NEXT DESTINATION? We are here for a while
Today was another easy day around here. We did get some exciting news today which we will share with you on Monday!! I know, I know, we can't wait either!!!! So because nothing happened until evening, I didn't take any pictures of nothing in the afternoon! So lets just move right to the evening. I took a walk into town to check the carnival. This Carnival is not for tourists but rather for the local Mexicans. Now because I am nieve, I just thought it would be a couple taco stands with a couple vendors. Well was I surprised. They had a stage set up that was similar to the ones they set up for rock concerts and stuff back home. They had an awesome kiddy midway, and a whole bunch of games of chance. Lots of lights and music going on.
There were lots of other games as well. A popular one was the break a beer bottle. You paid and got 3 rocks to throw at glass beer bottles on a rack. Behind them was some tin sheets which made the most awful racket when hit with a rock. If you broke a bottle, you got a free beer!! It seemed that about 1 in 3 people were winning so it was popular.
I tried one where a guy mixed up some 6 sided blocks and matched them against the tiles on the table. If you had your money on a matching tile you won 3 times your bet. Of course I lost!!!
The main stage was just getting going when I headed for home. I will leave the dancing up to the Mexicans, and oh how they love to dance!!
