Word on the street in our town is that we’re expecting a visit from the president of Mexico, Felipe Calderón, as well as from the governor of the state tomorrow. This is significant, because ours is a market town of only about 20,000. It sounds like he’s planning on visiting maybe a few other towns and villages in the area, as well. We had a visit from the governor back in March, and that was a big deal.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go to any of the festivities or what, but I’ll get a few photos if I’m able to.
I haven’t been able to find a lot of info on the web, but below are links to a couple of stories. As often seems to be the case, the biggest news is the boycots, protests, and road blockings being planned by people who want to get some issue onto the president’s radar. That’s pretty standard politics around here. Here are the links, in case you’re interested:
