Life Is a Beach

There were plenty of Margaritas to be had in Cabo San Lucas. Enough to last a lifetime. Not to mention the cervezas. Pacifico, Dos Equis, Sol, and Corona. I imagine they ship by the truckload every second of the day. The bottlers could not possibly keep up with the demand. It is pure miracle, the fairy dust kind. And tequila? How is it not a trip to Mexico without tequila? Don Julio, Patron, Tres Generaciones. They all come in three distinct choices, anejo, blanco, and the local favorite reposado. Just thinking about tequila makes my head hurt. Good thing we waited till our last night to have some. And we managed to share that time honored Mexican tradition of sipping on tequila with new found mexican friends at the salsa bar. Hemingway would have been proud. 

We met our new friends, Hector and Rebekah, at the sunset cruise. After some cordial chatting we decided to extend our evening together by going to Sammy Hagar's bar, Cabo Wabo. It was filed with gringos and a gringo cover band playing typical rock songs that gringos like. We knew this was not our scene, so we moved to Bar Arriba, apparently a local favorite with nightly salsa dancing! The men and women moved gracefully and sensually, shaking their hips and stepping from one end to the other effortlessly. When the live band came on, we also joined the mix of latin lovers and danced the night away. 

That is how we ended our honeymoon in Cabo: with new friends, some fine tequila, and salsa dancing.
