Ok I seriously consider myself as a MEXICAN TABOO victim ...,,, everytime I travel ... everytime international friends ask me questions .....everytime I talk to people fIts almost sad to know that bad fame is created around mexican people ...... first all of the sombrero guys taking naps in the middle of the desert ... donkeys and never ending feasts of tacos and TEQUILA .... LOL im seriously laughing about this ...............
almost every single international friend Id known (except my spanish friends ) think of this as the reality and I find it really hard to explain to people the situtation of my country ..... so Im no one to criticise...... but
ome of the questions theyd asked me
1.- do you guys have cell phones in mexico ???
yes..... beautiful gadgets... blackberrys are popular
2.- SO how did you came here (USA, EUROPE , ASIA) ??
I booked a flight =) ....... OMG you guys have airplanes???... hmmm yes ....
where I come from ( Mexico City ) theres 2 international airports BENITO JUAREZ and TOLUCA
3.- OMG you dont look MEXICAN ??!! ... and you dont smell bad !!!!
... I dont wanna talk about races ... but here are percentages like 65 % of population are MESTIZO ..(european and Indigenous ancestors ) ....20% criollos ( european ancestry) ......10% pure indigenous( indigenous ancestry) and 5 % other ( Asian .. African etc..).. soooo In mexico Nobody cares whats ¨your race¨ (theres only one race in this world and thats the HUMAN race) ...... and baby I always smell good !!!
4.- SOOOO is Mexico City in New Mexico ( USA state) ??
No.... Mexico city is in Mexico as in THE Country .
5.- I guess everybody in MEXICO wear those big hats and Ponchos !!??... and of course ride donkeys
im from Mexico city and Id never seen someone wearing those ... only in The Independence day celebration ... Id never seen a donkey here outside of the ZOO ... the wildest thing youll find here are agressive overweighted PIGEONS ....
6.- OMG mexico must be really hot all year long !!!??
I live in Mexico city ... a valley 3000 m. over the sea level in the middle of the country were climate is basiclly the same all year long neither hot or cold ...
7.- Whats up with the swine flu ?
that was almost 2 years ago .... It was clarify that it was originated in Farms of the USA and blamed mexico for it ....massive vaccine shots were given to almost everybody ... they discovered that this new disease acts just like a common flu ...as any disease if you dont treat them properly you die ..... theres a cure .. and they already cured the patients infected and controled it ... world health organization retired the emergency about a year ago ...
8.- Do you have cars in Mexico City ??(trust me theyve really asked me this)
what do you think of this ??? .. I really dont have anything else to add
ps. One of the biggest problems of this city is that it doesnt produce it only consumes !!!! thats why not many people know about it .
