SANTA LUCIA, CUBA: SQUEAL IF YOU LOVE FRIDAYS!

 LOVE (AND SWINE MANURE) IS IN THE AIR . . .
Friday, May 4 , 2012, Santa Lucia

You know how, when you have a hot date coming up, you try to think of something really memorable and unusual to do? Well in Santa Lucia, Cuba, they don't have skydiving or nightclubs or fancy-schmancy restaurants, but they don't let that get in the way of a good time. They just load up a pig in their best truck . . . the one with the handpainted Tigger on it (because nothing says "bad-ass" like a handpainted Tigger truck) . . . and get ready to hit the town. Except that it isn't really a town, it's a village, or rather it will be when about 50 more people move in. (Seconds after I took this pic, the couple in the truck were overcome by the heady romance of it all and started kissing while the pig grunted its approval.) Hope your Friday is even HALF as much fun as this!
