I wrote mid-week that so far this busy week had been good and then it suddenly went "downhill" yesterday and today - partly my fault and partly not my fault.
I must have read the article about the event last night in a stupor or something as I thought that the Pan American race cars and drivers were going to be at the event and I wanted to see the cars.............so I go to this thing with my friend who is in town visiting and it was just a margarita tasting contest...........I don't drink tequila! Yes, I admit that it was for a charity so all was not lost but we left after about an hour...........I sure wish I had that original article to reread to see how I could have gone so wrong!
But, I salvaged my disappoint about that by reminding myself that the Gueleguetza was this evening and I would be seeing the beautiful costumes and the dances and the gifts they would throw into the audience...........then I got a call this morning from someone I had convinced to buy tickets to see this and he said there was a "snafu" and the whole thing had been cancelled.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
I would bet that the people coming form Oaxaca didn't get the money from the ticket sales early enough to make the trip from Oaxaca - there were to be artisans and at least 25 performers with all their costume changes etc. I don't really know but they are such honorable people that I know they wouldn't cancel unless there was something of catastrophic proportions.
"Go with the flow" HAS to be the motto in Mexico or life would NOT be fun at all!
We'll see what tomorrow brings............ha!
