The last few weeks where a little frenetic, tiring, and stressful. Every day is usually like this when you are a dancer since it is such a demanding profession. After five weeks of dancing Swan Lake at the Chapultepec forest, the season ended with an unexpected rainstorm leaving the dancers unable to say good-bye to the stage until next year.
When a season is over there is a physical and phsycological release. This is the time to rest your body and mind in order to focus again in whatever is next. Sometimes this process can be difficult to achieve because we only have a couple of days to recover. Luckily this year we had some extra days off and could take a little vacation.
The destination was Acapulco, city in the state of Guerrero on the Pacific coast. It has a great national and international tourism tradition since the 1950´s. The truth is I did take advantage on relaxing and clearing my mind.
I got the chance to see the most beautiful sunset I have ever experienced. The sun looked pink almost fuchsia, even though it lasted a few minutes this was what I enjoyed the most on this trip. Nature can be so wonderful.
I feel guilty for not getting to know the city better but I guess I will have to come back. Until later Acapulco!
