That night they danced Jalisco, Chihuahua, Veracruz and Puebla (Jalisco with the China dress - the same colorful China I wrote about on week 12 in "The Tale of Two Chinas"). Although Richard's partner was a little nervous, she did an awesome job. She was very excited to dance in the china dress. She had never danced the Jarabe Tapatio in a China and/or as a solo couple on stage like that before. I could tell that this was very important and a special moment for her. Her reaction caused me to think and realize that there was a cultural connection happening that I don't fully understand or can relate to entirely. Although I have mentioned culture in my blogs before, I think it had been down played as I am a visitor here in this journey.
