Mexicans are a very patriotic and proud people! In the best way, rather than in a nationalistic way – in general at least. And if you venture here you’d best not disrespect their flag or anthem, or you’ll be in serious trouble!!!
Australia’s Big Brother, which is currently running, had a Mexican night. They wore Sombreros, big curly moustaches and ate chilli con carne. Nothing to upset anyone there, even though Chilli Con Carne isn’t actually Mexican food!
But then they played a game with water balloons, which involved throwing them at the Mexican flag…..a serious slight, and cause for a diplomatic incident!!
