Legend has it a very beautiful girl from Sonora went to a party at a casino, despite her mother’s prohibition. She was willing to meet the most handsome young man in the city and fall in love. She did not dance with anyone until the most handsome man ever imagined appeared and took her out. They danced all night until she felt something burning in her waist and looked around. She noticed that all eyes on the track were on her and her partner. She was surprised, she looked at her gallant dancer and observes that her legs were not such. They were ram’s feet. She screamed in terror, they all sensed a smell like sulfur and everything burned. There are still screams in the ruins of the once luxurious casino. That happens to girls who do not listen to mom, but Sonora is anything but terrifying.
