Donna, I asked around and the dancers are called " the Viejitos" around Patzcuaro. They wear slightly over sized huaraches with hard leather soles and do a kind of slap dance. They do put out a lot of energy. The festival sounds like fun. I am interested in Jarocha music. The music from around Veracruz. Their music and dance festivals are called Fandangos. I would guess there are some pretty good fireworks in DC on the fourth, too. Last night we went to a concert with the Bobby Watson Jazz Band in a 16th century courtyard. The acoustics are very nice surrounded by stone walls. We have been running around a lot, so I haven't played much. We are staying in a hacienda converted to apartments with our own little stone courtyard and the uke sounds so good there.
If the board members haven't heard Donna sing and play, you are missing something. The last time we went to Moro I took my uke. We didn't expect any company but Sarah and Rick showed up. Rick asked if I was going to play something. So I did. They might not have wanted to make the same mistake twice, but they should have had you play on the bird crawl.
We will be back in Vallarta tomorrow.
Hasta la vista.
Gloria, the first China Comida was good. A Chinese lady and her daughters ran it. We tried another Chinese and Japanese place that were so,so. The sushi had cheese in it, Which is taking fusion too far for me. I'm sticking to Asian food by Asians.
