If there are religious experiences in my life, they come when I am face down in a plate of Mexican food, which we do about once a week as a more thankful act than going to church. I thank my lucky stars I'm a Native Californian and grew up with Mexican food and culture, too.
My husband's niece Sandy Fernandes singing "Viva Mexico" with Mariachi Colonial.
The white-haired lady with the balloons behind her was celebrating her 95th birthday!
Recorded June 7, 2009 at Los Portales restaurant in Visalia, California.
Sandy's got a heckuva set of pipes on her, and I think "Mariachi Colonial" roughly translates as "the 4th item on the combination plate". Enjoy.
