Campechano is a word designing the inhabitants of Campeche. It is also an adjective reporting the characteristics of the people from Campeche : straightforward people, with no stress, taking things as they come, without worrying.
So you can understand Campeche. In the cities, even in the capital, life goes with the rhythm of the Mexican province. The salesmen peddle their goods walking in the streets : antojitos, bread, tortillas, ice cream, fruit drinks. They get around singing at the top of their voices and offering any kind of goods that people need.
The traditions persist in domestic life. Every day of the week, every family has the same dish : Monday is puchero day, Thursday is bistecs de cazuela day and Friday is fresh fish day. The chocolomo, a stew made from meat and kidneys, is on every table Saturday night.
