Waiting for the Women

Photobucket

 
It is my last morning in Zacatecas. I am waiting for the Huichol women to set up their tables and lay out their wares near Jardín Juárez.
 
I am on a mission: to buy a necklace or some earrings. I know what magic these women’s fingers can weave with brightly colored beads.
 
I should have bought the necklace yesterday, but I am the world’s worst procrastinator, and now I have only until noon to accomplish my task. Then I leave for the airport.
 
Because I am an early riser, I have several hours to wander the empty streets. The women will not arrive until at least 10 a.m.
 
My wanderings take me to the Alameda García de la Cadena, one of the city’s most alluring parks, long, languid, and lush with fountains, flowers, and fences.
 

Sing me a riddle:
How many clouds can you pin
to an iron fence?
