Driving With Uncle Carlos to Maine
Posted by Ghenghis Khan
Last Friday, Uncle Carlos was driving a load of plants up to Skylands, our home in Maine. We absolutely love being with him and asked Martha if we could travel with him, instead of traveling with her. She didn’t seem to mind.
1 Now that the trailer is all packed, it's time to hit the road!
2 We could have traveled with Martha, but we like driving with Uncle Carlos. He has great taste in music.
3 Los Melodicos - La orquesta que impone el ritmo - They have 4 saxophones, 3 trombones, trumpets, piano, bass, drums and percussion, plus 4 Singers! That's about 20 artists on stage!
4 Franny, I'm told that they're THE MOST COMPLETE Orchestra in all of Latin America! They also have over 100 albums! Can you believe it?
5 I Googled the orchestra and found out Los Melódicos is from Venezuela and they've been around for more than 50 years. That's 350 dog years!
6 Carlos, let me help you with that CD! We can't wait any longer to get our groove on!
7 OMG, this is such good music! Little wonder Carlos has been a fan of Los Melódicos since he was a little boy in Columbia.
8 I should really start my own band, you know. Los Chow Chows, has a good ring. I do play a mean trom BONE!
9 And we're off to Maine! A loaded trailer, a full tank of gas, and enough Los Melodicos to get us through four states!
