MEXICO | Wed, 23 Mar 2011 | By morgenvv | Views [588] | Scholarship Entry

Dawn comes early in Teotitlán del Valle, Mexico. Outside my door, the sounds of morning swell: the gentle scraping of a broom sweeping cobbles, the bagpipe bray of a donkey, the admonishments of one loud, insistent rooster. Whorls of low-hanging ... Read more >
