48. I'm a gringa who spent my first 25 years in Mexico
Edited on Sat May-08-10 04:46 PM by lunatica
To me it's my first home. If I could I would return in a second. My son was born there and has dual citizenship. They are the best people on earth. They don't even know they're being generous or kind. They just are.
