Did you know that soccer is Mexico’s main sport? They have hosted 2 world cups they are the third country to host 2 world cups. Soccer is a big part of Mexico culture.

First Time to Mexico After a long boring travel, we finally arrived to my grandmother’s house in Mexico. It was my first time going so I was astonished by everything and quite glad to see my cousins and family that i have never knew I had. A lot was different from my home up in California. There was so many little stores nearby and way more flavorful, delicious food like tamales and sopes.
Mexico is right below The United States of America and the cultures are not very similar. One thing that mainly surprised me about Mexican culture is that when any two people communicate, a fair amount of touching is involved. In The United States of America, that is not very common. One thing I believe would surprise others about Mexican Culture is the way people make eye contact. For example, when a child is in trouble and looks directly into the parent’s

Celebrating holidays from both countries, each with their own special traditions, I was able to become more appreciative of where my roots lie. From the U.S. national anthem, to the beautiful folklorico dances of Mexico, I am fascinated with the blended culture I
I usually cross the border once a week to go and visit my family. Going to Mexico is easy but coming in to San Luis, Arizona you have to show your passport in order to pass so it is possible to last about 3 hours to cross, but there is something called Sentri which is much faster than the normal line. Overall It is amazing living here because you are not stuck into the same place all the time. Also, you get to visit two very different places whenever you want which is always appreciated.
Foods is one thing they brought such as, Chocolate, Caesar Salad, and a very big shocker, Hot Cheetos! Many don’t expect certain foods to be from Mexico because of the way it looks maybe, or the way they taste. Clothing is another thing Mexicans brought to the United States. Many are familiar with a sarape that comes straight from Mexico, a serape is like a long blanket that’s often made of bright colors and tied at the ends. The serape is mostly worn by men.
This would be my fourth time visiting Mexico. Crossing the border is the most nerve racking thing that you could do and I know from experience how dangerous it can be driving to your destination. It was the December the week before finals and my parents had planned on taking a trip to
Guanajuato, Mexico is where it all began. Its where my family cultivated their Mexican traditions. It is a place that is known, for the colonial cities, especially San Miguel de Allende.

Religion is big in Mexico and according to gobalsecurity an online article, 88% of the population identified themselves as Roman Catholicism and 5 % of the population identified themselves as Protestants and Evangelicals. The values of the Mexican people are always around the family. Families are usually large in Mexico and are very conscious of the responsibilities to immediate family members and extended family such as cousins and even close friends. Whenever Mexicans host parties, they make visitors feel welcomed and comfortable which is a large part of the customs and values of the country. The Mexican people believe that any important decision within the family should be taken after all members in the family had their voice heard.
California is the place to go for spending time with your family and doing fun activities together. Going to California was by far my favorite vacation, I got to see the Hollywood sign, go to Disney Land, and get in the Pacific Ocean. Every type of person could go on a vacation to California and have a great time just like my family and I did. Spending the whole day in airports and airplanes was definitely worth it to go to
The biggest difference in the two climates is the average temperatures, precipitation, and the humidity levels. But outside of the factors the climates are relatively the same, both not getting much rain but San Diego gets more out of the two, Phoenix having the higher Average temperature, and San diego being more humid due to it’s access to a beach. with lower humidity in Phx, the temperature swing is much larger than an area next to an ocean it cools very quickly and is usually cool for after sunset and first thing in the morning, but direct sun areas can be warm feeling when a nearby shady area is cool.
