Mexican Charros in Guadalajara
Upon entry to the charreada, a specific type of Mexican rodeo, I was adorned with a long rope necklace attached to a shot glass. Before I could say buenos dias the glass was filled with tequila and a cowboy hat was placed on my head. The Charros strolled about the stone courtyard greeting people and tending to their horses. Charros are traditional horseman with a long line of family history. Every time I turned around that night there was a bottle of tequila filling the shot glass attached to my neck- thank God for autofocus! The next day I was treated to a visit to the families home for a deeper look into this culture.
