After we ate, I went back to the mall with Issac and Marcela. Isaac gets some very Metro shoes and Marcela gets a hot dress. While strolling around the mall, we had latina elves OMG!! I'm in lust, and the movistar girl, should have asked her to marry me ... but that is for another storey. Back to the house, Cristina had claimed my mamey, but generously shared it with all. I didn't realize how difficult mamey was to locate or I would have bought more. Marcella, Isaac and myself got cleaned up and off to a house party.
The house party was a traditional mexican party called the posada, we did one at Cristina's back when I dated Rosa, but not on the same scale. So every one consumes their beverage of choice with munchies initially, once all the people were there, we then much like a mass have a question response type event. One group of people heads outside (light) and the other group is inside. I was with light. We headed outside and closed the door. We knocked and sang our verse. The group inside sang back their response until we finally get to open the door and light a number of sparklers. Then we broke a piñata. There are pictures of me being one of the poles out there somewhere.
Finally Food, tamales and frijoles and tortillas and salsas oh my. Then a couple kinds of pastillas (cakes), and of course more drinking. The people were great, and while most of Marcela's speak english to varying degrees, but generally everything was in spanish, I got bits and pieces, and generally just soaked up the atmosphere. They eventually broke out the karaoke machine and a good time was had by all. I didn't recognize any of the music (surprise surprise) but I listened intentely and laughed at the performances with everyone else.
Caught a lift back to the hotel.
I'm in love with México, no doubt about it.
