Call Off “The Hounds of Zaroff” We Just Want To Play!

The blogosphere is abuzz with voices across Mexico defending their adopted country. I couldn’t agree more with the chorus of sanity. Don’t let the fear mongers get you down. And though I don’t know what will happen tomorrow I can say for today that the United States of Mexico has not failed, narco-banditos are not [...]

Not to Get All Queerbones About it or Whatever…

Regardless of what you think of California’s passing of Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment banning all state-sanctioned civil marriage agreements between two people whose only crime was that they happened to be of the same gender (for our take on this argument, see this post), what has become crystal clear in the last few days, [...]

One Glove or I Heart Your American Hits

Last night we put on our city pants and went to town for a little diversion. We decided to see the big budget blockbuster I am Legend, starring Alfonso Ribeiro’s incomparable foil, the always fresh Will Smith. In Mexico, the Spanish title is typically didactic, Soy Leyenda: El Ultimo Hombre En La Tierra No Esta [...]

RSVP Now for the “Latin American Blogger Meetup”

We missed this before, because we weren’t tuned in to Cancun Canuck‘s blog until today, when we were both featured in the same newspaper article. But they’ve got a great idea, and one that we all should’ve been doing a long time ago: A Latin American Blogger Conference. Many of us only know each other [...]

Our Renoir Wedding Reception

Jillian’s aunt pointed out that our raucous wedding reception at the Mambo Cafe in Merida resembled a modern-day drunken Mexican Renoir painting…more specifically, his 1881 Luncheon of the Boating Party. You be the judge:
