Bars and nightclubs throughout South America: Dance or die
The South American countries all have one thing in common. They love to dance. There are many types of different music (although most of them sounded the same to me)
You will find that in nighclubs the locals nearly always dance in couples facing each other. Never facing the DJ! Occasionally a Western/European techno track will come on and the dancefloor will clear. As soon as that strummed, salsa ryhthym returns so do the people.Related to:
Huayno or not Huayno ?
How, but, how can they listen to this music ??? The typical music from Peru, the Huayno, is a sort of limping music, really slow, hardly animated by some "ASI !" ("like that !") or "ESO !" ("That's it !") shouted by the instruments players, while the singer (generally a woman) is painfully trying to tell you a sad story about someone left that will come back... I don't like, will you ?
Comment, mais comment font-ils pour ecouter cette musique ? Le son typique du Perou, le Huayno, est une sorte de musique lancinante, super lente, parfois animee de "ASI !" ("comme ca !") ou "ESO !" ("c'est ca !") cries par les joueurs du groupe, tandis que la chanteuse (generalement une femme, donc) fait souffrir sa voix aigue pour vous parler de quelqu'un qui est parti, qui reviendra peut-etre, mais on sait jamais... Moi, j'aime pas, et vous ?
Dress Code: When in a bar in Peru, if Huayno is played, it means that you're lost in a typical place !!
Si vous etes dans un bar au Perou, et que vous entendes du Huayno, c'est que vous etes perdus dans un endroit bien typique !!Related to:
Vista Arroyo. On a hillside...
Vista Arroyo. On a hillside about 3000 feet up above the city of Caracas, the city lights look beautiful. This Restaurant seats about 500 people comfortably and the service is instant. Live marangue music fills the air. In the center isle, about 20 feet wide and 200 feet long they run show horses up and down the length of the restaurant. The party went on until 5am.
Dress Code: Dress like you mean it when going out in S. America. People take their nights seriously cause they last on into the next day. Then its breakfast, shower and back to work and no sleep. I was on vacation and I could'nt keep up.
Names, I do not remember...: Names, I do not remember...
The nightlife was great. In one club, they gave you a beer as you walked in the door which was included in the prices of the club which I believe was between 5 &10 U.S. dollars. The clubs were not very different from the clubs in the United States. The music was slightly different because there were popular Spanish songs being planned, but there were many U.S. top 20 songs that were also played. The atmosphere was not much different from U.S. clubs either. This may have been because the majority of the patrons were foreigners, but there were many locals there as well.
Dress Code: There was a wide range in dress for the clubs. Because the locals were much more dressy in typical club wear than the foreigners who wore tennis shoes and t-shirts.
