Good to see you visited Mexico RoG.

Your astonishment about the Frosted Flakes being called "Zucaritas" over here reminded me of, when I was a little lad, I was in my school and our English teacher told the class we had to make a sketch about cereals for the following open class (a kind of stage show for the parents in which the students show off what they do in school and what they are supposed to be learning). As I had lived abroad, everyone asked me the names of the regular cereals were called in English, like Corn Flakes, Cheerio's, Honey Smacks and the like. Most of them were the same in the Mexican market, but no one believed me -not even my teacher- when I told them that Zucaritas are just called "Frosted Flakes" in English. Thinking I was joking with them, they decided to use the weird sounding name "Sugaritas" (pronounced like Sugar with the "-itas" ending) for the sketch. If I had known better, I would facepalmed sooo bad that it would still have medical repercussions today.

And since youre venturing into our country, I once again suggest going to Real de Catorce, a small town in central Mexico that used to be a mining town during colonial days. Since you love the eerie stuff, you'll love that town. It has a strange aura floating on it, you can almost feel your energy being drained while staying in the town.

But unluckily, it doesn't have any drug-discount stores selling Cialis and Viagra, so no Viagra-man.
