Mexico Culture Guide

Popularity: Page View: 765 Site Visit: 23

A homage to Mexico culture because Mexico breathes with life. To be touched by the cultural landscape of Mexico is to feel more alive. It is like having fuego en la sangre (fire in the blood) in that a new awe and desire for life is awakened. Well that's how it was for me living in the Yucatan and in Veracruz with my Mexican partner. And when you are away from Mexico, as we are for now, something tugs at your heart calling you to return to this great reservoir of cultural histories, and the great colorful canvas that is Mexico.

Description: Mexico culture guide - Mayan Culture
Experiences so exotic to Westerners, are just part of the fabric of Mexico: Being seranaded by a group of musicians in your courtyard at 4am with all the neighbors standing on their rooftops listening in; dancing in the heat of the day to live music in a plaza; buying taquitos from a doorway at 3am; watching trains pass the Sol brewery with passengers sitting on the roof heading to the Northern border; buying a kilo of tortillas for 9 pesos (around 5 cents) from a tortilleria or from a man on a bicycle tooting a horn.
