Photographic Adventures in Paradise
We were invited to a birthday party given by Barry Ivan White at his home for his friend and fellow entertainer Betty Melendez last week. It was Betty’s 88th birthday. She is a Mexican movie star and long time songstress that still entertains both in Cancun and Las Vegas. She spends about 6 months in each of these cities. The following is a film clip from a movie she starred in 1962 at age 33.
The following are some of the pictures from the party.
This special day was filled with a dish to pass from each of the guests, cake, ice cream, singing by Barry, Betty, Cynthia Morningstar Davis, and others. Guests present were from 6 different countries. The conversation was vigorous and the commaradere wonderful. The guest of honor enjoyed her special day immensely. Cancun is a very special place where this kind of gathering is common among friends that live here. Come and enjoy the fun.
This event took place on Feb. 3,4 & 5th., Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
This the second of two outdoor food courts here in Cancun. It is named El Deck. It features quite a few trucks each specializing in a different type of food. Many varieties from burgers and fries, Japanese, Uruguayan, and Mexican among others. A special treat was live musicans starting at 9PM. This time a local band called ¨Troya¨. We met with our long time friends and fellow CENOTE HUNTERS, Al & Louise from Canada.
Drinks are served by a wait staff. Your table is numbered, and when you choose your truck and order your food you just give them you table number and they bring it to your table when it is finished being prepared.
If you have a chance try El deck you´ll enjoy good food and service while enjoying the music.
