In February of 2013, Thomas Friedman, a journalist for the New York Times wrote an interesting article about Mexico called, “How Mexico Got Back in the Game”. The article started with this explosive opening paragraph: “IN India, people ask you about China, and, in China, people ask you about India: Which country will become the more dominant economic power in the 21st century? I now have the answer: Mexico.” In it, Friedman talks about the good, the bad and the ugly in Mexico; but, how nonetheless, there is promise.
I’m including the New York Times link for those of you who would prefer to read his observations firsthand. For the rest of us, I’ve included a condensed version in video format sponsored by AIESEC, an international non-profit that provides young people with leadership development. Enjoy.!

Feliz lunes.!! Happy Monday.!! I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter.! Or Passover.! Or just a wonderful weekend.! My weekend was a rollercoaster ride, but as the saying goes “sometimes you’re on top of the wheel of fortune and sometimes you’re getting smooshed by it.” Or something like that. jajaja… Needless to say, even with the great weather in Chicago, I was thinking about warmer climes. There’s something about being on vacation that no amount of rest and relaxation at home can match.
It just puts you in a different mind frame. For example, in this week’s Dos Equis’ commercial, the guys are on vacation. And one particular “guy toy” gets utilized in a manner that would have started a fight back home. But here, on vacation, it brings a toast.! Because on vacation everyone is just more chill, you know.! Have a great week everyone.! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!
This Saturday’s full moon was also the third blood moon in a four-part series. Blood moons get their nickname from the orange coloring present before, during, and after a lunar eclipse. Yesterday’s lunar eclipse was also the quickest of the last two eclipses. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of the full moon in blood moon coloring. But, my friend, P., and Zenzi Beach did a great job capturing the full moon in all of her beauty 🙂
Today is Easter for most Christians around the world. Interesting tidbit about Easter is that it never falls on the same date. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after (never on) the Paschal full moon. The Paschal full moon is the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox. So this weekend had it all…a lunar eclipse, a blood moon, Easter. And Passover.!
I hope everyone got a chance to see the moon last night. She was resplendent.! She even made Lake Michigan look good as she cast her moon beams on the water.! I hope everyone is having a great day. See you for Corona soon 🙂
