This is our story of immigration struggles and moving to Mexico so our family can be together. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!

January is a good month here...

January here in El Grullo is when we have our "Fiestas" They start the 13th and run through the end of the month. Basically the fair comes to town, there is rides, games, food vendors. On top of that there is the rodeo nightly and lots of different music performers, kid shows and comics. The big hit this year is Julian Alvarez. As i am not into Spanish music i really don't know much other than it is a pretty big name in Latino music. Also there is cock fights, which i totally don't like or have any interest in and one night there will be matadors. I am interested in seeing the bull fights to an extent. It is something new to experience and may be fun to watch. The thing that bothers me is that these bull fights are to to the death and i hate to see innocent animals (or people God forbid) killed.

Speaking of animal cruelty the circus is here starting tomorrow. We plan on going, there isn't alot to do here and any sort of activity is fun. I am not anti-circus though i know a lot of people are. I hope the animals are well treated and in decent condition. We shall see.

Hello Rebecca,

Julian Alvarez is what all the hype's about in Mexico as well as Chuy Lizarraga (my husband's fav). I can understand why being into Mexican music would not be your thing! In Nayarit at my husband's "ranchito" cock fights go on regularly, I too disapprove. Animal cruelty is very real in Mexico and I don't mean to generalize but you will probably be appalled at the normal behaviour toward animals in Mexico. I am glad to see in your profile that you were finally able to join your husband as I am in a similar situation and am counting the days we are back together. Hope all goes well for you and your family.
