What do El Salvador, Miami, and Los Angeles all have in common? They all have Spanish history that mixes in with their history. All though Miami and Los Angeles are both in the United States and far away from El Salvador, they have Spanish speaking residence within their areas. Each of the locations have their own form of culture that is not like each other.
During my whole life I’ve been back and forth, living between Chile and USA. I’ve lived in both countries for almost the same amount of years each. I think if I hadn’t lived here when I was smaller, I would feel a big cultural shock.
There are 195 countries on the planet, but there are many more cultures than there are countries on earth. Not one culture is exactly like one another but they all can share some similarities with one another. Mainly cultures tend to contrast, The United States of America’s culture contrasts with many, but the ones I am the most curious about would be Mexico, South Korean, Japanese and Russian cultures.
Mexico and Cuba underwent major revolutions led by rebels who opposed their current presidents. The revolutionaries in both countries were mainly concerned with the industrialization and modernization that was occurring within their countries. The uprisings resulted in the countries shared beliefs against foreign imperialism, against elites having so much control on their counties and push for land reforms. In the long run Mexico faired better after their revolution than Cuba. Cuba still experiences hostile tensions with the U.S. today and still practices rationing. Each revolution was very important to their country and had many differences as well. Mexico had multiple groups fight for a revolution while Cubans were united under Fidel Castro.
In the 1930s, the president of Mexico, Cardenas, was in imperialism. He was introduced nationalism and land reformation. The mexicans wanted the British to side with them because the ability of certain workers. In 1938, Mexico nationalised mainly British oil companies. Mexico is part of one federal district and is made up of 31 states. Out of all Latin America, Mexico is the third largest country and has one of the largest populations. By 1574, Spain had control over a lot of the Aztec empire. Spain also had a lot of the enslaved population. During the time the diseases were very bad in the empire. It was brought in by the Spaniards and affected millions between 1521 and 1605. On September 16, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo was a priest who wanted to
Geographically speaking, there are differences as well. For instance, Anglo’s primarily speak English while the Mexican Americans predominately speak Spanish. In terms of living conditions, Anglo residences are often well constructed and contain more “luxury” type amenities such as laundry facilities, air conditioning, a nice yard, and gardens. In contrast, on the Mexican American side of town, residences are more basic. For instance, a Mexican American home is more cheaply built and thus less sturdy, often having weaker frames and having yards which are bare and lack
Ever since the conquistadors had conquered Mexico, the life and culture of many modern Mexicans has been altered by Spain. From the design and organization of towns and cities to religion to class system, Spain has definitely made an impression on Mexico. One of the first imprint the Spanish made was leveling the native temples and then putting their Catholic churches and administrative buildings on top. To me, it’s as they - the Spanish are stating their religion - Catholicism - is superior to theirs. Secondly, the Spaniards used the local people as slaves to build their churches and their government buildings. The fact that they took advantage of these people in their own land is just upsetting. Another thing the Spanish did was they “built” a church in the center of every town while all the important
It is true that Mexicans and Spaniards share similarities concerning language and culture, but there are far too many regional variations that make linguists say that Mexican Spanish qualifies to be a separate language, nonetheless, what does differ is that Spain’s political system is a Democratic government with an ‘international’ currency. Additionally, one can find a lot of Spanish influence in Mexican culture such as bull fights, foods like Spanish rice, and yes, Catholic Religion. Yet, it is easy to see the ancestral differences between Mexican and Spanish people due to their many different historical characteristics.
Countries from all around the world have similarities and differences. Even though countries can be located in different parts of the world, they can share some similarities. Examples of two countries that share similarities and are far away from each other are the USA and Egypt. Because of modernization, the USA and Egypt share many similarities. Egypt and the USA can be compared through many things such as traditions, religion, and economy.

The Mexican culture is very diverse which has undergone many transformations over several decades and the culture varies widely throughout Mexico and the United States. I will be more focused on the other side of the border and express my findings about the Mexican culture in Mexico. According to woldatlas an online database, the majority of Mexicans live in cities like Mexico City with a population of 12 million Mexicans. Following cities include Iztapalapa, Ecatepec, Guadalajara, Puebla, and Ciudad Juarez all ranging with populations of one million to two million Mexicans. The smaller rural communities tend to have a stronger role in defining the country’s collective customs and traditions. The customs
The Aztecs or Mexica as they called themselves, weren’t originally from the Valley of Mexico, many people migrated from the north. As history states the people migrated because of a great drought in northern Mexico and southwestern United States. After two centuries of migration, around 1200 AD the Aztecs started to form their foundation in the Valley of Mexico, and that was the start of one of the most mightest civilization. The Valley of Mexico attracted many more people as it was full of rich resources. The Valley was surrounded by high mountains protecting them from any enemies, freshwater from the mountains, marshy lakes that provided them with food, plants, salt and also water for cultivation and agriculture (Nicoletta Maestri, “Aztec Origins and the Founding of TenochtitlÃ¡n - Aztec Tenochtitlan”). About 1250 AD when the Aztecs finally settled and created Teotihuacan, the great city started to grow. It gained so much power that it was the most powerful city in the whole empire. The Aztecs were racing to the height of their success and knowledge. They developed new concepts and number systems. They advanced in Math, Humanities, Science, Compulsory education and Agriculture. Although having all that knowledge and developing so quickly (Unknown, “Teotihuacan”). To keep such a big empire under control they had to follow strict laws. God meant a lot to them although
Que Vivan Los Tamales analyses the history of Mexico's evolving national identity via food. Mexican cuisine has changed dramatically from the the era of the aztecs, to the period of Spanish colonialism through to the Porfiriato dictatorship. Through these periods we we see food being used in a manner to unify the nation and create a national united identity. Below I will argue how the country attempted to unify its people though cuisine.
