Well, CA, I dunno what Jubbely is, but the reality of Mexico, while quite mixed by North American standards, is also a wonderful experience and full of rich sounds. I have a tape of them from my year in a small village outside Guadalajara -- thunder and tree-birds and the sound of gauchos riding over cobblestones and the whistle of a scissors-sharpener who announced his arrival by blowing on a little bosn's pipe, and dozens of others. Very rich and evocative.

Mexicanos, al grito de guerra
El acero aprestad y el bridón;
y retiemble en sus centros la tierra
Al sonoro rugir del cañón.

Mexicans, at the cry of battle
Prepare your swords and bridle;
And let the earth tremble at its center
At the roar of the cannon.
-------------
But should a foreign enemy dare
To Profane your land with his sole,
Think, beloved fatherland, that Heaven
Gave you a soldier in each son.

Gringo is an 18th century Spanish term for a foreigner and was used in much of Latin America. Nothing to do with rushes, Irish or the Mexican War. See threads on Santa Ana, etc. where documentation is given.

It has such romantic, musical overtones (whatever they are)to it think of all the songs that would be nothing without it!

MEXICO what a word! What a name! I love it!

The musical overtones are well deserved -- the cult de mariachi is deeply ingrained.

Of an evening, go to the big square in Mexico City. In one part, folk singers, mariachis and other musicians gather, hoping to be hired. Some old timers- lots of songs of all types plus harp players and other musicians. You can hear a lot for a few pesos.
