Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
Now, for serious. You cannot encapsulate everything that is the Mexican culture in one blog post. I'm not even going to try. I am really going to miss these days where the culture and the faith of the Mexican people really shine. It has been a part of my life since I can remember. I want my kids to grow up remembering the same things.
I guess I'll just have to do whatever I can to represent the *entire* country, all by myself, within our own little circle of friends and family over there in the Central/Eastern quadrant of the European Continent.
It's a good thing...
I am an expert at making paper flowers.
... downloading Mariachi music...
...and marrying men who are "conversationally proficient" in Spanish (well, I've only done that once but I got it right the first time so I think I can consider myself an expert).

BUT, PEOPLE.... PRAY,TELL....
What am I going to do without Mexican food?!?!
|The night my parents were married, 1978, they came directly from their wedding reception to this restaurant to eat dinner. 30+ years later, it still serves the best Mexican food in the world.|
P.S. I am totally researching the cost of sending tamales in dry ice to Krakow. You think I'm joking? Think again.
