  1. Be still my heart! What I wouldn't give to be able to shop there... http://www.latimes.com/features/food/fooda...0,2952996.story
  2. This is a geographical (read: non-political) thread, looking at the border between the USA and Mexico: Personally, all I know of the border is Tijuana and Juarez. "Borderline" by Laris Karklis et al on washingtonpost.com
  3. Mexico is a federation comprising 31 states plus Mexico City. The "President of the United Mexican States" is Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-).
  4. Anybody been? I will be heading down there for about five days later this year. Recommendations much appreciated.
  5. Waitman and I will be heading south of the border for a work-related boondoggle in a couple weeks and I'm curious if any of you folk have any sage eating advice. We will fly into Cancun, rent a car and leave immediately for the jungle to the west. We will be staying 2 nights outside of Valladolid at a small retreat in a Mayan village near Ek Balam. I think we'll eat one meal there and the others are up for grabs. Once we hit Playa del Carmen, we are staying at the Fairmount Mayakoba megagringoplex but are willing to cab or bus to interesting vittles for breakfast or lunch (unfortunately all di
  6. Do people honestly think that in 5-10 years, smugglers in Mexico *won't* have drones that could lift people over a wall, and then return to lift others? Everyone is so damned short-sighted. Drones will also be the drug-running agents of choice in the near future, if they aren't already.
  7. Luzia is the Cirque dul Soleil show that's in town right now. I've been to many Cirque shows. My favorites are the ones with incredible acrobatic feats (La Nouba in Orlando (now closed) and Mystere in LV Treasure Island). The more recent ones tend to rely more on the exploitation of little Chinese girls and not much else and thus are generally disappointing to me. Luzia is different though. It has plenty of acrobatics, but there's also a water feature that's pretty astounding. If clowns don't scare you, you should try to score some tickets for Luzia. Just be prepared to pay $12 for a be
  8. Maybe those rat-bastards are planning on using this to enter our country: "World's Largest Underground Cave Discovered" on news.nationalgeographic.com I guess it depends on your priorities, but to me, this is important stuff - click on that link, and read the article: Then, maybe click on a couple of other links there ... if you're on this website, by definition, you have nothing better to do. Just the first sentence of the article is enough to make you raise an eyebrow. That said, I strongly prefer wild-caught eyebrows to farm-raised. <--- That was funny.
  9. There's so much I could write about Mexico that it could fill a bookshelf, but right now, I'd like to highlight a map of their 31 states, just like I did for France. Here's a lot of information about the 31 states of Mexico. Anyone with a good general education should know all 31, at least by name. Considering Mexico's long and rich history, it's a bit iffy that I list them as "existing" since 1917 (read about the Mexican Revolution of 1910), but that's when their current Constitution was ratified, so technically, that's when the current country has its birthday. Still, if anyon
  10. Am considering going to Cabo in July -- has anyone been there at that time of year? Is it unbearably hot? Any suggestions for good restaurants? I've read about Charlie Trotter's restaurant there and some other high end ones -- what about more modest/local places? In terms of hotels -- am considering the Westin, Sheraton and Hilton, as being somewhat reasonable price-wise yet fairly deluxe -- don't want an all-inclusive place. Having a swimmable beach is also desireable. Wild and crazy nightlife is not what we're looking for. Overall, it sounds like a pretty expensive, touristy place, but I hav
  11. I will admit I know very little about art, but I do know, or think I do, I have discerning taste. Gallery Row in Lancanter Pa, certainly has a number of noteworthy galleries worth a visit from those outside the area. I am rarely blown away by a piece of art. Today I was impressed. A painting titled, Cervantes Dali, completely haunted me. To conclude my statement, being haunted by a composition of art is a good thing. .David Silvah, you are a master. This piece can be found at CityFolk Gallery on Prince Street. Priced at less that 2 months rent in the District can affor
  12. David Suro Pií±era of the agave advocacy nonprofit Tequila Interchange Project once again sounds the alarm on a troubling development in the Mexican government's regulation of agave distillates. Apparently not content with their domination of the profitable tequila market, the country's large industrial producers are attempting to insert a new catch-all category of agave distillates into the country's standards and norms regulations, apparently to force traditional mezcal producers to join their bloc or lose the right to even reference the terms agave or maguey on their labels. Article: "The
  13. Anyone been to and had anything good to eat in Cancun? Yes, I realize this is a silly place to go, but I'm still going and I'll be a lot warmer than I am in DC tonight...
