15-04-10 Weekly Photo Challenge – Afloat (Danza_de_los_Voladores)

“Those who gave away their wings are sad not to see them fly.”

~Antonio Porchia,Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

As we came out of the Museo Nacional de Antropología we heard some music coming from a greensward ahead of us. As we walked over we saw,well, some gentlemen “afloat” in the distance.  It went something like this.

This event goes by the name of Danza_de_los_Voladores or “Dance of the Flyers”. It is apparently a centuries old ritual in Mesoamerica.

Here are some other views on floatation…
