Snowbirds are landing in our exciting little corner of Mexico. Merchants say none too soon. We, the Wests, enjoy Christmas at Thanksgiving with our extended family in Tennessee. When the last guest goes home, we follow them out the door, in the general direction of Jocotepec, at the west end (naturally) of Lake Chapala...

People who come to Mexico for leisure or business visits lasting 180 days or less, and who are passport holders of one of the many countries which don’t require a visa to enter Mexico, can complete a visitor's permit form at the port of entry, known as a Forma Migratoria Multiple, or FMM. Crews on international flights hand these out before the plane lands, and they are also available at immigration check points beyond the 35km ‘free zone’ when you cross into Mexico by land or sea . . .

Derived from the agave plant, mescal — or mezcal — has been enjoyed since before the Spanish conquest. Most is produced in the Mexican state of Oaxaca and, as with so many distilled spirits, reveals distinct nuances in smoothness, smokiness and flavor. How each producer distills is also unique to his facility and likely his family history of making mezcal. ondenser is kept cool through circulating it or by continuously using new cool water, and so on. No two traditional clay distillers or copper pot distillers use exactly the same recipe unless they are close family members. A friend said, Alvin Starkman has written the best book on mezcal in the English language....

Mexican wings al pastor© Karen Hursh Graber, 2014Wings have landed everywhere. There are endless varieties of these once humble chicken parts, and numerous restaurants are dedicated to serving them. Mexico is no exception to the wing craze, but the many establishments offering these tasty nibbles seem to focus on American style preparations. But the flavors that characterize the cuisines of Puebla, Yucatan, and other regions are not to be overlooked when it comes to serving this popular food. Home cooks can create versions of wings that incorporate their favorite Mexican flavors. The chiles, adobos, pibil marinades, and even tequila and lime make terrific versions of wings...

If pork can take on these enticing flavors, why not chicken wings? Grill these chicken wings in chile-pineapple marinade or bake them, and make plenty, because they will disappear fast. Achiote paste is widely available in Mexico at larger supermarkets and some market stalls, and in the US at Hispanic grocery stores and online.

Road signs in Mexico © Bill Begalke, 2000I am an advocate of slowing to almost a stop when speed bumps appear high enough to scar mufflers and rattle dental repairs. I believe in seat belts. At my age, I need all the stability I can get. I always wear my seat belt when zipping around and about Mexico in our 1998 Volkswagen bug, purchased new when we got serious about going international. My safety routine is to buckle up before starting the engine. On one particular day...

By Monica Rix PaxsonI noticed recently that a hospital in Montreal, Canada is claiming to be the first hospital built in North America. I beg to differ. I suspect that they—like so many people—forget that Mexico is also in North America. The Canadian contender is a latecomer, claiming to have been built in 1645 . . .

Traveling longer distances by bus might not be as trendy, or as fast, or as comfortable as flying, but it's generally cheaper and there are more options, at least as far as price and frequency goes. And nothing quite highlights the difference between the two modes of travel as the contrast - in the capital at least - between the airport and its proletarian counterparts the bus stations . . .

A Huichol friend of mine, Juan Bautista Carillo, came up with the idea of a trilingual edition (Huichol, Spanish, English) of traditional Huichol narratives, The original version entitled Historia El Tau-Sol (Huichol and Spanish for "sun", which I translated using both the Huichol and the Spanish versions, came to about 3368 words. Therefore I shall give a condensed version of the main outline followed by an attempt to explain its meaning and significance.This is not an account of the creation of human beings but of their main means of sustenance, namely fire and the sun. Accordingly this particular Huichol narrative begins with the creation of the first hearth fire...

Ask visitors and foreign residents what they enjoy most about Mexico and they will usually mention the food.

Back in the 19th century, London was known as "the great wen", a huge pus-laden boil on the face of the fair English nation. Nowadays some people—including many foreigners and Mexicans who live in the provinces—see Mexico City the same way. Through the prism of their jaundiced eyes, they see 20 million souls in torment amid a gigantic, filthy, crime-ridden urban sprawl. Maybe so. But Mexico City is also arguably the funkiest city in the Americas, one with a buzz that puts the others in the shade. In the words of the slogan of one of Britain's most popular tabloids, "All human life is here." . . .
