A tour through the National Theater

Here is a collection of pictures from within the Teatro. We had a very spunky girl tour guide who was over-the-top happy to be showing us the theater. When we got down to the main stage, I thought it was inappropriate of Will to ask her if they really have donkey shows at midnight.

The first one is a famous painting on the ceiling by Arturo Fontana of Milan in 1897. It features coffee harvesting and export. The painting is actually fairly inaccurate because coffee beans don’t grow on the beach. They grow up in the mountains where migrant workers eat plantains in the evening and then sing tunes about old mehico.
