Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo 2018 in Rio de Janeiro
Despite of what many people may think, Cinco de Mayo has no relation with Mexico's independence, but the military victory of the city of Puebla, which defeated the French army in 1862.
In Rio de Janeiro, one of the Cinco de Mayo celebrations among expatriates will be a themed dinner party and fundraiser night host by the U.S. Consul General and his wife, Jimmy and Susan Story.
A 'Ho Salute' From Detroit for Cinco de Mayo
The parade has fewer in attendance each year, the flags sell less and less. Revelry dwindles as daily tensions add fear and violence to joyous celebrations when beer is cheaper than water, and so many in Detroit are about to implode.  And so come May, it might take a little longer to fill your dance card.  It may be harder to decide what to wear with this fickle weather. But you will not go unseen.  Remember when we were little and we joked "the bigger the hoop, the bigger the ho?" Bring the hoops on. Bring them on as wide as a thigh.  Let them sparkle in the reflection of mirror face aviators staring your way from a car going by at 2 mph taking in Detroit's heavenly scenery.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
