Cinco de Mayo - Celebrates the victory of the Mexican Army, led by Gral. Ignacio Zaragoza against French forces in the city of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.

Also widely celebrated in the United States. US "celebration" of this Mexican historical event is largely a result of promotions in the US by liquor, beer, and bars/taverns/clubs/restaurants since the 1980s. For many years Cinco de Mayo celebrations in the US promoted Cinco de Mayo as Mexican Independence Day which is actually September 16.

Although Mexican citizens feel very proud of the meaning of Cinco de Mayo, it is not a national holiday in Mexico, but it is an official holiday in the State of Puebla where the mentioned battle took place.

Tissue paper flowers are a traditional decoration for Cinco de Mayo, with people festooning their homes and public spaces where holiday events are held with these delicate, handmade decorations. Many people wear them in their hair or in a buttonhole as well. - Source: Wikipedia, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinco_de_Mayo

May 10 / 11th - Arizona/California Via Baja Ferry - Traveling via the Baja Ferries from La Paz mid May 10/11th 2011 and looking for someone to caravan with through Nogales and points north California, Arizona. I speak fluent Spanish and would be happy to help translate if needed. Since the ferry arrives to Topolobampo late at night, there is the Hotel Marina and Restaurant for an over night and leave the next day for the border. About 120 miles south of the Nogales border crossing there is a junction that takes you to Mexico 3 and crosses the border at Mexacali and Tecate for people traveling to California and points northwest.

I travel with 2 nice dogs and stay at pet friendly motels/hotels. I do believe its pretty safe crossing any of the borders, it just always seems better safety in numbers. Please feel to e-mail or call me, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332 and let me know if this works with your plans to caravan back to Arizona or California via the Baja Ferries. - Sylvia, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332, Los Barriles
