It has been another great trip to Mexico City to visit my family, and while I was there for a short I simply had to wander around the City with my camera to try to capture some of its magic.
My opinion about Mexico City is not of a native Mexican girl who simply adores her country and ignores all its political issues, high level of crime and corruption, of course it has that, but also an immense beauty that can’t be explained or described, you have to be there to understand its charm.
I left for Europe a long time ago, but every time I visit it awakes a part of me that I sometimes think it has died, my Mexican roots will always be there but the love and appreciation for my culture seem to fade away at times, until I go back and I’m reminded of how lucky I am for having grown up in such an interesting place, of rich culture and history, full of mystical places and mysterious Aztec legends of their gods.
Mexico is tradition, food, religion, tequila y mescal, friendly people, colour, humor and music, this country has a piece of my heart and I think that if you ever visit it you might leave a piece of yours behind.
