Stuff Mexicans Like is your hands-on guide to Mexican daily life and culture. Be sure to keep it handy while on vacation or when deciding whether or not to sell your condo in San Fransisco to go live on the beach in a hut but with cheap food and good cleaning services for the rest of your life.

If you know any Mexicans, this guide will help you understand and even learn to speak Mexican some day. Speaking Mexican involves using less “I” and more “we,” for example. It involves saying things like, “Si es Ud. tan amable…” (if you would be so kind) and “Estas en tu casa” (you’re in your house, when you know good & well they are not in their house and perhaps hope they will never return), and “Mande?” (Pardon me? but literally, boss me around!) and “Lo que pasa es que……” (what had happen’ was….. this always proceeds an excuse or a lie).

For those who are learning Spanish, this blog will help you improve in leaps and bounds. Read it. Hazlo ya.

    U should also include in your “stuff Mexicans like” blog is “muffin tops ” and too-tight clothing…. Mexican women are the all time queens of muffin tops.
