This site contain photos from several trips I made to Mexico since 2002. (Older photos from previous trips in 1967 and 1971 are available here. Some show scenes, in particular market scenes in the state of Chiapas, which have completely disappeared from today‛s Mexico.)


Mexico is one of the most diverse countries in the world, culturally, ethnically, geographically, climatically, gastronomically...and arguably also one of the most interesting to visit. But Mexico is big, traveling around takes time, and some areas are not quite safe. So, most of the country remains uncovered in this site.
