We attended two evenings out before Colin left for Culiacan.
The first was at El Balche. As you can see it is an open air event location with a pyramid being a feature. This is not the band we went to see. I just wanted to show you the layout. First and last time for us.The drinks were horrible and the food was just okay with very little choice for Colin and I.
We were there to see a Santana Tribute put on by Santana – Maz. Benito is the Mazatlan Santana and he indeed looks like Carlos. As you can see it was a bit chilly as the band were wearing coats and even a Canadian toque on Howard the sax player’s head.
We were there with our friends Genie and Joe ( who is a first class drummer ), I had three layers on at this point. To be honest it was very chilly and we were all shivering. Later we thought about it and as you can see in the first photo there is a very tall hotel behind us. We believe that this was creating a wind tunnel. Genie is out of focus because she was bopping around to the music.
Nice photo of Joe and Colin.
Colin was happy to introduce Benito to Joe. Hopefully next season Joe may find some musical groups to play with.
We were so very surprised to discover that once out of that place it was not windy and was much warmer. We were worried about taking the lancha back to the Isla and freezing but instead it was calm with nary a ripple on the ocean.
A week ago today, Saturday evening we were invited to a bonfire and firework display.
Dave one of our friends here in RV1 decided to host a bonfire and firework presentation in honour of his 80th birthday.
Many many of Dave’s friends from all over the Isla came to celebrate.
And this is when I noticed that I had a sore throat. Obviously I caught it at the Santana evening.
Happy 80th Dave! Wishing you many more.
The next four photos were taken by Colin, he was looking for a mix of people and fireworks.
The following were my snapshots of the very well done fireworks. How fortunate we were to have this happen right in front of our RV.
We really did have a wonderful time at both of these events but I certainly could have done without my sore throat and horrid cough which I am still dealing with 😥 Am I being punished for going out two nights in a row? I am on the mend and I believe that within 2 days, 3 at the most I will be back to 100%. In other news we are finally warming up outside. Thanks for checking in.
