Three faces of Mexico - photo: leyle

No matter whether you're a first-time tourist, a regular visitor or someone who calls Mexico home, the spirit of the country is so infectious, the warmth and character so appealing, the culture so intriguing and complex, it would be a hard heart indeed that could leave and not leave more than a little behind.

We'll bring you both an insider's (Khadi) and a visitor's (leyle) view of just a small part of the pleasures that Mexico can offer - beloved customs, fabulous sights, treasured moments. It's a big country, with many different regions, many diverse aspects, a long and complicated history and present - a lifetime and more's worth of study and experience would still leave places unvisited, present-day problems stil posed and the mysteries of long-lost civilizations unsolved.

A page like this can't possibly be more than a taster, a mere spoonful of a flavoursome dish such as a Oaxacan mole negro where 30 and more ingredients - some quite unexpected - combine to make a delicious sauce full of subtle and spicy flavours - and that's just one of the several dishes on the menu.

So it is with Mexico - a pot full of a wonderfully rich and spicy stew just waiting for you to ladle out a plateful of unforgettable morsels for yourself.

These Mexican reviews and photos were posted by both leyle and khadi. Please see our Homepage re photo use.

    Thanks for the welcome. I found your tips on Mexico very interesting. My next trip will include a day tour to Tijuana and the safety tips were most welcome.

    Thanks for your comments on my Progreso pages. It sounds like you are interested in Mexican culture, if so, you must go to the Yucatan peninsula and learn about the Mayan culture.It is fascinating and the friendly Mayans are so eager to share it with you.
