  3. I think NY must be fascinating for many reasons. You don't see (I don't think) anyone playing a guitar on our city busses.

    What fun! Were they any good?

  5. But I love mariachi music!

    Coming from such a small town, what I think is funny is the complete disinterest on the part of the other passengers!

    Great shot!

  9. An Odd place to find mariachi. I always think of at least four with very large guitars.

  11. I think that is so cool...what an uplifting way to head to work!

    But the passengers don't look too happy or is it that this is one of many weird things that happen on the NY subway? ;D

  13. I think I see a third at the end of the car! Actually I think I recognize them LOL

    and I LOVE the less than enthusiastic look of the passengers - I love NYers!

  14. Well that was nice! I've ridden the Marta train in Atlanta a few times. It was a real adventure for me but strange too. Everyone ignored everyone. My husband told me not to point and not to stare but I couldn't help it. lol
    The really shocking thing to me was that the train was real crowded and a young man got up and gave me his seat.

  16. How cool is THAT? I always loved taking the Metro in DC to get to work. Watching people was my favorite hobby. But being serenaded!

  17. it would be very nice to be serenaded on my way to work by a live mariachi band....
    but I guess I'd have to go work in NYC to do that. And to be a nurse in NYC? Um
    not sure I have the guts for it

  18. Oh, I love mariachi music (inmoderate doses) and want mariachis and bagpipes both at my funeral.

  19. All the passengers look like they are saying to themselves, "Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt."
    I myself, being from a small town in Canada would be so impressed.

    Bear((( )))
