On Saturday night we went out to a local cantina for some drinks. At first it was mostly men, but it soon filled up with other women and lots of mariachi singers!
On of my roommate´s coworkers hired these guys to play us some songs. I believe it was 4 or 5 pesos per song, and they have a list you can choose from. They were really good and super cute!
Singing her the Mexican birthday song, which is definitely not Cumpleaños Feliz, even though that is what I have always learned.
After they left our table, those two guys were in the cantina forever (they also gave us their business cards). They were really popular.
There were also numerous vendors who came in and out trying to sell us candy, flowers, little gifts, etc. Here are my roommates having fun with one of the colorful candy items (although it is not sweet at all and honestly tasted like the wafers you use for communion at church).
We had a lot of fun and it was a great first going out experience for me in Mexico City!
