  • CHARGE ENERGY IN TEOTIHUACAN?

    Every March 21 the archaeological zones of Mexico are saturated indiscriminately by people who think that on this date their spirits and bodies will be filled with “cosmic” energy because of the celebration of the spring equinox. This idea is based on the idea that the original inhabitants of these towns celebrated rituals on the occasion of this event. The truth is that in the prehispanic era the equinox of spring had very different meanings to those that today are intended to give. The pre-Hispanic worldview was very different, the life of the ancient Mexicans was intimately linked to the physical changes of nature and the consequences of them. Hence…

  • IS THERE RACISM IN MEXICO?

    As a good Mexican living abroad, specifically in Poland, I like to talk to my friends and acquaintances about how diverse and beautiful my country is.

The conquest, in 1521 of the original cultures of the territory that today occupies the great country called Mexico by the forces of the Spanish empire, caused an almost immediate fusion of men and women, of…

  • Mezcal is growing acceptance drink in Mexico

    Mezcal is a Mexican drink that quickly becomes more popular throughout the country and throughout the world. Its greater acceptance in all social and economic strata is, to a large extent, due to the fact that a large number of “mezcalerías” (places where mezcal is sold) have opened their doors in Mexico, which offer this drink in pleasant spaces within which you can have a good time with friends tasting the exquisite mezcal. Mezcal, like tequila, is a distillate of agave, although its flavor is very different. Until a few years ago this liquor was considered a drink for people of economically low class, however little by little it was…

  • 2019, intense start of the year for mexicans

    Mexico and Poland – Poland and Mexico. This 2019 began in Mexico with facts that have caused a great impact on the international media. Taking into account the complexity and greatness of Mexico, I dare to select only three events that took place in the first month of the year that begins, which from my point of view are the most significant. The first is political, the second occurred in the middle of the state of social decomposition and institutional corruption that exists in my country and the third belongs to the cultural sphere. 1.- Andrés Manuel López Obrador assumes the Presidency of Mexico.  Despite having competed and lost in…
