Mariachis In The Square

Expect The Unexpected

Mexico is full of surprises. When you're traveling there - really traveling, not sitting on a beach sipping a Corona - keep your camera handy, or you'll miss some amazing photo opportunities.

Marichis In The Square - Mexico City

Take these mariachis, for example. I was walking down a plain looking street in Mexico City one afternoon when I turned the corner and found myself in the midst of upwards of a hundred mariachis congregating in out of the city's larges squares. It was one of those moments when you question what your eyes are telling you.

What were they all doing there? They weren't performing. One of the mariachis told me that they had assembled there that day to work through some sort of labor dispute. I'm not sure if that was the straight story, but it was there story, and I am passing it along to you.

Mexico is full or surprises.
