A Shaman “cleanses” the Mayor of Puerto Vallarta, Javier Bravo Carbajal, at the start of this International event.
Without wanting to sound too political, because, well, that’s illegal for foreigners here in Mexico to do, and without admitting to any belief in the supernatural, because, well, I don’t, I think that all politicians could use this type of treatment. “Cleansing” at the beginning of any administration is pointless and, for the sake of the governed, should always be done at the end, if not periodically along the way.
