This chapter provides ethnographic information about the Play in Santo Domingo de Ónzole and La Tola at the beginning of the twenty-first century. In December 2002, the author traveled to the province of Esmeraldas, where he spent four weeks doing some fieldwork. His objective was to find out how the Play was being performed since he last visited. Once back home in Miami, he revised his diary in order to develop his initial analyses. He also inserted transcriptions of fragments of interviews conducted while in the field. The chapter maintains the diary format in the hopes that this approach would be a better way to share with readers his progressive reconnection with the Festival and the two villages.
