Almost any type of clothing is acceptable when attending a church service in Mexico, be it for a wedding, funeral, baptism, quince años, or any other mass. One key, however, is knowing the tradition of the city, town or village in the interior of the country, and being sensitive to the cultural class of the Mexican individual or family extending the invitation.

Hello to All,
"Betcha didn't know! Ron Paul & Newt Gingrich are still running for president." This is the way Letterman opened his show the other night.

It is like a mall within a mall. And if you are hungry from all the shopping, stop by Ruth Chris steak house to recharge…Continue
