En México hay una flor que se llama <<toloache>> en el idioma nahuatl hablado por las aztecas. La flor es muy especial porque está utilizado en las pociones de amor. Este viernes pasado fui a un concierto gratis ubicado en <<Fig at 7th>>. Un grupo mariachi de la misma nombre estaba dando un concierto. Este grupo está compuesto completamente de mujeres de todas partes de América Latina y tocaron/cantaron muy bien. Una de sus rendiciones me encantó era una versión mariachi de <<Team Spirit>> por Nirvana. También como Tejano me encantó que tocaron un poquito de <<Como la flor>> por Selena. La canción bajo no es uno ni el otro pero era la única grabé antes de que mi teléfono se apagó. ¡Disfruta!
Are you wanting to practice the Spanish tradition of eating grapes for the New Year? Here is a video of the countdown at the Puerto del Sol located in Madrid, Spain!
I ran the Day of the Dead Run and had a blast. It will be back in Mexican Town (Southwest Detroit) again next year so keep an eye out for it, I believe it is always the first Saturday of November. I will try and upload a photo or two later but here are the links to two videos that appeared on ABC 7 news! If you go to 1:56 of the first video you can see Sr. Sorrells in a light blue hoodie doing a Zumba warm-up before the run. The second video shows some cool Day of the Dead make-up donned by some Detroiters. :)
Mexico celebrates El Día de Los Muertos on November 1st and 2nd. If you and your family are interested in observing some traditional costumes in a non-traditional way, there will be a 5K El Día de Los Muertos Run in Southwest. If you choose to participate, you are encouraged to wear traditional costumes but perfectly welcome to wear every day running gear. After the race, runners can explore Mexican Town and grab a yummy bite of Mexican food to eat (I suggest Lupita’s Taquería as an option, it is cash only but very reasonably priced and yummy for a snack!).

Although I am not Mexican, I am a huge fan of Mexican cuisine! Today would be a wonderful day to visit an area like Southwest Detroit to "probar" (try) some yummy food! Below is a video clip from 2010 of El Grito de Dolores. A battle cry done every midnight in Mexico to honor those who helped initiate the revolution that earned Mexico it's independence!
Some Spanish-speaking friends and I visited Arts, Beats & Eats on Friday to watch Flamenco dancing on the International Stage. Keep an eye out for "La Chispa" when they return to Royal Oak next year. The performance is free to watch after entry into the festival and great exposure to Spanish dancing you generally won't see this side of the Atlantic!
"The unification of the kingdoms of Castile and Leon under the Reyes Católicos (Catholic Monarchs) Ferdinand and Isabel, along with the rise of the Spanish Empire, solidified the place of Spanish among the top three languages spoken in the world." - SpanishDict.com
Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera were two phenomenal artists. Frida painted beautifully her innermost thoughts regarding her tragic accident and tumultuous relationship with Diego; he on the other hand painted murals to evoke social change and stills of everyday life. Copy and paste the link below to find out about the exhibit coming to the DIA this March!
