It’s Cinco de Mayo!

Time for guacamole and margaritas…

and have a listen to the terrific Mexican duo of Rodrigo and Gabriela.  If you haven’t heard them play, you’ve missed amazing guitar.

A few of my own favorite pics from favorite places in Mexico…

Mientras dura, vida y dulzura… (This Mexican proverb means “while it lasts, life and sweetness” or while life lasts, make it laughter and molasses.)

Start today on the 5th of May!

  1. Wow, I loved Rodrigo y Gabriela! My daughter watched with me, said, “They’re dancing with their hands.”

    • Aren’t they great?! I imagine Gabriela’s hands feeling like the feet of Irish dancers after a performance!
