-We will meet in one of the most iconic places of Tijuana's Revolucion "El Arco de Tijuana" (The Arch by Revolucion Ave). -On or way to the workshop (3 blocks) we will have the opportunity to see the architecture of a once iconic Piñata structure that used to house a big restaurant and museum; Mexitlan. -Once in the workshop we will meet Mr. Ortega and his family; the piñata artists and instructor. They'll give us a brief introduction on the history and process of piñata making. After this we will star making our own piñata! -Part of the Piñata tradition is to celebrate in a "fiesta" so we'll provide music, traditional Mexican candy, snacks and beer to make of this experience something unique. -To finish the afternoon we walk towards "Cine Tonala" a concept that offers independent cinema, gastronomy and artisan mixology on an amazing terrace overlooking the heart of the city where you will enjoy a local beer.
My name is Emiliano I'm a Mexican artist and photographer. Born and raised in this diverse border city that has opened my eyes to different cultures that's particular to the San Diego/Tijuana community. I have 5 years of experience providing alternative and out-of-the ordinary adventures in this unique playground that is Tijuana. Living traveling and meeting different cultures has given me the opportunity to understand and make a connection with the people who visit this interesting city. Mucho Gusto!
