(It’s May 5th.)
Little known fact…5 de mayo actually is NOT Mexican Independence Day. Many Americans don’t know that. It was actually a battle fought in Puebla (woot, woot) between the Mexican and French armies. And…Mexicans don’t even really celebrate it. haha.
Most of my day was spent running last minute errands because tomorrow, I’m going to MEXICOOOOO!!!
It’s been 6 months since I’ve seen Yuyo…6 MONTHS people! That’s the longest we’ve gone without seeing each other. Needless to say, this trip is waaaay overdue. Plus he’s in a new place! Monterrey!
As you can see here on this lovely map of Mexico, Puebla is just east (and a little south) of Mexico City. If you find Mexico City and follow a straight line north, you’ll eventually hit Monterrey. We’re talking a whole different part of the country here. Climate, food, everything!
