No one there is afraid of color, that's for sure.
The more the better.
Another thing I love
is shopping in the outdoor markets.
I don't think I did it justice though ~
I didn't really get the image of the
sights and sounds and the hustle and bustle.
This painting is just a bit too serene!
But still, I hope it's a pretty picture.
Not too realistic either.
I'm wondering if a pretty girl in that country
might end up somewhere other than selling
curios on the street. And the little sleeping girl ~
at that age, a kid would probably
already be working a full day.
The last time I went to Mexico
(about 18 months ago)
the police were carrying AK-47s
and were very visible all over town.
Someone told us the mayor of the town
(Rosarito Beach) had just been murdered.
There was a lot of ill feeling among
the different political groups
and the police were trying to impose order.
Or something. It was a little scary!
But still, that experience didn't
kill my affection for Mexico.
The people are so kind, friendly, and creative.
The culture is fascinating. Ancient.
I understand that now it could be
quite a bit more dangerous to visit there.
It's a frightening time we live in!
And not just there, but anywhere.
Ah well, what can one do?
Painting pretty pictures helps...
Don't miss the entries in the Mexico
challenge over at Inspiration Avenue.
