Mariachi Week March 6-16
The next thing we decided on for Thursday night sounded great, also- Mariachi Night at the Museums. My two favorite things- Mariachis and Balboa Park. How could it miss? Live Mariachis in the Mingei Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of Man, and the Timken Museum of Art. It was supposed to start at 4:00. We started at the Timken...no Mariachis, yet. So we went to the S.D. Museum of Man... no Mariachis. We walked around and saw a few interesting exhibits. The best of which was Native American art on ledger pages. Very interesting.
finally a performance. Not Mariachis but a wonderful Ballet Folklorico- put on by the DanzArts Organization. Beautiful costumes!
Then we (Nancy, Deb, my brother Bob and I) went to a Mexican Restaurant for dinner.
It was a slightly frustrating but very enjoyable evening.
The highlight of Mariachi Week was the first ever Mariachi Opera "Cruzar La Cara De La Luna".
