... folk dance and music show in the evening, sometimes even included with the price of the meal and drinks. We managed to find one with a free show which was about to start as we arrived, so we nabbed one of the tables at the front and sat down to a meal of tasty beef and llama 'empanadas' (equivalent of a British cornish pasty but slightly different) and a few beers...
