Visita de mis Suegros

¡Hola! I hope everyone had an excellent celebration of Cinco de Mayo, better known here in Mexico as the Battle of Puebla. The date in May in the USA seems to represent Mexican Independence Day or Proud-to-be-Latino-day or Lets-just-drink-lots-of-tequila-day. In reality, the 5th of May is the date of one significant battle won in Mexico’s history. The significance to most Americans is lost, especially when you consider what would have likely occurred had the Mexicans not won the battle. Historians speculate that if the French won the battle in Puebla, they would have conquered Mexico and sent troops to the Confederates during our Civil War. Therefore,  potentially changing the outcome of our Civil War. America and Mexico have a much more co-dependent relationship than I had ever known or realized before my time here.

Anyway, here are some quick highlights from when my in-laws came to visit us here in Mexico!

Mexico City has little gems of art installations all over the place!

Hope you liked seeing a little bit of their trip. We had a blast and always love having visitors. We love sharing other parts of Mexico that just aren’t depicted very well in America. A very popular phrase here is: ¡Hay muchos Mexicos! // There are many Mexicos!

Keep on adventuring!
