I didn’t see too many outlets covering this, so it’s pretty cool that @vice @longdrivesouth invested some time. It’s a monumental movement that shouldn’t be forgotten. (via Happy 20th Birthday, Zapatistas! | VICE United States)

As the story goes in Tulum, a family of fisherman found a way to spark daily bustling at their restaurant in the pueblo by serving fresh fish, shrimp and octopus for very good prices. You can see the fisherman scaling the fish while you’re waiting in line for the next table, fresh tortilla chips are carried out of the fryer by the trash bag load, and remember to be assertive when arriving so you’re not left out in the sun.

Via NPR:
The Mexican muralist Diego Rivera painted in New York City, San Francisco, Detroit, Europe and the Soviet Union. But some of Rivera’s most famous murals and most unusual projects are found in Mexico City.
In Mexico City, Rivera did far more than just paint. He collected pre-Hispanic pottery and indigenous folk art. And he experimented with sculpture and architecture.
And between 1950 and 1952, Rivera built a giant tiled fountain to the Aztec rain god Tlaloc as part of an overhaul of Mexico City’s municipal water system.

The Earthscraper, A 65 Story Inverted Skyscraper Concept
The Earthscraper by BNKR Arquitectura is an architectural proposal for a massive inverted pyramid that would be built beneath Mexico City’s Zocalo square and would extend 65 stories underground.

And then the machines will try and kill us and we’ll all have to build these everywhere and live underground for generations and generations!!! Noooo! And then Aztec vampires will get us.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernández, or “Little Pea,” 23, is not only United’s first Mexican player but is also one of their best and most-promising young strikers. Last year, he netted a goal within his first minutes on the pitch as a Red against Major League Soccer’s all-star team.
