“Speaking of México always makes my heart swell.” – Fernando Delgadillo
The last few months have been long and exhausting; however, our state can finally begin to reopen. I think that many of us have mixed feelings about this: we’re of course excited to live somewhat “normal” lives, but we’re also extremely nervous as most of us have had family or friends that have been in poor health this year.
But if we Mexicans have one trait, it’s the ability to always look on the bright side of things. This has always been key to our culture and during the month of our independence, rather than lament the injustices that our nation faces, we celebrate the fact that we live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Besides honoring the qualities of our Paisanos during this most patriotic of months, we have plenty of reading that screams “Viva México, Yucatán, and its people.” Marco writes about the history of two important buildings in La Plancha and Greta spoke to the proponents of a movement that combines a love of our planet and a passion for fashion. Colette tells us why our state is a magnificent place to go birding, particularly this time of year, and Cassie recounts her family’s journey towards reducing their carbon footprint. Violeta delights with a Maya love story and Ralf discusses must-try Mexican cuisine that will help you celebrate el Quince. On my end, I reflected on the best time of the year to visit Yucatán, just to realize that it’s always a good time to discover the Tierra del Mayab.
We’re so excited to receive visitors once again. If you decide to travel at this time, please do so responsibly and follow all the measures that have been put in place to keep you, your loved ones, and our front-line workers healthy. We hope to see you very soon.
