Eye Candy of the Week – Mexico City Colours

 

Yesterday was my first day in Mexico City.  I have to say that I am really excited to be back in my country, to see family and friends and to enjoy what my country has to offer.  One of my favourite things in Mexico are the colours of my country which have been the link that have reconnected myself with my  own roots. 

 

Every time I ‘m back in Mexico City I noticed big changes in the city,  but maybe the nostalgic moment of the time was bringing back great memories of my childhood.

 

Today I want to share a different eye candy of the week.  Today’s candy is the vibrancy of the colours in my culture.  These are the colours you can see in one day.

Hola Ivan, enjoy your trip and visit with your family (mamacita). Never been to your city but I know how vibrant and extraordinary it is in any aspect, including the contemporary art scene.

Ivan,

Bright spots in our heart are always there and waiting to Light the Way back for us.

This is what makes us so unique. And what our elders tell us about never forgetting where we came from.

We are like trees, growing, reaching and with deep roots. Your mind must be spinning with lots of details you never knew existed until this trip.

Thanks you for sharing with us!
Have an extraordinary visit.

Lived in Mexico City for 2 years and LOVED the color I was surrounded by. It was during my childhood years, but maybe that's why I'm so drawn to color now! Our past really does play a big part of our future. Have fun enjoying the culture! I'm off to Spain in 2 weeks so we'll have to compare photo's.
