love, love, love

Alec took this picture last summer, I loved how we look together, I love how we have built this relationship, I like how we learned to understand each other,I love how we started, eventhough I knew relationships are complicated, but if you love someone, everything goes easy. I have never been so in love before, I had never had someone soo close to me before, I feel in love, I miss the sunsets by the beach with my buddy!

life is a dream.

I want to live dreaming, about a happy tree and beutiful clows with funny figures in the blue sky.

I want to dream about the sun rise and me being awake all nigth. I want to dream I am flying high over the sea, and feel the wind in my eyes. I want to dream about a dream with pink roses and the soft skin of my mom, and me braken all the chaines in my life. I want to dream about love and chocolates, and a passionated kiss in the middle of the nigth. I want to live my life dreaming and always waking up with a good feeling.

Welcome to "El tianguis"

paint of the artist Mauricio Fernandez. Nowadays we can see this view of the markets in some towns in Mexico.

Paint of Diego Rivera "el cargador de flores"

Mural of the Tianguis during the prehispanic times. The artist capture the oldest Tianguis in Mexico the traditional tianguis of Tlatelolco in Mexico City.

The pictures behind were took in the traditional market "el Tianguis", this way of sell and buy products in the street begun since prehispanic times. They are placed in diferent parts of the city of Guadalajara, people go to this markets to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, etc. El tianguis its full of colors and it could gets crowd. The view of Tianguis has been inspirational for many artist. look images above.


corn leaves, that are used to do Tamales.

Chiles and seeds
fresh veggies

On this image Maria del Rosario and Angelina let me took this picture, they come to work from their town in the state of Michoacan(like 2.5 hrs from Guadalajara), they told me they get paid a daily salary, aproximatly $80.pesos (or 7 dls) after the season they go back to their towns (were are no electricity, clinics, schools or jobs), on my school was presented one day a documentary about the abuse of indigens people, is increible how people abuse of them, its not fear they have to work all day behind the sun for that money, but, do they have another choise? probably not afterwars in many towns in Mexico people live in unhuman conditions (extreme poverty), subsequently they come to work to the city as an alternative of their surviving .
The girls on the picture told me they are "indigenas" Purepechas and they speak purepecha and spanish too eventhough they coldnt go to school, they looked happy when they saw the image on my camara (I promised to give them the copy of this picture next sunday) .

street workers

In Mexico the crisis it has been develop a situation were many people have to work on the streets, without salary, or health insurance, waiting for what people can give them.
This situation has been study on the last decades, the accelerated growth of this informal economy it’s a subject with a huge impact in the lattes designs of economic politics.
The sources of the stadistics on the informal economy are not really loyal font, this reality is changing day by day, and the tools that the government use to count this situation are really complex. based in technics and metodologys with an allowable error, it is really considerable to trust.
The eforce to revored this numbers its inefficient, the metods the government have establish to change the informal work it has been insufficient too. This new kind of selfemployment have develop an alternative economy that represent the first font of money after the “remesas” send them for many mexican immigrants working in United States.
This people take the streets and show the survival force, the other alternative, on the unemployed lived in Mexico. Mexicans work as musicians, crowns, independent salesman, or even as a prostitutes, the unemployment its so big that many people decided take the streets as a daily “office”.

As an example any time you take the bus in Guadalajara, (city situated in the occident of Mexico), you will find an informal worker, most of the times they say on their speech: I’m an informal worker because at my age no one wants to hire me, or Im working on the streets because the fabric were I used to work quick me out, etc.
Sadly situation for many woman and man that are still strong enough to have a productive life. They have no choice if they want to keep supporting the feeding of their families.

The man in the picture creatively made his own speech and made a contrast of the society of before and the new or modern society. he described the way man used to love, he claverly made a comparation beetween the lyrics of the song before and now.Reflejando su picara y acertada perspectiva de la nueva sociedad.
