I Love the Sound of Huapango in the Morning

Huapango: the bastard child of flamenco and yodeling. This kind of music is best sung by teenage boys on the voice-cracking cusp of maturity - preferably with a deviated septum. Here's a little snippet of a middle-aged man and his 11-year-old wife dancing in Plaza Constitucion - the soon-to-be-home of the Dancing Fountains!

Sheer genius. (This guy's entire YouTube channel is worth a look, by the way.)

I can't wait to visit again! I am already practicing the very intricate footwork, and the music.....what can I say?
