Flamenco Guitar and Dancing at Instituto Allende

Tuesday 4/9/13 - Almost Midnight

Another delightful evening in San Miguel de Allende.  Renate and I had made reservations to eat dinner at Mi Casa, the lovely indoor / outdoor restaurant in the Instituto Allende.  This morning I invited Terri and Mike to join us; so the four of us walked there for a very entertaining evening of fine Mexican food, along with flamenco guitar music and dancing.

We arrived for our 7:30 reservation and were seated at the table right in front of the performance area

I'm ashamed to say that I have forgotten the name of the group; I'll find out and then edit this post to give credit to two very talented flamenco guitar players and two beautiful and talented dancers also.  I'd also like to find out whether the group is related in some way.  The two dancers could be mother and daughter - I'm just not sure.

            Both ladies were so beautiful to watch; flamenco dancing is flowing, fast, feminine,
                                                               emotional, sexy......

It was rather difficult to snap photos because of the fast action and I worried that the camera flash might be disruptive to their dancing.  They were fantastic.

     This snapshot doesn't do justice to the beautiful hand and arm movements.  In some ways
            the graceful hand positioning reminds me of Indian and Middle Eastern dancing

                    Here's the group one more time .... Renate, MP, Terri and Mike Church.
            Dinner was excellent.  Terri described a traditionally Mexican dish, a Chile Relleno Poblano -
            a poblano chile stuffed with a ground beef filling that also had raisins, chopped nuts, etc.  It had
            a slightly sweet taste.  The stuffed chile was dipped in batter and deep-fried; then it was plated
            and covered with a tomato cream sauce.  It was delicious served with rice and black beans.
            Others had chicken fajitas, beef fajitas and shrimp curry.  Each dish was thoroughly enjoyed.
            For dessert we each had a bite or two of Crepas Cajeta - cajeta is a dulce de leche (caramel)
            made with goat's milk.  Delicate crepes were covered with caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla
            ice cream.  Then chocolate sauce is dribbled over the top and around the perimeter of the plate
            the chef had written, in chocolate:  Mi Casa es Su Casa.... a delightful end to a wonderful meal.

                        The ladies taking a few minute sit-down in between exciting dances

This is the same scene as the photo I took the other day - this at night with no flash - of La Parroquia
