The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Just realized I didn't answer your question. I have only been to Mexico across the border from Arizona, but found the people very hospitable. Ditto for the many students I had in the US. Know most of Irina's list!

A Mexican icon image or a stereotype? I've never seen a man wearing these hats in the cities or urban areas but perhaps in the villages?

Since I've spent several winters in Mazatlán, I know quite a lot about México, but that only scratches the surface. The history of your country is very complex, filled with both richness and tragedy. I'd like to learn lots more on a first-hand basis!

Eu interesso é pela cultura mexicana, estudei os artistas mexicanos, eles eram uns gênios, fico curiosa de puder conhecer o México através das fotografias.

To be honest with you, not much - only stereotypes I'm afraid!
