Hermosillo, Mexico

Hermosillo at a glance

By Sergio Camalich

Hermosillo is the capital city of the mexican state of Sonora, south to Arizona and the second biggest state in Mexico.

Known for being one of the hottest cities in the world, as it is located on a big desertic area, it is also home to gorgeous women everywhere you see, lots of great food and the coldest beers you’ll ever have.

It will give you amazing sunsets, beautiful beaches near the city and lots and lots of good friends.

Not only that, with enough time, it will give you amazing sunsets, beautiful beaches near the city and lots and lots of good friends.

You might say it lives in the past, where honor is a men’s most important quality, but with a great mix of modern and cosmopolite.

Also, Hermosillo is the place where I saw the world for the first time. That’s why I had to use my short time here and make this short photo essay in honor of my hometown.

Here’s to Hermosillo and its people!
