North East Mexico is such a weird place

It has a bread called semitas (semites). It has pastries called turcos (Turks). There is a town called China. There is a town called Los Ramones. It has a game called quita y pon (dreidel). It has a game called changai (Shanghai).

What... the... Hell...

1. Whoa! That should bear some investigation. Someone should get to the bottom of this.

Thanks for the alert!

2. Id read somewhere that the conquistadores who left Cortez

in Mexico and went north to what became NewMexico were actually a contingent of Jews who had been forced renounce Judaism and convert to Catholicism.
