************************************

May 1 is Mexican Labor Day, a legal holiday for schools, banks, and employees, but with no parades or public gatherings

************************************

May 3 is Dia de la Santa Cruz, which is also the patron saint day of the construction workers, a large and loud group in Ajijic. In Ajijic it is a minor fiesta day, meaning that construction sites will be having parties starting around noon featuring cohetes (noisy sky rockets), food, drink, and maybe some music, all of which is paid for by the owners of the project.

Altars with decorated crosses will be erected on these sites with large buckets of ice cold beer placed in front of them and offered up, and then, heartily consumed by the workers in the summer heat. This can happen anywhere where there is an active construction site. There is a friendly competition among the workers around town to see who can make the most noise as these very thirsty and hard-working guys get to blow off a little steam.

Mother's Day
Date: Tue, May 10, 2016
Mother's Day, which is always May 10 in Mexico, is somewhat of an unofficial national holiday, as the people lovingly honor their mothers and grandmothers, who are considered saints for their selfless devotion to their children, which seems to produce the happiest kids I've ever seen anywhere. Since most Mexican women over the age of 18 are mothers, there will be many large, family parties and picnics around town. Many small businesses will be closed and other services may be hard to obtain.

Personal Core Training

by

Jaime Barbiery

My session concentrates on your core abdominal muscles .I will show you simple, yet gentle and effective exercises for you that strengthen your balance abilities, focusing on being centered and straightened back posture.

Your core abdominals are the center of your mobility and flexibility. Core abdominal muscle groups are used routinely in every day activities - driving, walking, lifting, swiveling, and even dancing!

Having strong core abdominal muscles will let you be more active, healthier, and able to accomplish more in your overall exercise routine and in you’re daily life.

The research I have done indicates that as we age, the core muscles, the stomach, obliques and lower back, are going to support our upper body.  My easy yet effective sessions will strengthen these important core abdominal muscles. If using the services of a nutritionist, these exercises will greatly affect your waist.

Using lightweights, Pilates balls, non-strenuous exercises and other equipment, we will work as a team to ensure you reach your goals.

This Is Mexico

This is Mexico is a collection of essays on the often magical, mysterious and sometimes heartrending workings of everyday life in Mexico from the perspective of an American ex-patriate.  Merchasin's stories provide an informed look at Mexican culture and history exploring everything from healthcare to religious rituals, from the educational role of the telenovela to the cultural subtleties of the Spanish language.  

"This is a delightful book.  It made me ponder, smile, laugh out loud.  Merchasin's droll take on the unfamiliar and unlikely is a tonic, and she loves Mexico, and its people, as I do."  Alice Walker
