Blog a la Pibil

"Blog a la Pibil" was born in Mexico, and was originally based on the adventures of Josue and Lupita, who were traveling in Mexico for two months. This blog is now a continuation of the life of Lupita, who has been restored to her life as a mere mortal in Los Angeles.

Lucha Libre

(happy birthday Lupita!!!!!) Also have to blog about Friday night's Lucha Libre at Arena Mexico, a classic old stadium in Mexico City. Lucha is mexican pro wrestling with acrobatics and lots of wrestlers in masks - which means there were tons of families with dads and little kids running around with masks. Very cute. There were male and female wrestlers beating the tar out of each other. Lucha libre is equal opportunity. (happy birthday Lupita!!!) We went in a group of gringos, which was okay even though we didn't know most of the background stories of the fighters. We just screamed when everyone else did. There's more swearing at Lucha events than any other sports event in Mexico. Also, the women wrestlers were by far the most fun. (happy birthday Lupita!!!) The current champ Lady Apache put a righteous smackdown on Dark Angel. I will now always regret not buying a Lady Apache Tshirt after the fight. Other favorite male wrestlers of the night were Maximo (dressed up like Caesar), Dr. Wagner (evil, masked, and hilarious to listen to a crowd of non English speakers screaming Dr. Wagner) , and Destino (most spectacular jumps) . Also happy birthday Lupita!!!!

Happy Birthday, Lupita!
May you stuff yourself with Spanish lessons, good food and plenty of local alcohol.
