New trip on We Collaborate

Posted on January 21, 2012 at 2:43pm 0 Comments

Day 1 at We Collaborate.

Yesterday Kieran, my son, was 18 months old and I received a late-but-expected Christmas gift: a calendar with his pics! Today I enjoyed and share it with my mom and we both were amazed how wonderful he is and how much he looks alike his mom and dad :)

Just recently (Sat. 6th, '12) I took my Spanish students to a very interesting small town in the State of Guanajuato, named Penjamo. There, they have an archaeological site called Plazuelas and a Tequila factory named Corralejo among other cultural attractions.

This is something I learned there (which curiously combine both experiences: Old pre-Hispanic Mexico and the brand new 'tamed' wold in which we live in today) {text on Spanish}:

"Se cuenta que en aquella época prehispánica en las tierras donde ahora es el Estado de Jalisco, en encontraba un grupo de indígenas en una cueva protegiéndose de una fuerte tormenta que azotaba a su pueblo."

"Fue entonces que por obra de Mayahuel un rayo cayó sobre el corazón del maguey, el cual ardió durante varias horas."

"Después de que Tlaloc contuvo su torrencial lluvia, los antiguos mexicanos percibieron un extraño, pero agradable aroma que provenía del maguey. Se acercaron intrigados y fue entonces que uno de ellos tomó un pedazo, y al probarlo, lo sintió dulce y lo ofreció a los demás, y así fue que descubrieron los tesoros que esta planta poseía."

{Traditional legend about the discovery of mezcal-tequila by the antique aborigine Mexican cultures}.
