The covered bar area at Playa Azul beach.
Some of the dancers. The lady in the black top and jean shorts is Laura who is a big promoter and teacher of salsa.
Some of the people who were doing the cuban group salsa dance.
Another of the group dance.
Since salsa should be seen in video, here is a link to a youtube video I posted of this group dancing. I don't know how to make it "clickable" so you'll have to copy it and paste it into the address bar of your brower.
After the salsa dancing ended, we went into town for dinner. I had a hankering for Chinese so we headed for Chi's. It was closed (Sunday 7pm). So we decided to go to Wet Wendy's (also closed). So we next went to Plaza Leza on the square. I have always liked their Sopa de Limon. It was still great.
I was really into enchiladas in mole sauce this week so I had some here. It was also great.
During the meal a couple young guys were doing something that looked like breakdancing with fire. (It might have been the same guys from last night that the dog chased away.) They were entertaining and we tipped them when they came around with their bucket. We had arranged to meet Bernardo at 9pm (after the 8pm ferry arrived). He didn't show up so we waited for 10pm , but there wasn't a 9pm ferry. He ended coming in at 11 (on the 10pm ferry) and walked back to the condo. While we were waiting for him we hung around the plaza. The Banda Cuzamil group was playing.
Aquino (the dark cuban guy on the left) was jamming good.
The percussion section.
And the horns.
Monday morning was the time for the dive training for Bernardo and a refresher for Doug. We met Pancho at the Caleta about 10am and did the training. Pancho checking over Doug's gear while Bernardo looks on.
Miguel and I waiting in the boat while they did their practice dive.
Then we went for lunch at La Hatch. We had burgers and fries.
The normal pre-meal chips and salsa on the second floor/balcony area at La Hatch.
A view over the balcony to one of the small dive boat piers.
Then back to the marina for a 2-tank afternoon dive. We did some shallow dives at Chankanaub and Paradise. Since I had killed my camera the previous Friday, Pancho let me borrow his for the dive. Here's one of me.
And one of Bernardo on his first dive.
And the tres amigos at the end of the day.
Then back to condo to clean up and out to Pancho's for dinner. He, his wife, and his aunt had spent Sunday cooking Pozole Rojo. It was a great soup with shredded chicken and pork in it.

I drink to forget, but I eat to remember.... so it all balances out
