On May 5th, some Mexican people celebrate Cinco de Mayo, to commemorate the army’s unlikely victory against the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In recent years, it has been adopted as a defacto celebration of Mexican-American culture and heritage in the U.S., much like St. Patrick’s Day with Irish-Americans. So, we thought it was fitting to visit Rosie’s Mexican Restaurant in the East Village for our most recent field trip. Students from Italy, Vietnam, Brazil, Japan, and Saudi Arabia enjoyed typical Mexican dishes like tacos and enchiladas, many for the first time. After lunch, the group continued on to a bakery in the area to sample some over-the-top pastries before going their separate ways to enjoy the beautiful spring weekend.
