Carnitas truck and voting

On the way back from voting, where at 2:30 we were the first voters of the day at the courthouse, we saw a wonderful truck at the pulga. It was painted on the side with a beautiful scene of two pigs either sparring or dancing, observed by two tapatio onlookers in full regalia. Business at the market was slow because everybody who might usually frequent it was either at the free Univision radio concert at the convention center or at the conjunto festival (free to kids and cheap for old people) at Fiesta Gardens. When we tried to head on over to at least catch Ricky Naranjo y los Gamblers, we found that, for some reason, a lot of streets were blocked off. We saw people flocking to both events. For the first time in ages, we skipped Fiesta Gardens because, instead of devoting the afternoon pretty much entirely to conjuntos and reserving the louder acts for the evening, the program alternated, so that Johnny Degollado wasn't due to come on stage until after supper and Ruben Vela not until well after that.
