I'm from Mexico City and lived in the U.S. for a total of more than 24 years. Now I'm back in Mexico. I realized I was seeing my country through the eyes of a native stranger. This is an attempt to process the differences, to explain Mexico to the U.S. and the U.S. to Mexico. With digressions along the way.

Sarcasm in the News

I just realized that the main difference between the Mexican and U.S. news shows is that newscasters in the U.S. are really not sarcastic. I'm talking about your regular evening news. I like my news with some sarcasm.
