Sharing the traditional « galette des rois » in Mexico City!
On Thursday, January 26, about 20 alumni and students from emlyon business school gathered in Mexico City to share the traditional “galette de rois”. Some alumni from Audencia and HEC also joined the dinner party.
It was a very pleasant evening, enabling great exchanges between local alumni and students who are currently taking classes at the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Inviting the spouses created a more “family” environment, which led to an enriching networking event.
The dessert – galette des rois – was a great opportunity to share some tradition with our Mexican friends: the youngest of the group who has to go under the table to distribute the pieces of the galette, the story behind the “santons” and electing the king and the queen of the night!
What a great evening!
We look forward organizing our next gathering and hope to meet as many of you who live in Mexico!
