Juan Pablo Seade works as a chef in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. From 2008 to 2014, he lived in Beijing learning the Chinese language and cuisines. During those six years, he learned how to make authentic Chinese dishes and found that Mexican and some Chinese cuisines share a common feature: hot chili. In addition, he feels Chinese people are also as friendly as people from his hometown. He maintained a good relationship with the locals and witnessed the rapid growth of Beijing. “This time of my life I could define as unique. I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” he said, recalling the time spent in Beijing.

    Mexico is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is the most populous Spanish-speaking nation. Mexico City is its capital city and largest metropolis.

    Mexico became an independent nation state after the successful Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1821.

    Mexico is a developing country, but has the world’s 15th-largest economy by nominal GDP and the 11th-largest by PPP, with the United States being its largest economic partner. Since 2006, a conflict between the government and drug trafficking syndicates has led to over 120,000 deaths.

    Mexico receives a significant number of tourists every year; in 2018, it was the 6th most-visited country in the world, with 39 million international arrivals.
