It’s Cinco de Mayo in the US and in Mexico it’s May 5th and a Saturday. There are parades and taco eating contests in the states that border Mexico, but in Mexico – crickets, because it’s not a holiday.
But I’ll take the tacos, and enchiladas and the carne asada the guacamole, because I love all of that. There are parts of the US where finding quality Mexican food means you cook it yourself. When in Washington DC, I found that the Mexican restaurants were all populated by immigrants (legal/illegal) from El Salvador. And the Mexican food sucked because it was actually El Salvadorian food.
