Family life ranks high in priorities for Mexicans. Sundays are spent together attending Mass followed by brunch. I asked for a table for one and the waiters scrambled like cockroaches at the flick of the light switch to break up the extended table settings for me.
February 5 is Constitution Day, a national holiday. This year it is being celebrated on February 3 making it a long weekend. More than usual, Mexicans flock to the beach to enjoy some time together. They bring their own umbrellas, pick up drinks at the corner OXXO and snuggle up on the sand with the rest of the crowd.
Mariachis stroll through the sand providing a party atmosphere. A good time is had by all. La vida loca!
