After my last post, many of you who are not here in Mazatán have written to ask if I’d post photos of all the monigotes this year. Marilyn Monroe is still not up, and I’m not sure if she will be even though we saw her being made. (UPDATE: Marilyn is now added to the slideshow below).
Above you can see these eight-meter/26 foot tall statues, starting from the north at Playa Camarón (La Tongolele) and going in order to the south (Al Jolson), in the Machado.
