FYI
The picture on the front page might not be the most appropriate for this post:

You may have seen the “typical” dress used in Mexican folk dances, but did you know that there are regional and state specific variations?*

Puebla, where it is thought this type of dress (“china poblana”) originated, would use something more vibrant with lots of sequins.

And now you know.

*This style of dress was only common in certain parts of Mexico, mostly in the south.


Glad to see “Puebla topes” memes haven’t crossed the border.
