We were having a meal in restaurant Jaguar when some musicians came to join us with some Mexican music while we were eating.
That was fun,.. and because of that i payed him $ 5. (dont go to high in your prize cause they may think you are very ridge !)
Unique Suggestions: What happend was that these men (there were 4 of them) asked $ 5 from Frans, Leny and Peter so they had $ 5 each !
Fun Alternatives: Make a prize for the singing before they start to do so, or dont give them anything at all.
They dont make it funny anymore themselves, cause i dont think its a good idear to ask more money if you already got some.
We came into a garden when we walked off the 5th boulevard and saw a lot of birds in cages. We were not so sure about it, cause you could buy them. Well its not a good thing to buy a bird when you are on holiday, cause how on earth are you going to bring them home?
Fun Alternatives: Buy a wooden one...there are lots of shops who sell wood-craft !!
You have to prepare yourself for the sellers on the streets, they will almost pull you into their stores. Yeah, a kind of friendly but with every step you make there is an other seller who sells (wanna sell) you silver.
Unique Suggestions: Smile to the seller who wants to get you into his shop and make sure you dont get angry with him / her. The are (a kind of poor) and wanna sell their stuff, but its not so nice for us tourists.
Fun Alternatives: Walk with a lot of plastic bags and just say you have bought everything you want !
If you have something that needs to be sharged every day you need a plug to do that. And power of course....well.....if you see the picture you know why the power cuts off sometimes.
Unique Suggestions: Most of the Mexican people just make a whire from the electricnet to their house to keep the bills low. So if they have a fridge.....they need a whire...if they have a tellie...they need a whire...
Fun Alternatives: If you really need a full battery (for your camera, for your gameboy, or your shaver) you better make sure you have batteries with you or, for shaving, bring a nice shaveknife aswell.....better with then without !
