Mexico Fun Fact #8
My home has actually the largest consumption of Cola in the world! For the past several years, we have have been recorded to consume more Coca-Cola than the average American (almost twice that!).
Reason? I use a more attractive look in selling the beverage (glass over aluminum and plastic). Also, instead of using corn syrup like USA, I use real sugar canes in the drink.
(Cola from USA… pretty good.)
(Cola from Mexico… BETTER!)
How do you like that, USA? :P
I really do like Russia, actually! We’ve been friends for over 120 years! He always has a smile whenever I see him!
Though there were times when a certain northern neighbor wasn’t too pleased with my friendship with Russia…
Hey Mun! what other anime do you like?
((Other than the obvious Hetalia, I actually like this series called Katekyo Hitman Reborn! I also watch Uta no Prince-sama, Soul Eater, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Miyazaki films, and the good ones that everyone knows about: DBZ, Sailor Moon, Gundam, Harlock, etc. There are soo many good anime out there! Plus if you add manga, the list would be huge!))
Trip to Swedish Festival~ (cont.)
There were many activities and interesting people there too! ((OOC: No, I didn’t go to Sweden. I went to a city in the US for it.))
There was a Maypole:
Traditional Swedish clothing (or close to it at least):
And even though it was a Swedish Festival, there was still homage to the Scandinavian neighbor of theirs.
This is lefse, a Norwegian flatbread. When I first saw it:
Me: It looks like a tortilla.
Vender: No, it’s a type of flatbread. You spread butter on it, some sugar, then roll it up and eat.
Me: … so, it is like a tortilla?
Of Course, wouldn’t be complete for Scandinavia unless I saw something Danish!
Other interesting sites I saw include the city’s water tower:
This one screams “Swedish-American” to me:
Trip to Swedish Festival~
Decided to visited a Swedish Festival one day. One of the first things I noticed is that every block, there are banners greeting you.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Swedish unless you see some Dahla horses!
And of course, everyone remembers that Sweden had a Viking era!
Do ya know who Canada is???
I’m just playing! I really like Canada! Our relationship has gotten stronger over the last couple decades actually (because of NAFTA). He is such a good friend!~ ♥
Soooo...Mexico how do you feel about Ghana rejecting your invitation for Football?
It’s not as if I was offended really. Besides, Ghana also rejected Japan for the Friendlies too. But I can understand his reasons for not accepting.
who do you like out of the Baltic states more?
hmmmm, tough question. I rarely talk to them outside of professional business (since they are members of the EU). Estonia and Latvia are both trying to strengthen relations with me and help them with something. And the one thing I have in common with Lithuania is that we both worked for USA at one point.
Though I tell Russia that he should give them some anxiety medicine since they seem jumpy at times…
Mexico Fun Fact #7
My national flower is the Dahlia. They come from the mountainous regions in my home and some parts in South America. There are about 30 different species of this flower.
During the time of the Aztec Empire, the Dahlia flower had a lot of uses (even used for food and carrying water). Dahlias are quite popular in Europe.
Mexico Fun Fact #6
After I gained my independence in 1821 from Spain, I became the Mexican Empire (better name for me than Nueva España).
So, unlike USA, I kept the monarchy. I actually had a large span of land, almost 5,000,000 sq.km!
I even had Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica living with me. However, the empire was short-lived.
No…I’ve heard many countries that you’re the hardest country to teach…y I know how hard it is to teach one…Plus I cringe just by hearing you say “Yo quiero Taco Bell” o “Me gusta.” I will provide you with a translator…y that’s it.
((Also, check out this blog! <3 Another really great cosplayer!))
*rubs back of head and smiles shyly* Eheh… I’m not that hard to teach! Its just… The other languages are so hard to learn! And I heard Spanish was the easiest, so I just thought maybe I can learn a few phrases to help out at least.
Also, I don’t say “Yo quiero Taco Bell” or “Me gusta”. …I say “Me gusta Taco Bell!” And I know a few other stuff besides that. Sorta. I tried using the translator and it doesn’t help! Mexico called me a “puta” when I used it.
((Awww thank you ;w; You didn’t have to promote me though… But thanks <3
And my followers, check out this amazing Spain if you haven’t already!))
USA, don’t just learn Spanish from YOUR television shows, take a class. The reason I hit you, in case you can’t figure it out, is because you always refer to me as a MALE when you call me “el” or “amigo” of the like! I’m a woman! Remember Spanish uses gender words!
(mumbles)… Speedy Gonzales, que la chingada… .
Mexico confesses …
What I feel like doing whenever USA, Spain, or any of my hermanitos do/say something stupid…
and I admit, I’ve done it a few times.
Mexico Fun Fact #5
I consist of 31 states and 1 federal district~.
what is your favorite drink? :D
¡Dios mío! What is this about? Are you planning to poison my precious tequila? Or get rid of all of it in the world?? NOOO!
… Well that was odd. Glad it’s over. Only one thing left to do…
Open up a bottle of tequila~!!<3
Why hello there lovely! Are you alright? ((Guess whooooo.))
find happy place… find happy place… find happy place…
