Here in San Antonio, we are actually closer to Mexico than we are to any other US state.  Being as close as we are, there is a lot of Mexican cultural influence, from our Fiesta and Día de los Muertos celebrations to the fantastic restaurants and art.

As always, here is a list of videos we watched.  We originally did some study back in 2018 before I got all organized about it.  These were some of the videos we enjoyed then:

Here are the videos that we enjoyed in 2019 while learning about Mexico the second time around:
For food, we went to our local HEB and picked up some fun treats.  There was an entire section of shelves that had snacks from Mexico.  We tried their spicy peanuts (something like this) and some lime cucumber Gatorade (a flavor we hadn't seen anywhere else before coming to the area, and similar to aguas frescas).  I think we also got some sort of galleta - something sweet that I knew my kids would enjoy.  We topped it all off with a trip to Tlahco Mexican Kitchen.  It claims to be very authentic, and all dishes are served on what appears to be handmade terracotta dishes.
