MEXICO' S INFLUENCE ON THE MARIANS
We are so used to think "Spain, Spain, Spain" that we don't know what a great influence Mexico had on the Marianas. In the first 150 years Spain went via Mexico to the Mariana Islands, especially via the Acapulco-Manila galley itinerary. Mr. Sánvitores, who founded the first constant Marian spiritual mission in Spain, came over Mexico bringing along Mexico's laity missionsaries and troops.
Mexicans, who began to settle in the Mariana Islands in 1668, were themselves a product of the race mixing between the natives of Mexico and the Spaniards. The Mexicans of today show this blend, some of whom are more like tribal tribes and others more like Europeans.

Chiclaquiles consist of roasted maize tortillas covered with spaghetti or moles, egg, chickens, cheese o r pickled whipped with whipped egg or curd, in a wide range of different toppings.
