What is this website all about? Love from Surrey to Mexico!
Good question! This website is made by Americans and Canadians who wish they were Mexican because we love their culture so much! And so we designed this blog to be a means for people like us around the world, whether they’re in India, England, China or anywhere, to get an introductory view of Mexican culture. We have nothing negative to say about the Mexican way of life, and so here you will be able to see what all the craze and hype is about when it comes to vacations, tourism, fashion, domestic life and wildlife in Mexico. We ourselves have only been to Mexico a handful of times and do not have as broad of an understanding of daily life in Mexico as someone who permanently lives there, but we still know more than the average person, hence our ability to teach at an introductory level. Mexicans themselves may find fault in some of the things we say, as we’re not experts, and we would be disappointed of this happened as our goal is to share the truth as much as we can. We often hear of stereotypes when it comes to Mexicans, and one of our goals is to debunk many of the negative misconceptions that come with the global perception of Mexico, and as Canadians and Americans we hear more of these stereotypes than we’d like to. So if you enjoy learning and exploring life in Mexico, stick around to learn more. Maybe one day we’ll live there together!
More About the Author
Perhaps one of the major reasons I love Mexican culture so much is because I grew up in the City of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada where the culture is rather drab and dull. I love the vibrant colors of Mexico as opposed to all the browns and grays you’ll find in Surrey. It’s almost as if the people here are trying to imitate the colors of the deer when they paint their houses and buildings.
My family for the most part is a lot like me, especially my grandma who loves Mexican culture even more than I do. My father for as long as I can remember has been doing appliance repair Surrey services and he makes enough to support my mother who likes to make art. Surrey is a great place to make art because the city drastically needs a lot more of it. People here can be boring, like my appliance mechanic father who’d rather fix a fridge than go to a night club. But he too likes trips to Mexico and I’ll always love him.
Now here are 5 reasons I’d rather be in Mexico right now than in Surrey, BC, CA.
- The hot sun blazing down on an ice-cold Mexican beer as opposed to a cloudy breeze giving me the chills while I drink warm Canadian beer.
- People smiling and having fun as opposed to people moping around and hating their jobs.
- Bright and vibrant colors everywhere as opposed to boring colors everywhere.
- A father who dances with me as opposed to comes home late after fixing washers and dryers all day.
- Last but not least, upbeat and happy Mexican music as opposed to the dry folk and country music Surrey elders love so much.
Now you’ve learned a bit about me, a bit about what this blog is all about and more about Surrey BC. I invite you to stick around and check out our various blog posts. We love sharing information about Mexican culture around the world and will have a lot to say in the future. Thanks for visiting and hope to see you soon.
