Mothers Day in Mexico

Mothers Day

This week we can look forward to Mothers Day in Puerto Vallarta on Friday 10 May and I am reminded of a past Mothers Day when I was living in a Mexican neighbourhood and my neighbour decided to organise a mariachi band to serenade his wife in celebration of Mothers Day.

How sweet – and indeed it was a wonderful thing to do, but what time does Mothers Day start?  Yes, it is midnight and right on cue the band arrived on the street and starting playing.  And in true Mexican style the neighbours all around got out of their beds and sat on their balconies for the hour and a half of wonderful mexican music.

Let us all remember and celebrate our mothers this Friday. And if you are lucky enough to be in Puerto Vallarta, I hope you also celebrate with wonderful music, food and friends.
