Living in Mexico since a long time and working in Real Estate in Playa del Carmen, where we have seen many busy days, it always amazes me to wake up one morning and find out there is a national holiday here.
For sure for those living here, i bet you perfectly understand this situation, when you leave your house or condo on a sunny day, are about to start the working part of living in the Caribbean and find out, that e.g. the bank is closed or the government offices are not open…does it sound familiar?
Mexico has a rich history and it is easy to forget this because of the simple fact, that we live in this paradise one finds in Playa del Carmen. Who really cares which date and day it is, if you can enjoy the turquoise waters and white sandy beaches every single one of them 🙂
If you are interested in Benito Juarez, whose birthday is coming up very soon and will be celebrated here, just click on the picture. He was one of the most important politicians in Mexico and is considered something like a Mexican Abraham Lincoln and held in high regard.
