I'm from Mexico City and lived in the U.S. for a total of more than 24 years. Now I'm back in Mexico. I realized I was seeing my country through the eyes of a native stranger. This is an attempt to process the differences, to explain Mexico to the U.S. and the U.S. to Mexico. With digressions along the way.

This planned community is actually quite close to my hometown! I'm not surprised, really, as there is a large school for the deaf in nearby Sioux Falls. For whatever reason, there are a lot of deaf folks in SD. I think it's a great idea, especially in a state that does its best to ignore those who are different from the mainstream.

Here's the town's official web site:
