Mexico (2014)

For many years, I did not fully appreciate the cultural riches and enhanced world perspective granted to me by my Mexican heritage. As a kid, I viewed all things Mexican, including myself, as being slightly inferior for not being "fully American," as if that were somehow a bad thing. How naïve I was.

I relish my next opportunity to spend time with my family and explore a vastly diverse and beautiful country full of treasures for the eyes and pleasures for the stomach.
