Mexico 2.0 09

by Ron Mader

In the next three months Planeta.com is making a major revision to the Mexico features online our website. We’ll be adding a number of links to Web 2.0 resources and assisting local tour operators, indigenous artesanos and government officials to make most of the Web.

This year Mexico hosts the World Environment Day (June 5) as a way of celebrating environmental awareness around the world. Planeta.com will celebrate the holiday by presenting our annual Colibri Ecotourism Award.

Updates on Planeta.com include features on parks and protected areas, local sports, traditional markets and options for eco travelers. Highlights will include indigenous tourism options throughout the country.

Watching television in Mexico: NFL

by Ron Mader

Is there a way to take a ‘screenshot’ of Sky television?

Looking ahead to this weekend’s NFL games, we have Dallas vs Caardinals and even better than that spelling mistake we have Indianapolis vs. Houston and Baltimore vs. Indianapolis on Televisa and Azteca. I’m kind of hoping that Indianapolis is so good it can take on two other teams at once. This is on par with the game of games promoted years ago Minnesota vs. Vikings.

Mexican TV – cable and free – wants to like football estilo Americano. But what’s actually broadcast is just sad beyond the realm of Televisa’s star team of announcers starting with knowledgeable and always amiable Pepe Segara.

For NFL info, the safe bet is just to go to Nfl.com.

And for those interested in American football in Mexico – yeah! – check out
ONEFA, profiled in English on Wikipedia.

Borrego vs Borrego matches are actually not a misprint.
