I love Mexico. I always have. Before I had even set foot on Mexican soil, I was deeply in love with the country. Learning about the Aztecs at age 10, I decided that I needed to visit their homeland and believe me it felt like my home as soon as I arrived. This website comes out of a profound love of a country and a sadness about how it is currently portrayed in the world’s media. Don’t get me wrong, there are some truly horrendous things happening in Mexico, and some deeply complex problems, but this blog is about celebrating the side of Mexico that we never hear about. The Mexico full of compassionate, expressive people. The Mexico bursting with flavour and temptations for all the senses. The Mexico that gets into your soul and never leaves.
