Poor Local Wedding
23 April 2012 | Marina El Cid, Mazatlan
While tied up at the dock waiting for repairs, we have been watching a BIG tent going up across from us on the opposite side of the marina entrance. This thing was clear plastic and two stories high. It had chandeliers and a huge stage erected. Colored lights were set up to shine across the marina to light up the boats.
As it turned out, it was a wedding for the niece of the mayor of Mazatlan. There were 450 guests some great music and the most spectacular fire works that we have seen in Mexico.
We heard that it costs about $50,000 to throw this shindig on. There is money in Mexico.
