May 5th


It's Cinco de Mayo in the US and in Mexico it's May 5th and a Saturday. There are parades and taco eating contests in the states that border Mexico, but in Mexico - crickets, because it's not a holiday.

But I'll take the tacos, and enchiladas and the carne asada the guacamole, because I love all of that. There are parts of the US where finding quality Mexican food means you cook it yourself. When in Washington DC, I found that the Mexican restaurants were all populated by immigrants (legal/illegal) from El Salvador. And the Mexican food sucked because it was actually El Salvadorian food.

Don't be suckered in by promises of "authentic" Mexican food at Taco Bell. And enjoy the day as best you can because Hillary Clinton is nacho president. There is a reason to celebrate.
