic Interceptors. These sounds may startle you! At times you may want to plug up your ears! This is how it should be. This is the way of the parade in America.

Tomorrow we may die, yes? But today… We ride!
