Norma Hernandez visited me from San Diego-Tijuana for fiestas patrias in September. We patriotically drank and ate on a trajinera at Xochimilco, had chiles en nogada, and watched the military parade at the Zócalo, which was then overtaken by thousands of families with kids wielding enormous inflated pencil ornaments.
She loved it. Today, November 8, Norma turns ... one year elegantly older. Happy Birthday, mom!
