Bingeworthy Mexican Netflix shows to teach you Spanish
Mexico News Daily

I love watching TV and movies, and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. After all, we humans are practically programmed to really get into a good story. I’m also a fan of watching Mexican TV (and Netflix) specifically for learning purposes. With technology that lets us put on subtitles at will, watching local shows and movies is a fantastic way to study both Spanish and Mexican culture, and one that I’ve long recommended. Watching Mexican shows like Ojitos de Huevo can give you more than just new language skills – it can open the door to learning more about other cultures as well. (Netflix) To hel ..read more

The year was 1995, but I remember the anxiety I felt like it was yesterday. It was my second year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and I found myself looking around at what some of my best friends were studying: engineering, chemistry, accounting, physics. I wondered, how will I find a good job with a generic management/marketing degree? So I started thinking about what I could do that would give me some more experience and hopefully, more marketability to get hired after graduation. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) had just gone into effect the year before, and I remembe ..read more

Strolling along San Luis Potosí’s tree-lined, pedestrianized street, the Calzada de Guadalupe, I pondered why I hadn’t seen a single foreign tourist in the city. San Luis, as the locals call it, is a beautiful town whose historic center was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2018. Made up of 42 streets, the downtown area is home to 500 historic monuments, Baroque and neoclassical structures and old stone manors that have been now been remodeled into museums, shops, and restaurants. It’s hard to pick the very best that San Luis Potosí has to offer, but here are some of the highlights: San Lu ..read more

Tacos de canasta: The king of Mexican street food
Mexico News Daily
by Ana Paula De la Torre
1d ago
You can usually identify them by the basket and the giant blue plastic bag that covers them: the taco de canasta — literally “basket taco” — is one of the kings of tacos in Mexico. You can also tell tacos de canasta by the fact that the sellers usually carry the basket on a bicycle and ride around the cities where they’re sold, and even some rural areas, hawking their wares. This type of taco is easily recognizable by its small size and it is one of the most popular tacos in the country, in no small part because it is super affordable for many people — but their low price does not mean poor qu ..read more
