Economic crisis, drug wars, swine flu, earthquake…  it’s been a rough time for Mexico City as of late.  Apparently us Fulbrighters haven’t been the only ones making apocalyptic references (though perhaps the only ones doing it jokingly):

“I’m scared,” Sarai Luna Pajas, a 22-year-old Mexico City resident, told the Associated Press news agency.
“We Mexicans are not used to living with so much fear, but all that is happening – the economic crisis, the illnesses and now this – it feels like the Apocalypse.”  –  BBC

On a more positive note, however, here’s a little more Vincente Fernandez with a popular cantina song called “Estos Celos” (roughly “This Jealousy”).  (EDIT – The actual video was disabled, so here’s the same song with some random weird performance, which only makes it better)
