I hope you enjoy!
The Day of the dead
The day had arrived. The day of the dead [dia de los muertos] :the most bitter-sweet day.I stepped into the huge village. I saw the painted walls it looked so bright I thought it would have burn my eyes! The villagers were buzzing like bees preparing.I ventured into the village,I saw pictures of people who had been gone.. I felt empty inside. I didn’t think I didn’t move I just began to sob [even though I don’t know who these people are]
Afterwards I walked around the amazingly, artistic path.All of a sudden,the sun began to set;I saw some people watching the huge fireball being pulled to the ground.Just then a little girl tapped on my shoulder,she held my hands and began to dance. The people in the street brightened up. The carnival had started, nearly everyone stopped sobbing and had a smile upon their face.
All of a sudden, I heard drums banging,trumpets being blown and I could also hear people cheering,I ran like a Flash to where the villagers were. I see this gigantic skull coming towards me! It was terrifying,but also funny at the same time.
I had a blast.But this was not the end,I was starving that I could eat 2 packs of cereal! I was so excited to taste some Mexican food.There were tacos,burritos and more. I tried one taco it smelled spicy,the smell made my mouth water,as soon as I put it in my mouth it was so spicy it felt that my mouth was on fire!
After a while I explored in the small Mexican village. I saw little kids dancing with others,one little boy held my hand and began to dance, first it felt weird but then I quite enjoyed it. It seemed like everybody knew each other.
All of a sudden all the lights turned off… I could hear accordions being played. Everyone began to dance. At last the marvelous concert started. There were billions of people, every time I tried to walk somewhere else people always squashed me up!
One dancer came up she had a white dress the dress shimmered in the dim light , she began to spin, as if she was a whirlwind.
After a while a man came up and sang a magnificent song in spanish his vice was loud and beautiful, as soon as the man finished singing everybody clapped, whistled and shouted ‘’yeah!’’
Now some strange puppeteers came out:two were holding skeleton puppets and the other was holding a ventriloquist's dummy. The ventriloquist asked,’’ How’d you do Skelly?’’ the ventriloquist dummy answered ‘’Oh I know how to introduce myself!’’ No one laughed. Whatever oh!please can you get me some water?’’ moaned the ventriloquist’s dummy. ‘’We’re running out of time we have to go! Bye!’’ waved the ventriloquist.
Suddenly , cellphone rang DRRRRDRRR I answered it. It was mom she called me because I had to go I walked into the colourful pathway as I saw my mom , I opened the car door and I was out of the village.
