Great Danes in Mexico

Mexican President Felipe Calderon wants to work out a trade deal with Denmark. 

This won’t be a first in Mexico-Denmark relations. The first documented contact by Denmark with this country took place almost five hundred years ago when Franciscan Friar Jacobo Daciano, son of the Danish King Hans and Queen Christine landed in Michoacán to spread the word in the Meseta Purepecha.  Not all of the Christian brothers were native Spanish speakers.

But the Danes didn’t ignore Mexico after that, sending on Baron Henrik Eggers during the French Intervention and Frans Blom to study indigenous culture in Chiapas.
