Let the Good Times Roll

Saturday night was a "blast from the past"! Starting at 8PM and ending at 10:30 with "Goodnight Sweetheart", it was a shimmying, twisting rock and roll night..........WHAT FUN! As if the music and the dancing weren't enough there was a HUGE fireworks display with "oooohs and aaahs" and the sun setting behind the Parroquia in a red ball of fire. It was like a scene out of a movie.
Arte Vivo combines a flower shop and art gallery plus restaurant kitchen on the first floor and a restaurant on the roof terrace with a bar. The staff was "jumping and jiving" just trying to keep up with so many people and so many orders. Typically the place has salsa night with about 50 people there but this night there must have been 100, at least. Most eveyone was laid back about getting a drink and food, which in some instances took thirty minutes, but there are always a few who have to get their "panties in a wad" demanding immediate service. I tune those out, if possible............
As we all walked to the jardine afterwards just to see what was going on there, this total sense of contentment descended upon me and the great thing was I was aware of it.

By Cinco de Mayo - the fifth everyone was TIRED of partying and all the streets in town were empty. It was weird but you have to realize they had parties on the 30th, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th........no fireworks left!
