Christmas Carols

20 December 2007 | Melaque
Gabriellas grandpa
Greetings from festive Barra De Navidad. My good friends on the boats Adventure and Alaya took off yesterday for Zihuatanejo. They both have schedule to is going off to the South Pacific and the other to Florida. Now I have to find new's so tough out here. Yesterday I visited a fairly large town of 31,000 inhabitants called Cituatlan(see-wat-lan). I think I was the only gringo in the tow and it was refreshing not to have all the tourist trappings. Then I took the bus to Melaque for dinner and some Christmas carols at the all-denominational church. It is located in a cute palapa a hundred yards from the beach. Here is where my blog goes south...I have to get this off my chest and see what response I get...I think this Christian church by the beach has gone secular. We had print out of non-spiritual songs..about 23 of them. Then there was the Baptist hymnal. We sang songs like Frosty the Snowman and Grandma got ran over by a Reindeer and the like....while singing these songs the Pastors wife (who was leading the songfest) would say lets sing it again or another round of the chorus. Then the (few) spiritual songs out of the hymnal after singing the first verse she would say skip to the last verse....on every song out of the hymnal. I was a little more than miffed on this. Maybe I've been indulging into too much hot sauce.
