Viva Mexico Siempre

Another Job for Tequila_TEMP

Mexico will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the first country I travelled to on my own, impetuously, at a time when I was an emotional basket case on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I showed up late at night carrying only a vague address of a woman who didn’t seem aware I was coming, carrying nothing but a little kid’s backpack and a knowledge of Spanish far more rustic than I have now. I had a hand full of fresh new stitches and nerve damage. Everyone who knew me was pretty convinced I’d either come back dead or land myself in jail.

Instead, Mexico fixed me. My experience there is a big part of why I’m so driven to travel now. I have long wanted to return to Mexico, but I’ll admit I think a large part of my original infatuation with the country was an emotional one—I wanted a chance to see the country itself, rather than just seeing how it changed me.

What I discovered, living in Mexico for three months, was a place that never stopped surprising me.

Travel Writer and (Semi) Reformed Party Girl Sarah Monster from her Triggers & Sparks blog.

And like it does for Sarah, Mexico – dear Mexico – holds a special place in my heart too. It is after all, as the French writer and poet André Breton noted in 1938, “the most surrealist country in the world”. And thankfully, it remains that way today.

Anyway, Alles is wearing the following kit in this tequila-drizzled picture.

I love red but matching what other people’s idea of what “red” is can sometimes be a bit difficult.
