Es tiempo por fiesta en Mexico

I read recently that the three largest sources of income for the country of Mexico are: Oil revenues, money sent home by workers living in other countries and tourism.

Mexican oil reserves are reduced every day with no new sources being found. Mexican workers living and working in other countries are not working due to the economy and are moving back to Mexico. The tourism industry is as bad as it has ever been because of the Flu Epidemic.

A friend told me several years ago that he could not understand why I enjoyed going to Mexico. He told me he would never go to Mexico because it was full of Mexicans. Heaven forbid. Imagine that? Not one of my more intelligent or well informed friends.

In Spanish it es Tiempo por fiesta en Mexico. It is time to party in Mexico.
