Alan: Just before friend Tarantino sent this video I was telling a friend that during my 50 years "in and out" of Latin America it has always been clear to me that latinos understand -- in their bones -- that our real mission on earth is to celebrate life.
We güeros on the other hand have fallen under a bizarre spell that represeents life as endless labor.
In 1988 and '89 I lived and worked in Nicaragua.
Although "Nicas" always welcomed us to the parties, they really didn't start dancing until we went home to "get a good night's sleep."
Then the stops came out and they danced until dawn.
Latinos will "rest when they're dead," and not a moment sooner.
