Valentine's Day

February 2017 - El Quelite Mexico

I posted our outing on Saturday to the town of El Quelite here. We went back on Tuesday, Valentine's Day for breakfast and were treated to a show.

First, more from the restaurant. I'll have a few more to show in Friday's recap post.


















The tables are set up for a tour group to see a show and have lunch. No worries, we'll have ringside seats thanks to Bill.


The tour group were getting a walking tour so we kind of attached ourselves loosely to them. They were armed with a photographer, and a drone.

This is the dancing horse waiting.

Performing for the tourists.


Entering the restaurant.



Bill and John place some chairs on the floor for a better view. Thanks, Carol for this priceless photo.


Oh, you mean the show????










Centuries ago they performed the Danza del Venado in full deerskin clothing with a bow and arrow. The deer is also representative of Mazatlan as Mazatlán is a Nahuatl word meaning "place of deer.





















An eagle.



The horse does a final dance. The tour group is sitting on the balcony behind that railing.


What a treat and we didn't pay anything for the show.


Show's over and John is photobombing my photo.


Looking back towards the restaurant, the entrance is by the horse.

  10. I love this colourful town. You were lucky to catch a free show with your meal. I would personally be happy to just have authentic Mexican food (not much where I live).
