Today’s post is a very special one for me! My writing often takes me back to a different time and place – one where life was always a little calmer, a little more independent, a lot simpler, and just the right dose of cultura and orgullo. That place, for me, has always been very clearly defined. It is the place where my parents grew up, where their parents grew up, where our deceased relatives are lying in their final resting spots (in the cerro of El Saúz), and where every summer as kids we spent magical days and nights learning who we were and the importance of where we came from. That place is Cerritos, San Luis Potosi, México!
So yesterday, when I was surfing the net and happened to come across this collection of pictures of Cerritos, of all places on Facebook, my heart literally skipped a beat. I was excited to have found such a great batch of images that so accurately bring to life the memories in my heart and mind of ‘Mi México’. Even more excited that I could finally draft this post and say ¡Bienvenidos a Mi Cerritos, San Luis Potosi, México!
