The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

This year, both Mexico and Indonesia are commemorating the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, with a photo exhibition on main street (Paseo de la Reforma and Praga street).

In 2007, the total trade value between Mexico and Indonesia had reached $870 million, which had more than doubled in the last four years.
Trade with Mexico has been heavily in favor of Indonesia for many years, thanks to strong Indonesian exports -- that reached $830 million last year. Mexico exported $40 million worth of goods to Indonesia in 2007.

Con motivo de la conmemoración por los 55 años de relaciones diplomáticas entre la República de Indonesia y México, el pasado 15 de noviembre en el Paseo de la Reforma se inauguró una exposición fotográfica, compuesta por imágenes cuyo objetivo es mostrar la riqueza cultural y natural de Indonesia, resaltando por un lado la gran diversidad que existe en dicha nación, y por otro los rasgos comunes que compartimos con ella.

Indonesia es un país del sudeste asiático con una de las relaciones más antiguas con México, la cual gira alrededor de tres rubros principales: político, comercial y de cooperación cultural. Sabías qué? Indonesia constituye el archipielago más grande del mundo, pues está formado por 17.500 islas, y que el primer europeo en llegar a estas islas fue Marco Polo en 1292.


Gracias por su visita / Thanks for visiting.

I am getting a little stronger. I am getting a nurse today and hopefully she can remove the tape that is driving me nuts and then the two or three stitches they left after they had cut the hole too large into my chest cavity under my left arm. The tape now bothers me more than the stitches.

TALC is the only thing I heard while in the hospital for 7 full days that caused even the old nurses to wince. It is a caustic stuff not like the name implies that makes things raw and that then will, hopefully, become scar tissue that prevents leaks and blowing out of the lung in the future.

It hurts and it takes all day for the hurt to ease. I had lots of morphine shots.

I lost the desire for coffee and have had none for about 10 days. I did drink and am allowed to drink decaf coffee but I don't really like it.

I am on a no salt or low salt diet and am still trying to get used to it. Even a dab of salt makes things taste better than no salt.

I still love your photography.

I found one photography search engine that meets the needs of all graphics designer and photo searchers.
It has about 6 million photos!
