Instant Memories: Sumidero Canyon

Continuing with my series of Instant Memories, here’s the one from my trip to the Sumidero Canyon, the first one from my journey through Latin America. With its 1000 meters, from the surface of the Grijalva River to the top of the canyon, it is one of the biggest canyons in the world and a really… (continue reading)

An afternoon in Kino Bay

Kino Bay is a small beach town located less than an hour away from the capital city of Hermosillo, Sonora. Since it is not very developed, this makes it the ideal weekend escape from the city, where you can enjoy the desert, the beach and everything that comes along with it. That’s why I didn’t want to leave… (continue reading)

San Juan Chamula: The mestizo church

When I was in primary school, they always told us about how the Spanish missionaries had to adapt all the different indigenous religions so the natives could be converted to Catholicism, but I never truly understood how they managed to do this or how was it like. San Juan Chamula is the place where it all made sense. Located around 15km away from… (continue reading)

Bar Hopping: Hermosillo

If there is one thing I love, is beer—almost any kind of alcohol, for that matter. And one of my favorite experiences while traveling is drinking the local stuff, the way the locals do it.  That’s why I decided to create a new section on the blog dedicated to the glorious art of Bar Hopping. For… (continue reading)

The first time I was able to photograph the Milky Way

Ever since I was a little child, I’ve had a deep fascination for space, stars, black holes and anything in between those subjects.

Obviously, every time I see a majestic… (continue reading)

Beautiful sunset at Hermosillo

Almost 3 years ago, I left Hermosillo to go and live in Mexico City. And even though I fell completely in love with the capital, there were still a couple of things I constantly kept missing. One of these things was my hometown’s truly astonishing sunsets. I believe it might be a mixture of the desert heat,… (continue reading)

Quick trip through the route to the Sierra Sonorense

If you ask anyone what’s the first thing that comes to their mind when they think of the mexican state of Sonora, they’ll surely say one of the next few things: Heat, desert or carne asada. Sure enough, that’s what best represents my home state, but there’s also a whole other world if you travel deeper into the… (continue reading)

A girl playing with water [Highlight]

We were in front of the Monumento a la Revolución, one of the most emblematic places in Mexico City. The sun setting behind it while hundreds of people gathered by the public fountains, young and old, having the time of their lives on a lazy sunday afternoon. It’s funny how things take a new meaning… (continue reading)

Eating at the San Juan market

Continuing with my series of posts about being a tourist in your own city, I decided to go to one of the most famous markets in Mexico City, and one in which I had never been to before: the San Juan market, which is located near the city’s downtown. I’d heard wonderful things about this… (continue reading)
