Mexico Information

Elections in a Small Mexican Municipality star
Mexico has a multi-party political system with the three major parties having the acronyms PRI, PAN, and PRD. In the municipality that I live in, local elections definitely take precedence over federal and statewide ones. To many of the citizenry there, it matters who is elected el presidente/mayor.

Bribes in Mexico star
Mexico is proudly home to many traditions like tianguis, festivals and celebrations, folk dancing, mariachi performances, and indigenous crafts. One national tradition that it should not be proud of is "la mordida"/the bite which is the institutionalized system of bribery in the public sector.

Cantinflas Mexico's Non-Confrontational Folk Hero star
Have you ever heard of Cantinflas? In Mexico, if you asked that question virtually everybody could proudly tell you who he was. Having starred in over 50 films, a brilliant social satirist, Cantinflas who is often referred to as "Mexico's Charlie Chaplin" has a permanent place in Mexican culture.

Celebrating Mexico's Independence Day star
Some people are under the impression that Cinco de Mayo is the day that Mexico celebrates its independence from Spanish rule. It decidely is not! 16 de Septiembre is Mexico's two day celebration of its victorious War of Independence and is the country's most honored and observed patriotic holiday.

Chinese in Mexico star
In the 1920s, the Chinese population in Mexico constituted, after Spaniards, the second largest immigrant population in the country. What were the forces that enabled that population to develop and what were the circumstances that (forcefully) led to its eventual decline?
