Last Saturday, Alejandro and I took a trip downtown to do some shopping. We took a break and stopped at the downtown branch of “La Parroquia de Veracruz”, a chain of coffee shops which originated in that gulf coast city. While we were there, a young woman dressed in the traditional attire of Veracruz came out and danced around the cafe. Alejandro took this photo and video.
Later, as we were walking down Juárez Avenue, we came upon this young fellow performing on the street. He was also dressed in the typical garb of Veracruz and was dancing to “son jarocho”, the traditional music from that part of Mexico.
