Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Patricia Riveroll

I was born and raised in Mexico City, but twenty three years ago I made Ottawa, Canada my home towm. Last July after my son had just donated a kidney to his father I was visiting my mother and decided to take the day off and go to Xochimilco. I was a little girl again, although I could not see things the way I did fifty years ago. I must say it was a lovely day.

Location: Xochimilco, Mexico City, Mexico.
