10 de Mayo, Día de las Madres.

Today is Mother's Day in Mexico. It is always on May 10. So I want to wish all Mothers a beautiful day. Especially my mama.

I love you very much, and thank you for all the love you have given me. God Bless you, Mama!

My beautiful Mama, the yoga teacher.
This was taken yesterday.
Isn't she incredible?!
Te amo, Mama...

Cinco de Mayo

As most people who live in the U.S. know, today is a very famous Mexican celebration going on in many cities that have a high percentage of Hispanic population.

But what happens today in Mexico? Well, the most important thing that happens is that there was no school today. What else? Well, mmmm, nothing. Really, nothing. Except maybe in the city of Puebla, where the Batalla de Puebla was fought. And maybe some Northern states which have been influenced by the celebration of Mexicans in the U.S. This was a battle fought against the French invading forces, in which Mexico won. This celebration has nothing to do with Mexico's Independence. So there is really no 5 de mayo post as such. Sorry, nada!

But I will post some more photos taken in Dolores Hidalgo. And if you live in the U.S. and saw some kind of celebration in your city, I'd love to hear about it!

School children from another school visiting the city.
We saw at least five other groups there.

Typical house seen in many small cities in the state.

for tea. Guavas and plums.

And after sightseeing in Dolores, we went to Guanajuato.
This tunnel is the official entrance to the city.

Next post, Guanajuato. I'm sure you'll like that place much more.
Have a great evening!
