TODAY IS THE DAY! Cinco De Mayo is finally here and we’re ready to hit up all of the great parades, food, music, and costumes - after all, isn’t Mexican food just the best? 

If you love the holiday as much as we do, then we’re sure you already know that Cinco De Mayo isn’t actually a Mexican holiday, but instead it’s an American-made holiday. Who’d have guessed. Make sure to check out our interview with MexntheCity, and get the record straight. 

Tempted to Visit Mexico?

This video was brought to our attention from our friends at MexNtheCity, who document all things hip in Mexico. If you have the traveling bug now, this video will make you want to pack your bags and dip down to Mexico for the art, architecture, and general forward thinking vibe the country has to offer.

The project is entitled 24 hours in Mexico City, and features images from the city during a 24-hour period. The video was premiered at the Mexican pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010. The Mexico City Tourism Promotion Fund helped made it all happen and it was co-directed by Luis Mandoki and Mariana Rodriguez. Additional people that worked in photography and editing were Alberto Anaya, Estaban Arrangoiz and Yaome Escamilla. The Music was created by Alejandro Castaños.
