Last week Mark and I were in Cozumel for our annual dive trip. We have been fortunate to take vacations there for over 18 years. During that time we have stayed at the same hotel, The Galapago and now, The Scuba Club, and have become friends with many of the people there.
All the audience would sing a song.
Spanish: Dale, dale, dale. No pierdas el tino. Porque si lo pierdes. Pierdes el camino.Ya le diste una. Ya le diste dos. Ya le diste tres. Y tu tiempo se acabó.After the small ones took a crack at it, the older kids would step in to break open the pinata for it's candy. I found this to be particularly fun- so patiently the kids would wait for their turn but once it burst it was mass mayhem- everyone for themselves. All the children would dive to the ground (which was btw-concrete) grabbing candy as fast as they could! Heads bumped, fingers step on...no one crying...and they were having the best time! Each ending up with a pile of that precious candy!
English: Hit it, hit it, hit it. Don’t lose your aim. Because if you lose it. You lose the way.You hit it once. You hit it twice. You hit it three times. And your time is up.
When the party was closing down, our friend Raymundo, gave us a ride back to our Hotel. We had no candy (well ok- except for my husband) but we had big smiles on our faces and a warmth in our hearts that is only when you have shared a wonderful experience with people you love!
