Baila Morena!

Tuesday's Independence Day also came complete with traditional dancing! Troupes of school-aged girls lined up, black-brown hair pulled back into buns flowing with colorful ribbons, to match colorful skirts that swirled like something every girl's dreams are made of. They swirled and twirled their way around stage, clapping and dancing, graceful and playful. Families, cowboys, workers, tourists, all gathered around el centro to watch. Teenage boys, in saggy pants and trucker hats, whistled and shrieked from the sidelines. It was beautiful.

hey Nic....not sure what email address you are using these days, so I thought I'd post a comment on your blog... I heard you were in Sayulita and it just happens that Becky & I will be arriving in Sayulita on the 25th for six days of surfing... hopefully we can meet up? It would be great to get in some surfing with ya.
-Pete

Don't know if you've been watching the news - WaMu just went under - it was purchased by JP Morgan.
