Planned by our friend Mike in honor of his brother Kevin visiting from Canada, each cantina was planned with precision for style as well as beer costs. Most where in Mike's general neighborhood which we do not know very well which made it even more interesting to us. In our group was Carlos and I, form the US, Mike and Julia as well as his brother Kevin and girlfriend Lisa all from Toronto, Mattias from many places though originally from Holland, one Aussie and another Canadian couple. Truly an international crowd!
We missed the first stop (La Sabosa at Calle 54 by Calle 53) as our solar installation ran late. This is a story for another blog posting. However we caught up to the group at Cantina El Provenir at Calle 53 at Calle 52. The crowd was loud and the music was even louder. The bartender was so happy to have a big group he kept giving us money to play really really loud music on the juke box...and most of it was heavy metal. Here the beers were cheap, cold and plentiful. After several buckets it was time to head for the third cantina, The Carlotta, just several blocks away.
At the end of the night the group was talking to horses...and me...well I was the designated driver to get home so it was diet coke for the whole night!
