Today is May 5th aka Cinco de Mayo. To many here in the United States, thoughts of the day do not stretch beyond having a few drinks.
From what I'm reading, it's not a big holiday in Mexico and it is not Mexico's Independence Day.
This roundup of links may be quirky, but hopefully it will take us beyond the alcohol and give us a few more things to think about when it comes to Mexico.
