Behold, the rising star of Mexico politics: Hilario Gutierrez.


Hilario was one of my husband’s grad school roommates. Besides being a great roommate, movie matinée date, tostada-maker, and the best train-dance leader in the Western Hemisphere… he is now a rising star in Mexico politics. Hilario won the first round in the primary-type things for mayor of Playa del Carmen. Go Hilario!

Here is some sort of article about Hilario a la presidencia municipal de Solidaridad. I have no idea what it means.

Here are some pictures that will make you wish you were the mayor of Playa del Carmen, or at least a visitor, on this gray, rainy day in DC.
