Each time I read about Michoacán’s Secretary of Tourism sending a delegation to China,
I was puzzled, thinking that if the state doubled the number of Chinese
tourists during any random year past, the number might just total twelve. But
Genovevo Figueroa Zamudio, who’s been serving in that post during the tenure of
Lazardo Cardenas Batel, is just about the brightest and most connected
politician this state has spawned, oh well, since….let’s just leave it as “in
these times.” He’s been governor, he’s been a senator, and he’s been the
ambassador to Argentina,
but he’s definitely no has-been.
Mexico’s wooing one billion Chinese tourists. We’ve been buying their goods for years,
and it’s time that the Chinese drop some hard currency on this country. All
things considered, that’s not a bad idea. Bring ’em on.
