As part of my continuing “Live Vicariously Through My Friends in Mexico” program, I wanted to alert y’all to some upcoming events in DF, Quintana Roo, and Hidalgo state that I thought may be worth checking out. Rest assured I continue to keep my finger on the pulse of kitschy activities despite my absence from [...]

I had an affinity for Mexican-themed decor at an early age, judging by this clay taco I just unearthed from my box of “Julie’s Elementary/Junior High School Stuff”.
For anyone wondering– no, this is not a rabbit poo taco. Those small brown pellets are obviously ground beef, accompanied by orange shredded cheese, thin pieces of green [...]
A very Happy Halloween to all those here in the US this evening! Today marks our official re-entry into Normal Life 2.0, as we arrived this evening back to Arlington, Virginia after 2 years and 3 months living in Mexico City. We’ve been on a 2700+ mile road trip starting in Denver, Colorado on October [...]
I would like to be the first to alert all you closet lucha libre fans out there that the 2010 Lucha Libre: La Experiencia will be taking place next weekend here in Mexico City! For anyone who missed this last year, you can get a full run-down of the excitement at my blog post from [...]
I scheduled a trip many moons ago to finally get back to Boston (where I lived from 2002-2006) to visit friends & hang around for Patriots’ Day, better known as the day of the Boston Marathon! I flew out of Mexico City on Wednesday at 9AM & got in last nite. Here are a few [...]

As I have mentioned before, John & I are lucky to have the “inside track” on all-things-lucha here in Mexico due to a) a friend who has been training to be a luchador + b) another friend who is a lucha superfan. So while some of you may be familiar with lucha libre souvenirs for [...]
Ok, so I’ve been a slug. Every now and then, I like to do a blog post outlining all the riveting topics I’ve been meaning to write about, promise you that I will actually write about them, and then never execute on this. Which sucks, because we have been some really amazing places in Mexico [...]
In the US, if you told me that there was a WWE convention going on next weekend, you can pretty much bet your ass that I wouldn’t be there. For whatever reason, though, professional wrestling in Mexico City = entertainment gold. Hence, I was all over Lucha Libre: La Experiencia, the lucha expo that came [...]
This photo of up-and-coming luchador El Matador protecting two of his young, swine-flu-avoiding fans made my day today. Join El Matador’s fan club on Facebook to be kept in the loop on all his crazy shenanigans!!
Now that I may have more free time thanks to finally FINISHING MY 2nd TERM MBA FINALS today, also keep [...]
