One of the most amazing and beautiful dances in Mexico. Repost from @kamranonbike using @repostregramapp - The Dance of Flyers (La Danza de los Voladores) is ancient Mesoamerican ritual which originated in Mexico. It involves five participants (four dancers and a musician) and a tall wooden pole. The participants are dressed in colourful costumes and wear hats embellished with pieces of mirrors and long ribbons. After a ceremonial dance on the ground, they ascend the pole. Once at the top, the four dancers (voladores) sit on a square frame and tie themselves with ropes attached to the frame while the musician (caporal) balances himself in the centre and plays the flute and a small drum which fits into his left hand. After a while, the dancers launch themselves from the top backwards. As the rope unfurls, it makes the square frame rotate around the pole and the dancers appear as if they are “flying upside down”. The dancers gradually descend to the ground in circles and twist themselves upright just before landing on the ground.
"If you’ve never visited China, or have never ventured outside one of the larger cities, I know exactly what you’re thinking... this exists near Beijing?!? I felt the same way. To go from a city with air quality of 155 (not always, but this past week it was between 140 - 160) to driving less than two hours to this, nature on steroids, blew my mind. But it just goes to show you that Mother Earth prevails, always."

To remember and be remembered is the secret.
People always call me a “tiger mom” when it comes to Mochi and Taro which is pretty true. I can be demanding of my dogs and try to keep them extremely disciplined but honestly I’m POWERLESS to Mochi’s puppy eyes and his smile. The minute we make eye contact and he smiles at me it’s game over 😭. But he’ll never know that, must not show weakness lol
