Mucho Lucha Libre

As we are enjoying some shrimp, fresh mango juice with a touch of hooch, and a beautiful sunset on Isla de la Piedra Sunday, Juan says to us, "Do you guys have plans Wednesday night? It's time you saw some real Mexico". Hell yes, sign us up!! So we meet up with him and Corrina last night, pile in the USS Ford together and head to the German Evers Center. It is Lucha Libre night! Talk about a colorful cornucopia of sights, sounds, and smells. Draft beer, kids in masks, fireworks, sabritos, fake blood, grandmothers screaming and shaking fists at wrestlers, it was one loud, funny evening. There was even a midget chupacabra! He certainly rounded out the lineup perfectly. The wrestler's acrobatics were very good and they worked the crowd into a frenzy by the end of the night. We had an excellent time, it was certainly an entertaining change from our normal activities.
