My first visit to Mexico was a quick trip across the Baja California border in the early 1980s in my friend Miguel's 1960 VW. We slept on the beach, drank the water, and ate fish tacos from street vendors in Ensenada, south of Tijuana. Little did I know that I would return for an entire summer in 1989 and then visit nearly every border crossing and a few northern interior spots during seven years spent living in Arizona and Texas in the 1990s.
Your local library might have a subscription to American
Focus. If so, look up a cover article my wife Pamela and I wrote
the Winter 1991 issue. It is in the form of a photo essay about our
trip to Puebla, Mexico City, Guanajuato, and Oaxaca.
In the Summer of 1989 my wife and I spent 7 weeks in Mexico as students. Visit her site to see pictures from our trip.
I have visited 12 of Mexico's 30 states, plus its federal district.
