Lights, Camera ... Cabo!

According to Hatsutaro's narrative contained in the book Kaigai Ibun (as written by David Waldner) when he arrived at Cabo San Lucas on May 1842 there were only two houses and about twenty inhabitants. However, American authors such as Henry Edwards and J. Ross Browne claim that Cabo San Lucas' founder was an Englishman named Thomas Ritchie, aka Old Tom Ritchie. J. Ross Browne says Ritchie arrived there about 1828, while Henry Edwards says that he died in October 1874.

Some foods add 'luck' to a wedding

Brides and grooms hoping to add some good fortune to their marriages have some interesting options when planning a wedding feast.

Many cultures around the globe have identified foods for newlyweds that supposedly will bring good luck, fertility or other blessings.

The foods range from fried crickets to candied almonds to fish.

In Mexico, brides and grooms sometimes dine on fried crickets, lentil soup, and a bean, rice and agave dish, said Beatriz Mejia, director of celebrations at One and Only Palmilla resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. The crickets and the rice dish are said to bring fertility and good luck, and the soup is associated with good luck and good fortune, she said.

Old Mining Town Home to Mexico’s Largest Antique Piano Collection

Mexico’s largest collection of antique pianos can be found at the lone museum in this near ghost town in the country’s northwest.

“Where did all the people go?” asks a tourist brochure that tells the history of El Triunfo, where only a few hundred people live among the rusted remains of what used to be a smelter and the warehouses of an old gold and silver mine closed in 1926.

In its day, El Triunfo was the most important city in the state of Baja California Sur and the first in the region to have electricity and telephone service. People flocked there from countries as far away as England, Germany, Italy, France and even China after gold and silver was found in nearby mountains in 1878.

Around that time, the city’s population rose to as many as 19,000 inhabitants, most of whom worked at the Progresso Mining Company, but the streets are now empty and cars merely slow down for speed bumps while passing through.

But El Triunfo is still home to the Museo de la Musica (Music Museum), an old house that once served as a tools workshop for the mine and now houses an impressive collection of 87 antique pianos, Mexico’s largest.

The museum is located near two century-old smokestacks, one of which is 47 meters (154 feet) high and designed by Gustave Eiffel, the famed 19th-century engineer who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the armature for the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.

Coca-Cola Celebrates Mexico’s Independence Bicentenary

This year Coca-Cola has launched a new series of commemorative bottles for the Mexican market. The collection is dedicated to Mexico’s Independence Bicentenary and the 100 years of the Mexican Revolution. The set will include 32 bright designs, featuring the characters and objects, which in some way refer to this county’s culture.

The bottles are representing eight states, which were released during the revolution: Veracruz, Chihuahua, Guerrero, Baja California Sur, Tlaxcala, Tamaulipas, Sonora and Nayarit. The special edition bottles are available to purchase from January through September, and residents of each state can buy bottles with 2 to 5 designs each month.

The new designs will appear on the Coca-Cola Archives Facebook page right after they are unveiled.
