At the moment, Mexico is in the news a lot for really really bad reasons.
But as Mexico celebrates its bicentennial tomorrow, videos were released to remind people that a country is not defined by everything you see in the news. The videos, for lack of a better word, are incredible.
For example, the one of Sonora, a state that was my BACK YARD made me realize I really don’t know this part of Mexico I have grown up in all my life. I vow to change this. The roommate extraordinaire, Mar, said it best: “Its ironic how we try so hard to see different parts of the world when we don’t even know the area we came from.”
I am always asked to name my top five places I would want to travel to next. It always changes, and will again now that I am going to Nepal, but one part of the world that I have ALWAYS wanted to go to is Chiapas. Its so close, yet I have never made the effort to actually go.
I mean, watch the video and you will know what I mean.
Maybe next year, that will change.
Anyway, Happy Independence Day Mexico!
