Un dia sin mexicanos (A Day Without Mexicans)

Un dia sin mexicanos: This is the movie everybody in Mexico has been talking about-- indeed, it's the second most popular movie in the history of Mexican cinema. What happens when the Mexicans disappear? Los gringos lloran (the gringos cry). Chairman Mayo is Mexican, so I felt mucha solidaridad with the marchers yesterday. All the same, I was very glad that my cleaning ladies, who are from El Salvador (and legal as far as I know), showed up. Chairman Mayo went on a business trip, so for me, it was a day without a Mexican.
