Believe it or not, you wouldn't believe this was a holiday here in Mexico. It's not celebrated much. Not like many of the other festivals and such. The religious ones are celebrated the most. You wouldn't even know it was Cinco de Mayo if it weren't for people from the states sending wishes. I think it's an American way for owners of restaurants to make some extra selling margaritas!
But I have offered to take my girlfriend/neighbor....wife of Darryl who is recovering now from his back surgery, out to a place right down the hill where we can get some fun food and drink to celebrate the day and give her a little break. Since her husband is sleeping a lot and she has a cell phone he could call and we could be there in 5 minutes, perhaps it will do her good to get out. And of course we could bring him a treat if he wants one as well. Anyway we will see what happens. If nothing else she can at least get in our hot tub for a bit.
Hope everyone enjoys the day. Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo where you are?
