Every Mexican male worth his salt is a Caballero or horsemen, even if he has never seen or been on a horse. Half of the restrooms in Mexico are marked, not Men, but Caballeros, even if there is never an adjacent place to tie your mount, should you happen to come in on one. Mexicans, like Americans, have their ideas about when men rode on horseback. We were cowboys. They were noble ranchers. But all that is in the shadows of the past now, except on restroom doors.
