Nuevo Ano en Mi Casa: Viaje Mucho, Yo Quiero

As I was watching the Mexico City fireworks from our 5th-floor balcony, our neighbors from across the street ran out of their house, Mom, Dad and 8-year-oldish daughter. They were pulling luggage behind them, wearing coats, as if headed for the airport.

I looked for whatever taxi they were headed to, but they suddenly started doing circles around a tree, still pulling their luggage. They took turns shouting “Feliz Ano Nuevo” followed by….the names of places….

“Espana!”
“Madrid!”
“Inglaterra!”
“Orlando!”
“Nueva York!”
“Los Angeles!”
“California!”

…one of the many New Year’s traditions here includes doing exactly this, in hopes of many good travels in 2009.

To all of you, lo mismo: ….que tengan un MUY FELIZ 2009!!!!
