Last night, after supper, Robbie and I walked thru the resort and saw some people hanging ropes, testing laser lights and puffing out clouds of smoke from a smoke machine. And we thought, “A SHOW!”
So we pulled up a chair and waited.
We kept trying to guess what would be going on. R said pantomime, I said variety show….with pirates.
It turned out actually to be the funniest thing ever.
Part pantomime, part concert, part acrobatics, part history lesson in a rambling Spanish dialect of which we couldn’t understand a word.
There was an Aztec princess, some pirates, a conquistador or two, a random father dragged on stage who Robert swore was a plant, I didn’t think so, but it was a bit curious how he managed to dance the Gangnam style in sync with the comedian guy in leopard print.
There was a charming little something-oodle who chased and jumped and barked and played dead on key, and some amazingly strong acrobatics.
We really enjoyed ourselves, even if the Aztec princess sang like Minnie Mouse on helium. By that time the experience was so completely bizarre that it probably wouldn’t have mattered.
