Baby in the Caribbean Air

On the religious festival of the day of San Miguel in the Caribbean country of Dominican Republic, people dressed up in bright colors (mainly green and red) and went to the streets to drink, dance and celebrate their African heritage. In the crowd appeared "San Miguel" (Saint Michael). He grabbed a baby and held him up in the air to win enthusiastic cheers from the people.
