  • I´m a giver. I love giving (and, hopefully, will always have a life where giving will be my priority)

    We went last day to give some 140 Mazahua kids a little confort. The Mazahuas are an indigenous group of the highlands of Mexico´s Central Plateau. It´s a "short" drive from Mexico City where you exit through Santa Fe, Mexico City´s flaming finantial and economic sector, to one of the poorest regions of the Country. Two hours later I find myself looking at malnourished and poorly educated secundary children.

    We´ve been gathering clothes, blanquets and even quilts for this cold region (they wake up at -5°C this time of the year) ...There´s a lot to do here, and hopefully we will continue to do many things for this people. Mexico is a region of CONTRASTS (and I will speak a LOT about all the contrast I have to look on an everyday basis). Nevertheless, friday was a good day. 140 Kids have now warm clothes and a good blanket to endure the harshness of the cold and dry Mexican highland. Some 20 students from the school where I teach helped me with their hearts and hands to do this.

    This is just the begining I keep telling them... (and they keep repeating it!).
