Suddenly, culture


First day, we are walking by the market street, colorful vibrant and delicious. And suddenly, I notice this poster by one of the entrances. It was a concert for Carmina Burana, with the symphonic orchestra from Oaxaca, the choir from the city and more harmonics.

I would have given anything to assist, but I had nothing fancy to wear for the trip, and info regarding entrance was never published. Rumors from people with touristic info. were that the city had already given tickets to the public. Oh well...

I think I wouldn't have minded, except that in one of the tours I took, I heard too late that a couple that left early were choir singers for the event. I got a lot more frustrated knowing I could have asked(begged) for entrance.
I still loved the poster.

  1. Aww damn. I had a Stone Temple Pilots concert I wanted to go to a nearly a year ago & someone told me they could get free tickets to any show at that venue. A co-worker told me the date of the show, then I told my friend to get me tickets for that day, he said there were no shows for that date, so long story short, the show was the day before I called for tickets. I punched the guy that told me the wrong date & almost got fired from my job. He apologized to me & told the boss he deserved it. ...And he did ( ¯ー¯ )
