El carnaval es una tradicion medieval que tiene en Mexico una vitalidad sorprendente. Los locos, los diablos, las maringuillas (que en muchos sitios son hombres vestidos de mujeres), los charros, los catrines y otros personajes que integran la fiesta, encuentran en ella un espacio para vivir experiencias limite y para un despliegue estetico exacerbado. ENGLISH: The medieval tradition of Carnival is still very much alive in Mexico. Locos, diablos, maringuillas (who are often men dressed as women), charros, catrines and many other characters join in the celebration, which provides a space for transgressive experiences and a riotous visual display.
