Clowning Around

Mexicans, for the most part, LOVE clowns! You can find clowns wherever you go. Birthday parties, grocery store promotions, street corners, anywhere! I think my favorite ones are some on a television program that take popular American 80's songs and rewrite the lyrics in Spanish, making them silly. They are dressed as a rock band with crazy colored hair and silly clothing. I also like the guys who juggle in traffic at the stoplights for money. Sometimes they do gymnastics and juggle firesticks. I don't mind giving them a peso or two for their efforts. At least you aren't bored while you wait for the light to change.
