Una Ciudad Mexicana A Mexican City
Cuernavaca grew up as a sort of refuge for people working in Mexico City, close to the Capital District, but far from its noise, its traffic and pollution. With my camera and our descriptions, my wife and I tried to highlight the peculiarities of this Mexican city: its warm climate, its tropical vegetation and flowers, its wonderful colored sky, the majestic volcano that dominates this city. And, of course, the vitality of its people, and the richness of its culture and history. If the readers have already been in Cuernavaca, I hope they will find in these images the same emotions and sentiments they felt during their stay. Otherwise, I hope they will find in this book a reason to visit this beautiful city.
