Weekly Photo Challenge: Mariachi Culture

At the end of the Februrary 2013 SIT TESOL course at Centro Espiral Mana, our dear Mary Scholl surprised us with this fun gift. :)

Mexican traditional folk music sang by Costa Ricans in Costa Rica, for a group of teachers from all over the world? I think this stands the test of the Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture.

A song for Chile

Here they are singing a song for our Chilean friends. They had a song for almost all the countries represented at the Costa Rican centre that day: Chile, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico (of course), Guatemala, Panama, Peru and even the USA. I think Poland and Canada were the only ones they weren’t prepared for. Maybe next year!

"Where are you from?" "Canada." "Where in Canada?"  "Nova Scotia." "Hmmm...I don't know a song from Nova Scotia."
“Where are you from?”
“Canada.”
“Where in Canada?”
“Nova Scotia.”
“Hmmm…I don’t know a song from Nova Scotia.”

    1. It was amazing! The energy was incredibly moving. I’m glad I finally got a chance to share the pictures. The face shots were my favorites. :)
