PICKING UP WHERE WE LEFT OFF

PICKING UP WHERE WE LEFT OFF

  There were a few important sights we missed last year in Mexico City. One was the new Jumex Museum. We didn’t miss it for lack of trying. The first time we went to see it it was closed. The second day we went to see it most of it was closed because… Read More

WHY LIE?

WHY LIE?

The news isn’t bad enough these days. We are faced with ISIS burning innocent people alive and chopping off heads like it was the 15th Century, only now they get to immediately upload images to You Tube, for that 21st Century dopamine rush of cyber induced instant gratification.
