Home again


After two months on the road, mostly in India, I returned to Mexico on Sunday, New Year's Eve. Where is everybody? I've rarely seen the city so quiet, so free of traffic as it is this week--a soft re-renty.

My body is jet-lagged, my head still swimming with myriad images of India, but I'm happy to be home and plan to become a bit more Mexico-oriented in the upcoming days.
