Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!!!
Do people in the North, East, or West part of the United States celebrate Cinco de Mayo? From my understanding Cinco de Mayo is just a Texas thing. Then again Texans will use ANY and EVERY excuse to celebrate a holiday. If you think St. Patrick’s Day is bad… naw kid… you need to come to Texas for Cinco de Mayo.
What does Cindo de Mayo represent? If you say Tequila and Coronas then you would be incorrect my dear friend. Cinco de Mayo, without using Wiki as a reference, indicates that Mexico lost the battle at the Alamo, but represents their commitment to winning the war. The Mexican won their independence from France in the war of San Jacinto (09/16). This mean they won their freedom from France.
The ironic thing is, even though most state employees get San Jacinto Day off most people celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Because I live downtown and this area mainly consisted of people in their 20’s and 30’s with no kids and love to drink all I hear from my balcony is Lowrider from the Cheech and Chong movie, Born in East LA.
I was at an Irish Pub (LOLOLOL I know… please no need to comment on that) getting my Cinco de Mayo on. The John Steward’s the Daily Show was filming, but I left. I had two 32 oz mason jars of a tequila sunset. I haven’t had a sunset since college. I’m didn’t get drunk… but I sure felt good.
Well, I was alone on Cinco de Mayo because most of my friends celebrated the day before. However, it wasn’t so bad. I got to sketch my next photography project which I hope to execute in either June or July.
So I shot these photos on my balcony. Both Jax and I have super nosey personas and we couldn’t help but to watch all our neighbors at the pool getting their gringo on for Cinco de Mayo.
