Singing at Los Ojos

I had quite an adventure filled day yesterday with mountain hikes, hot springs and dinner in a little restaurant and saloon “Los Ojos”. BAT was our entertainer that evening and sang hours of non-stop requests with gusto as his wife Brenda sat nearby mouthing all the words, taking pictures and tapping her toes with enthusiasm.

The evening took an interesting turn when BAT handed over his 12 string to anyone who felt like singing! There was only one other person aside from myself that felt like taking the mic, but it was a great time! So this is how I came to gain my first experience singing in a bar to a very small but enthusiastic group.

I felt the need to revisit this place with so much character so I sat across the street today and made some paintings. For more pictures of the place visit the Los Ojos website.
