Usually on the Xochimilco Canals, the Mariachi bands ride boats and attach themselves to the tourists’ boats to perform for them. I think the Glee Club may be the first group to have ever done the reverse and docked onto a Mariachi band’s and sang for them instead. I’ll never forget their laughter as they sat back smoking cigars and being serenaded by the Glee Club. We sang our hearts out for a while before they untied themselves and waved us off, cheering the whole way.
