Faces of Mexico

We met so many warm and wonderful people in Mexico. Here are a few.

These little girls were helping their mother at the Mercado 28 Market in Cancun. I fell in love with them!

This gentleman sat next to my friend, Jo, on the local bus and began to serenade us. First song he sang (without knowing where we were from): "Sweet Caroline", the Red Sox Anthem. Small World!

This little guy was being carried through the market by his Mom . . . in the traditional way.

Meet Victor. He and his two friends sang for us at lunch one day. Although we may have been their first "Gig" in quite a few years (we recruited them from a park bench) , they were fantastic!

This is Victor's friend, Benny. He and Victor had beautiful voices, one a tenor and one an alto. Benny dragged this huge harp right into the restaurant to play for us!

Another photo of the sweet little girl we met at the Mercado. She told me the names of all of her animals in Spanish . . . el leon, el elefante, la vaca, y el perro.

Here are the faces of two old friends . . . we started teaching together in 1979!

And the faces of our hostess Claudia and her new friend, "Senor Frog".

Our waiters everywhere were terrific! 

At the Mayan restaurant we visited, Alison got her face painted . . .

While this guy danced with a skull on his head!

Afterward, we all got to try on a Mayan headdress.
Lola went first! 
And then it was my turn . . .


Which reminded me why I never thought I looked good in hats!
It's a good thing we can still laugh at ourselves . . .

aka "Carolina", my Spanish name!
