“Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it, or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Being gay is not a western invention. It is a human reality.”

This is one reason why I like living in downtown Monterrey, honestly I don’t like the city but there are several cultural events that attract me so much, I love the Prehispanic culture and live to see this filled me with joy. I make this piece inspired in this dance.

My culture is fucking awesome!

Algo que me hace sentir orgullosa de mi país es su variedad culinaria,en lo personal Mexíco es el segundo lugar de comida que a mi me gusta mucho. Yo nací en Veracruz y algo típico de mi tierra natal son los Tamales Veracruzanos o Tamal Huasteco envueltos en hoja de plátano. Esta tarde fuí al corredor del Arte en Monterrey y había una mujer que vendía de pollo, puerco, res y queso, muy ricos! Así que aquí les dejo la receta para que se preparen unos y lo acompañen con un rico atolito :)

Para los tamales:
2 kilos de masa de maíz
500 gramos de manteca de puerco
2 hojas de acuyo u Hoja Santa.
2 1/2 litros de caldo de pollo
sal al gusto
hojas de plátano las necesarias. 

Para el relleno:
4 pechugas de pollo enteras, cocidas y desmenuzadas
8 chiles anchos, remojados, sin semillas y venas
3 chiles chipotles despepitados
4 chiles moritas despepitados
1 jitomate grande asado, pelado, molido y colado
4 cucharadas de manteca de puerco
10 hojas grandes de hoja de platano u acuyo cortadas en trozos
sal al gusto.

El relleno se prepara con los chiles hervidos que se licuan con la misma agua y se vierten sobre la manteca caliente a la que se agrega el jitomate, se guisa hasta que este espeso, se sazona y por último se añade el pollo desmenuzado.

La masa se prepara disolviéndola con el caldo en una olla o recipiente grande; se cuela con una manta de cielo y se pone al fuego dejando que dé un hervor antes de añadirle la manteca, las hojas de acuyo picaditas y sal al gusto.


Se deja a fuego medio sin dejar de mover, se preferencia con una cuchara de palo, durante 20 minutos o hasta que la masa esté cocida. Esto se sabe cuando al poner un poquito de masa en un trozo de hoja de plátano asadas y cortadas en rectángulos de 8 x 10 centímetros. se desprende fácilmente. Luego se untan con aproximadamente una cucharada grande de masa y doblan los extremos laterales de la hoja hacia el centro; lo mismo se hace con los extremos finales,  después se atan con un cordel o con unas tiras de las mismas hojas y se colocan acostados en una tamalera o vaporera forrada con hojas de plátano, se cubren con otra capa de hojas de plátano, dejando cocer por espacio de una hora o hasta que las hojas se desprendan fácilmente.

MARIMBA

The marimba is a percussion instrument that was developed in southeastern Mexico and Guatemala.

In this video I am with two musicians playing the marimba in the Paseo Santa Lucia from Monterrey, Nuevo León, of course I had no idea how to play it XD, but I think I did well.

Pajarito de la Suerte
My friend Claudia and I were walking down the street when we met a man with a “bird of luck” is a typical tradition in Mexico, the small birds trained to pick a note where presumably your luck or an advice is written. Of course, the birdie earns its own food. Is fun and cute

Nuevo León, Mexico.

The Day of the Dead is a pre-Hispanic tradition that honors the deceased every November 2th.


Death is a strong symbol that caused admiration, fear and uncertainty to humans throughout history. For many years, various cultures have created beliefs about death that have successfully developed a series of rituals and traditions and is to worship, honor, frighten and even to mock it.

In Mexico, the death is to celebrate a holiday that has become a national symbol, honor our dead with music, traditional food, beautiful flowers and colorful altars, sadness and worship there to remind our friends and family love and joy.

The last year, i made ​​an small Altar de muertos in my apartment in honor of those who have died in Nuevo Leon as a result of gunfire between drug gangs. My state is going through a difficult situation and all those people who have died unjustly I think they deserved to be remembered and revered in a way, I did not know any of these people, but I dedicated this altar with all my heart 

In this video I show you how I built my mini Altar, are more bigger, but for time and money, i made a symbolic, hope you like it :).
