It was pouring rain and the wind blew the water sideways, the puddles dancing as though they contained invisible little dervishes. It was impossible to see out the taxi window so I kept lowering it and sticking my head out to take in as much as possible before leaving this magical place. There was little time and I had gone through so much to get here.<br /><br />I kept telling myself that it was better than nothing, but was it? I had looked so forward to seeing this land that when stormy seas decided it was impossible, I actually felt like going home. The trip was over for me.<br /><br />My friend and I, with two strangers, found a taxi driver who would show us what he could. He was a kind man who spoke no English. At one point he stopped the car so that we could gaze at a rainbow. The rainbow lied, weather only got worse.<br /><br />It was time to leave if we were to make it back to the ship before it sailed. Through the rain and mist I saw something white… an image of a perfect white horse. <br /><br />It wasn’t just the horse or location that affected me; it was as if he was looking right into my eyes and saying, “Come, I will show you all of Patagonia.”<br /><br />I held my camera out the window and pushed the button.

Letters from Apizaco

Customer Reviews
“Letters from Apizaco” is the memoir of a boy-crazy seventeen-year old living in Mexico as a high school exchange student in 1976 as told through her letters home, journal entries and correspondence after returning to the U.S. It is the story of the kindness, sincerity and warmth of the Mexican people, especially Felipe and Evelia Gonzalez, so proud of their country, wanting to show it off to their new foreign daughter, Kim.<br /> Not everyone in Apizaco welcomed the presence of an American in their city. From an all-white community, north of Boston during the era of school desegregation, Kim would become the only white girl, often reminded of such by passersby staring and yelling out “Güera!” from their Volkswagon windows. She would discover that derogatory language referencing homosexuals and people of color were used on both sides of the border. <br /> After a brief adjustment period battling Moctezuma’s revenge, a sense of alienation and homesickness, Kim did not want the adventure of a lifetime to end and leave the Gonzalez family nor her inseparable friends, Norma and Felipe. She kept her crush on Felipe a secret from Norma, completely infatuated with him after hearing him sing and play guitar in the neighborhood chapel. A hopeless love triangle emerged once Felipe revealed his true feelings for Norma over a shared bottle of Mezcal. <br /> Apizaco is a small industrial city in the state of Tlaxcala, roughly one hundred miles southeast of Mexico City. At an altitude of 8,070 feet, it was founded for its location on the railroad between the capital and the Atlantic coast. The rooftop of a retired steam engine, La Maquinita, placed as a monument to steam locomotion at the entrance to the city, became one of many after school hangouts for Kim and her new Mexican friends and classmates. <br /> Unfortunately, attending high school in Mexico turned out to be a torture to be endured. Three years of Spanish instruction were hardly enough for an intelligent sounding conversation, much less academic success. Bored and lost, Kim copied meaningless notes off the board in Mexican History, Art History, Chemistry, Biology, Philosophy, Physics and Ethics, while entertaining herself, daydreaming, carving pro-USA slogans on her desk and passing notes to Norma and host sister, Mayu. Although a graduate in the top ten percent of her class at Triton Regional High School, Kim became a failure and behavior problem at El Instituto Fray Pedro de Gante. A lesson of compassion and empathy towards our non-English speaking immigrant children in the U.S can be learned from “Letters from Apizaco.” <br />

None of the countries of South America, except Chile, has been<br />demarcated by Nature from its neighbour; it is to historical events<br />that they owe their present boundaries. This is eminently true of<br />Peru, which is, save on her ocean side, marked off from the adjoining<br />countries neither by river line nor by mountain line nor by desert. Her<br />territory includes regions naturally very dissimilar, about each of<br />which it is proper to say a few words here.<br /><br />The western strip, bordering on the Andes and the Pacific, is<br />nearly all pure desert, sterile and uninhabited, except where those<br />river-valleys referred to in the last chapter descend to the sea.<br />

The walls of Sacsahuaman are built in three parallel lines, the<br /> lowest of which stands on level ground, at the very base of the hill;<br /> the second about six yards behind the first, and therefore on the<br /> slope; the third still higher on the slope, three yards behind the<br /> second. The space behind each wall has been filled in and levelled,<br /> so as to be a nearly flat terrace, supported by the wall in front<br /> of it. These three lines of wall extend along and protect the whole<br /> northern face of the hill, nearly six hundred yards long, between the<br /> points where it falls abruptly into deep ravines to the east and the<br /> west, which give a natural defence.
