Museo de Antropologia, Mexico City
Have you ever been to the Museo de Antropologia in Mexico City? It is an incredible place. Here are two postcards sent from there, one sent from the first time I was in Mexico City and just beginning my travels through Latin America, and the other sent when I took my kids to Mexico City 20 years later.
The first postcard reminded me that when I left to travel in Latin America, my family put up a large map of Latin American in the breakfast room. When they received a postcard from me, they would put pins in every place I mentioned on the postcard, thus the listing: Puebla, Cholula, Merida, Cuernavaca, Uxmal. Through these pins, they were able to track my travels.
The second postcard was from a trip to Mexico with the kids. Even though we were on our way to Akumal, on the beach in the Yucatan, I wanted them to know that Mexico isn't just beaches. I think they got the message.
