Mexico Is One of a Kind

There is an old Mexican saying "Como México no hay dos" which loosely translates as "Mexico is one of a kind".

Yesterday for the very first time I uploaded a slide show to YouTube.  It is a montage of photographs that I have taken during my travels to Mexico.  I attempted to show the great diversity of the country from its Pre-Hispanic ruins to its colonial towns and modern cities... its people, art, natural beauty, food and handicrafts.  I realize that it does not truly reflect the entire nation.  Mexico City, Yucatán and Oaxaca are overrepresented.  I have been to other parts of the country, but these are the places that I have visited most frequently since owning a digital camera.  In my description of the slide show, I apologize to any Mexicans whose states and cities are not included.  

As a musical background I chose "Huapango", a short symphonic work by the composer José Pablo Moncayo.  It is one of my favorite pieces of orchestral Mexican music.

Here is the link to the slide show...

  1. That was a good watch. And a nice soundtrack to go with it.

    1. Thanks, Gary. Glad you liked it. Did you notice that the music was played by your own Royal Philharmonic Orchestra?

  2. Never commented before, but I loved your slideshow and the music. I have been to some of the places and even recognize some I have not been to (ie. México City).
