I love Mexico through and through. It has been heartbreaking to say the least to follow the stories about the drug wars and to know it is the American demand for said drugs that feeds these cycles of violence. Add on the H1-N1 scare and the recession, times have been hard all around for Mexico, which depends on tourism. I am hoping for a better 2010 for all and that we get to make a trip south very soon. Until then, I am officially kicking off a week of Mexican themed posts. ¡Vamos! The above photographs are from the spring catalog of the British store Toast and are all shot in Mexico. Thanks to Danielle at Style-Files for the introduction to Toast.
I've been too busy exploring Texas lately to write about about it and it's time to remedy that situation. I haven't been eating croissants and quiches at the Bistro Bakery since my last entry in late January. Instead, I have been in libraries and state parks, and unpacking. And unpacking. Here are some images that document these adventures. All photos taken at the Guadalupe River State Park at the Bauer House Farmstead Site. (The Bauer House is not currently open to the public; I am part of an UTSA Historic Preservation Seminar that is studying the house as part of a class project that includes preparing a report on the home for the Texas Parks & Wildlife.)
