International La Lengua Conspiracy Theory
The good news: La Lengua has gained international recognition! We are now on the map, quite literally, in Japan, Korea and Russia. (I can just imagine the Google maps localization teams saying “You want me to type *what*?”)
All together now!
Unsurprisingly, La Lengua was not translated into any of the Chinese or Arabic Google Maps. No Taco Spring. The revolution will not yet be Sinologized. (This is obviously due to the lack of Mexican food in China, and the clear and present threat posed to wraps and shwarma by burrito supremacy and weaponized tacos.)
The bad news – and this is bad news – is that La Lengua seems to have disappeared from the most recent iteration of the English Google Maps. You may remember the heady glory days of the revolution when La Lengua was practically visible from space:
But as you might have noticed on the first frame of the top gif, La Lengua is missing.
Google giveth, and Google taketh away! The LaLeReCaCo (La Lengua Revolutionary Cartography Council) is maintaining active watch (i.e. hitting refresh and hiding tears) on this disconcerting development.
But regardless of the naming whims of our mapping overlords, La Lengua will live forever as long as taquerias roam free. ¡Viva La Lengua Libre! ¡Continuar La Lucha!
