7 de junio Freedom of Expression Day in Mexico

Not being one to turn down an offer for a celebratory breakfast, I was pleased to be able to recently sit alongside many figures from local press agencies – from print, online, and radio – to honor Freedom of Expression in Mexico.

De rápido con Jimmy Maldonado

Se corrió la noticia de que un rocaportense había ganado un concurso de cortometraje en Cd. Obregón, y no fue sino hasta un día que me lo presentaron en una cafetería que recordé el hecho. Jimmy Maldonado. Estaba hablando con Nina sobre la muestra de cortometrajes cuando entró Jimmy como ráfaga y se había ido como tal. Fue Nina quien me ayudó a hacer la conexión entre el ganador del concurso, Jimmy Maldonado, y la persona que justo había estado ahí, preguntando sobre cómo sería la exhibición de su corto; el corto ganador. Me puse en […]

International Day of Biodiversity 5/22

Throughout May we celebrate Mothers, teachers, and students, as well as biodiversity! In 1994 the United Nations proclaimed May 22nd as International Day of Biodiversity, thanks to concerns for our planet and to raise awareness and knowledge of its importance. Mexico itself signed a BioDiversity Agreement in 1992, ratified in 1993, thereby taking on an […]

Día del Estudiante 5/23

Among the many celebrations and days to honor members of society in Mexico, May 23rd is set aside as a day to recognize students – el Día del Estudiante. Students –full of life and wondrous ideas, who often dress differently or audaciously, and who at times we see outside of everyday life. Nevertheless, students are much […]

Día del maestro 5/15

How about a day for teachers? They also deserve to be honored for their arduous educational and influential work. In Mexico the request for such a date did not go ignored given that teaching requires patience, will, strength, and above all vocation, so it was not long before a perfect date was selected to celebrate […]

Madre mía! ~ Graciela Serna Grijalva

Tanto han dicho de ti, ya los poetas ¿Qué puedo yo decirte, madre mía que en mis palabras pobres e incompletas no fuera repetirte:¡ Madre mía! ¿Qué puede concebir mi mente inútil que no resulte poco a tu valía si en mi triste existencia todo es fútil y tú sólo eres luz, Oh madre mía? […]

5 de mayo Battle of Puebla

It’s curious to see how on the US side of the border, 5 de mayo is celebrated on such a grand scale, and yet for those of us who live in Mexico – well, except for those in the state of Puebla – it is simply another festive day (and a day off sometimes when […]

3 de mayo ~ Día de la Santa Cruz

As you may recall, in Mexico there are many festivities linked with religion and others (more official and not always as colorful) that have to do with the building of Mexico as a nation. Following Labor Day (May 1st) we now come upon 3 de mayo, the Day of the Holy Cross (honoring bricklayers and […]

Día del Trabajo ~ Labor Day 5/1

While in the US Labor Day falls at the end of the summer, in Mexico, as in other parts of the world, it is celebrated on May 1st. It’s an official holiday and, as on many other occasions, there is often a “long weekend” (bridge) somewhere in there for some (and particularly schools with Children’s […]

Día del niño ~ Children’s Day 4/30

Caramel is wafting on the air, “chamoy” (a traditional spice for candies in Mexico) can be felt around town, supermarket boxes are dressed as presents, candy appears to be holding a contest for best dressed and there are insistent ads for toys on TV…what’s going on? It’s not Christmas. Nor is it a second chance […]

El día de la Tierra  22 de abril

En varias regiones de Estados Unidos, México y el mundo, ya se están organizando eventos para festejar y conmemorar el 22 de abril, un día que nos concierne a todos: El día de la Tierra. Es importante mencionar que CEDO celebrara un dia de la familia en honor al dia de la tierra, el sabado, […]

The Chef Mickey experience

Honestamente yo no me declaro una persona con la virtud de cocinar, se me quema hasta el agua del café… y el pan para sandwiches. Es por eso que me quedé de una sola pieza cuando invitaron a la clase de cocina. “Oh cielos” Pensé “En la que me acabo de meter, por decir que […]
