It’s A Small World After All

December 14, 2008

Previously, I wrote an article for this Blog about our visit to a trout farm in Ixtlan de Juarez. The name of the family owned business is “Cauchirindo,” and its handsome owner is “Romualdo Pacheco.” Here is a photo of him with Geri Anderson, our traveler author friend from Oaxaca, Oaxaca.

Now, I had forgotten  about writing the article because I had gone onto other articles about other places UNTIL a comment was posted on this Blog by Don Romualdo’s granddaughter, Nathaly Pacheco.  She said, “That handsome senior is my grandfather his name is Romualdo  Pacheco. If you would like to go there again I recomend going this December.”

 
I can only say that her contact with me via this blog “out of nowhere” reminded me of the song, “It’s a Small World After All,” that I heard in Disney World in Florida.  It is simply amazing that two people who have never met (Nathaly and I) can find one another through two people who never met (Geri and Romualdo) until one rainy day on a mountainside over looking a historic center of Mexico. 

Perhaps you would like to join me in singing about this small world, BUT, I warn you, if you do, you will have a hard time getting the music and words out of your head the rest of the day!  Ok, here we go. The following video is in several languages starting with French and sometimes the language being sung doesn’t match the scenes, but its still a great video for the season.

And, if you must know the lyrics for sure, here they are —

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears
It’s a world of hopes, and a world of fears
There’s so much that we share that it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all!

It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small, small world!

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all!

It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small world after all!
It’s a small, small world!

Yes, as the song says, “And a smile means friendship to everyone,” and one can see it in the above photo of the two “handsome seniors,”  Geri and Don Romualdo.  And, we conclude with a “blessing” from Romuldo’s granddaughter, Nathaly, who proclaims to all —

WOW, YES, THE WORLD IS VERY SMALL, THANK YOU; WE ARE GOING THERE THIS CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS — Nathaly Pacheco, December 13, 2008 at 9:00 PM.
