Time for a little more culture.
We met up with Vic and Roberta of "Apollo II" (another catamaran) at the music stage for some Carnaval music.
First the mariachis!
Who were great.
I was just about to take a few pictures of them but unfortunately the mariachi man on the end fell to the stage.
He had been dancing around a little and we all thought his fall was a joke.
It was not a joke.
Apparently he had a heart attack.
A couple of gringos went up and started cpr, but quit after a few minutes.
Jim and Vic were off getting beer and didn't even see it happen.
When Vic returned, Roberta and I (who were both in the midst of freaking out) explained what was going on, so Vic (a retired cop) went up to continue cpr and help out.
Finally the police arrived.
But it was too late.
Pretty heartbreaking to watch...
Apparently the show must go on, so we were treated to some traditional ballet folklorico with all the lovely costumes.
And some incredible rope tricks!
This act was great!
It was kind of hard to really enjoy the show.
But we were thinking more of the other mariachis and their families...
