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.

Tattooed Fruit

Tattooed Fruit Is on Way - New York Times: "'With the right scanning technology the produce could even be bar-coded with lots of information: where it comes from, who grew it, who picked it, even how many calories it has per serving,' said Fred Durand III, president of Durand-Wayland. 'You could have a green pepper that was completely covered with coding. Or you could sell advertising space.'"

What's up with advertising tattoos? Though I'd rather that awful online gambling site would spend their money on fruit advertising than buying people's forehead space.
