Re: I'm Just Going to Leave This Here

Joel Roberts Poinsett was the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. He also set, under the Monroe Doctrine, the first purchase intention for the then Northern States, preceding 22 years the U.S. - Mexico war. What may have appeared first in Google was that internationally, the Mexican native Cuetlalxochi...

Re: Snow in the Desert

We have been getting to 0° C and drifted occasionally to negatives here in the old Anahuac for the last 5 weeks... North Equatorial Atlantic Current has been weak so far this winter... Wonder its child, the Gulf current has been behaving...

Re: I'm Just Going to Leave This Here

Well, At least 45th has achieved something. We have been downtalked about since Poinsett, and the world took that lead. It hasn't been since the start of his campaign.

Re: Christmas Messages

Oh, well. Happy Panqutzaliztli to all of you...

Down here at the old Anahuac there was also a winter solstice festivity before the arrival of the Europeans and it was adapted by friars in order to evangelize the population.

We've spoken about "La Bamba" in another thread, every time I hear any version of it I remember myself taking a milk coffee sitting just outside of "La Parroquia" coffee shop in Veracruz Promenade looking at the Port while workers load new cars into Cargo Ships in the port over there...

Re: Celebremos

I didn't know that "Celebration" version... Not that it is wrong, just a bit weird, with those lyrics and the english speaking accent... About "Volare", I remember most the original version by Domenico Modugno, but the Dean Martin version is also very good... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DTo5aVL...

Re: what did i miss?

Down here "Gravity" movie was a real event... Because it is a Hollywood film directed by Alfonso Cuarón and photographed by "El Chivo" Emmanuel Lubezky, both Mexican born... There were endless "backstage" shows about it, about the Aningaaq scene, about the way "El Chivo" designed the display box to ...

I knew all along you were not in Texas, but when I looked up Anahuac the picture I posted came up first. It must have something to do with Google knowing I'm in the USA and not in Mexico. Odd as it might seem I live in a town with an Irish name, O'Fallon. One of the main streets is Mexico Road, whi...

Re: Venison sausages

Usually around here they are not alone, and there is one that handles all the cash, so the ones cooking or serving keep attending patrons, several use to have a water container (20 liters as a minimum) intended for hand washing.

Re: rodin museum

Glad to see the originals. There are other originals (i.e. cast from the same molds by the Rodin shop and signed by Rodin) at the Soumaya Museum, the publicly exposed part of the private collection of Carlos Slim. Here in México City. http://www.culturablues.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/41-13_Cult...
